A ghost drifts in......

Post by MR2Jay »

Good morning all you old members and hey to anyone new....

Old school member making a return here. Yup, after a 2 year hiatus, it's high time I brought my sorry butt back into the fold and got my Rev 3 turbo back on the road...

OK, a little back story. About 2-3 years ago, my turbo developed a nasty fuel leak. Considering I'd changed most of the fuel lines, this really only left one place it could be coming from - The injector rail. I've also been pursuing a semi professional career in DJing, plus my personal life has, shall we say, gone through a massive change so the car has been sat in the garage, waiting for the time where I had the time and the enthusiasm to finally get into the engine bay and sort this issue out.

Just recently, I've been getting more involved with cars again, be that attending the odd show, nipping into Caffiene And Machine or simply helping others repair their cars and I think it's high time I got my butt in gear and sorted mine out. I REALLY miss driving her but I'm a long way off being there.

So, I'm afraid I'm back. I will be picking brains on certain things (but I'll save that for a project page or general posts) - It's time to get her back where she belongs to be :th:

Thanks Guys,

@MRHAPPY62, no...Unfortunately I had to sell that one. All part of the personal shake up I'm afraid. Kept the one I've had the longest though :th:
