Did you pull the one out of the mandarin car for sale at Brodies?

If you did you got a cracking engine as the car had only done 75k miles and the engine had been replaced by Citroen due to early failure.

The flip side is that you may get lynched by some members on here...

Thus fella was good enough to offer the remains back to the community.. Most tcts were lost after the engines got removed.. That engine was replaced in the maroon car by another modified engine out of a rotton K reg 24v I'm surprised your needing to do anything to yours so soon..
