    Puddy, I have been on this site for about 4 years and think I have only heard of you car being roadworthy for about 1 week.

    Seriously, glad it is on the mend

    You ain't wrong mate !

    I spent a lot of money geting it mapped properly,it melted

    1 st time on the strip!

    I spent a lot of money getting the head ported, it wasn't!

    So most of the money I spent the 1st time round was

    wasted

    Look forward to seeing this car back out again.

    I'd be suprised if it was a fault of the mapping that caused it to melt though if you took it to Harvey ? LOADS of other things could of caused it and him and Ahmed are more than capable of mapping any yb.

    What was the score with the head ? where did that come from ?

    I am getting it re- mapped when its up and running again so we

    will find out then about the original "dyno session"

    The head was done to "grp a big port" spec by a certain

    tuner who used to sell "total seal rings" in dagenham .

    I paid a lot of money to get it done and ike has texted me

    tonight to tell me its down 25% on one of his heads on his

    own flow bench !

    Well fooked off

    puddy
    Its one I bought for the V6tt and it has never been used so the whole lot, inc plugs is new. Would need to get enough for it so I could buy a simpler ecu with a bit of change otherwise i might as well use it.
    Be a shame to waste all of its features running an N/A 4 pot though.

    Good luck with the engine BTW
