Hi,
I bought a r32 gtst on friday up in Mansfield, which is a good 400 miles away from where i live in Cornwall, i drove it to Cambridge to stay the night there and drove it back yesterday. it over heated twice???? and then when i finally got home the bottom end suddenly started knocking, so i slowed down but it was too late and the con rod put a nice big hole in the the side of the engine.
What a joke.
Is this ment to happen?? i didnt think it was, there was no tell tell signs.
It has a GTROC sticker on the back window and i was wondering if any1 knew the car from on here?
the registration is J563 MHC


any help would be great thanks

hmm no it isnt supposed to happen . . . . that sucks arse!

looks like you possibly have been sold a duff car my friend. how high did the engine temps get?

license plates being shown on forums are frowned upon on here by mods though i think.
what mods were on the car? what mileage etc?

hks mushroom filter, greedy boost controller, but the boost was turned right down.
sorry bout showing the license plate number but its for ne1 that noes the car to see if they knew it was going when they sold it so i can go back to the person i bought it off.
the engine boiled the water, once wen i was in a traffic jam and the other time when i was sitting letting the turbo cool.

i suppose that is true japfreak! it is your car so your choice!

have you spoken to the old owner about it? i doubt anything will happen but it never hurts to ask!

i dont think it needs a rebuild it needs a replacement engine!

did you get it checked over before hand? i assume so

to be honest for the price of a rebuild your better off buying another GTS-T

Rubbish, Matty - far cheaper to get an RB25 in there!! R32 GTSTs are rarer than 33s and tend to go for decent money

Was it bought privately or a trader? If it was a trade then you can get your money back - there is no such thing as 'sold as seen', and trading standards will be on your side..

pics of the car will better than a reg plate!

Who checked the car over?

What temp did it get too? Temp gauge

Was there coolant in there or just water?

How long did you leave it running in the traffic and on your drive before it over heated?
