Took it back to the garage today. Difficult to start and very smoky, there is no power either it is very very slow. You can hear the turbo whistle though not much effect. The garage are starting work on it on Monday stripping down the head to see if there is any other damage. I suppose i it's that bad the choice is either repair or 2nd hand engine. Starting to wish I had never bought the thing. Oh well fingers crossed.

I did enjoy the 1st drive of it back from Manchester and was happy with the performance. so I'd better stop moaning. Will let you know what happens on Monday once the head is off.

Currently in bigandyd's garage:
