Good stuff and your doing a great job. Garages are there most of the time to fleece and screw things up. I have very little faith in people in the garage and aftermarket tuning scene. Nicks example is one of many won’t be the last either.Don't lose faith GTRNick, I have been building my car myself as I couldn't afford for someone to do the manifold gasket for me (turns out is was a turbo gasket anyway, lol) - the money I saved I have upgraded my turbos, bought a new plenum, and many other refurb parts for the car. I got stuck getting the turbos out, stuck getting the manifolds off, stuck getting the turbos and manifolds back in again... There were times I was so angry and disillusioned with the car I wanted to sell it or set fire to it... I walked away, came back and managed to do the bits I was stuck on, I'm now getting closer to putting the car back together again and finally enjoy it! (Providing she starts and I haven't ****ed anything up!)
It is different to your situation having spent a lot of money, but the awful feeling in the pit of your stomach is the same. I don't know who you used, but I hope a resolution can be found and you get your car back to running as it should. :thumbsup:
If you have a pair of hands, a bit of common sense and logical thinking nothing is beyond most people to be able to do 75% of work on their cars.
