Turbo was blown on my car so replaced it, solved that problem however bore1/injector1 wasnt firing properly so I changed injector and same problem was there.

    My bonnet also flew up on the slip road as I was gaining speed to join the motorway (approx 50mph). Smashed the windscreen - thankfully the road wasn't that busy and I managed to steer over to the hard shoulder. Extremely frightening experience. The windscreen, bonnet and roof where all...
