The cambelt job is £600+ so add that onto the asking price. If it's got no history I wouldn't bother though, go and drive another one (good example) and see if it feels better. If it doesn't, get something else :D
I'm not totally sure if I need any other bits to go with the cams, I'll ask the mechanic before hand to be sure!
197 cams with matched inlets, 182 manifold and cat back + decat/sports cat gets around 190bhp from what ive read. After mapping of course. Some get mid 190's 👍
Dropped the car off to have the cage fitted today, pick it up next weekend.
Also got some 197 cams so I'm spending my afternoon cleaning them up, the toilet paper I bought recently is coming in handy :P
Do the easy, free stuff like spare wheel, rear seats, carpet etc, and then spend money on the important stuff like pads, brake fluid and some track days.
If you get the bug you will probably want to strip it more, if you don't then you can chuck stuff back in and no harm done.
Yeah I knew about having to disconnect it when not in use. I don't have a switch fitted yet so ill just be diconnecting the negative terminal for now. Can't this being an issue other than having no alarm.
Battery fitted, the car started so that's a win. Lets see how it goes from now on with drain etc.
Discovered some more french twatness too, lets put two earth points tucked out the way, right next to the headlight electric so it's impossible to get a spanner on. Genious.
Battery tray painted and ready to be fitted.
I painted the cup spolier but the end result was patchy and nothing like the original paint so I have revered back to the original spolier. Not too bothered as the brake light works in it and it's a tad lighter lol.
Was looking good at primer...
