Not had any noises that I noticed (usually on the ball with
noises as I also run a Ph1 R5 GTT and a R21
what I have noticed from time to time is when you put your foot down to accelerate it doesn't seem to pull wheras other times it seems to pull like a train
I often wondered whether this could be caused by a lazy/sticking
valve,but having had a new 'improved' type fitted 9 months ago I kinda ruled it out....
Sounds like i'm in for a bumpy ride,which is a shame really coz I love the car,just not the unreliability and expence.
Currently in rogerreno's garage:
1987 GT Turbo + 1989 R21 Turbo
