I think because of the condition of the shell I won't be chucking money at it really, it already has coil overs 2.0ltr engine and few other nice bits like the sound system, now all the welding is done I'm going to use it as my daily car and focus on getting my mk2 finished as thats the car I dont mind throwing money at lol

I also do have a bare mint mk3 shell in my unit so I may use the si until it's unrepairable and build my shell with the bits from the si but will have to see how she gets on lol

It was running rough as a bag of nails with a horrendous flat spot and couldn't figure out why, iv had it apart three times to check timing and what not and all was fine... And then yesterday I unplugged the maf sensor and the flat spot went away and it now runs and revs free as a bird so I may run it like that until I can sort a new one unless someone can confirm it's ok to use without one in that case I'll leave it aha

Also noticed I don't have a belt on my abs pump and kind seem to find out anywhere?

How's your si Ben?

is it not worth getting a replacement maf? You tried cleaning the pins on it?

no idea about yours abs mate unfortunately.

Pov actually looks good lol! Need to get my cossie bib fitted...

Mine's ok mate. Connected up the new battery yesterday and filled her with coolant, just a case of draining old fuel, putting some fresh stuff in then hoping for the best!
