Hi all,

After a really start to the year blowing my turbo and then melting a piston due to oil starvation which has meant my 2.5TDi has had to be scrapped, there is light at the end of the tunnel!!



I have got hold a chap (friend of a friend) who is locally known to be somewhat of a diesel whiz! He has the parts to build about 4 ACV engines and is putting me one together in the next couple of weeks so the old girl will back soon and better than ever!

Watch this space.......:ILU:

Your selling it anyway?! :eek: Ah well, needs must an all that... Least she aint scrap T:
I know but I can't justify doing a 250 mile round trip a few times a week in my van with just me in it, besides it will kill me on fuel costs alone! Gutted to have to let her go, but like you say 'needs must' :(

Just hope I don't struggle to sell now!
