Not had any noises that I noticed (usually on the ball with Turbo noises as I also run a Ph1 R5 GTT and a R21 Turbo !!)
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 EGR 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
