Unhappy sti 3 engine knocking

hi every1, in need of advice, ive got a sti 3, had it bout a year now, problems started when i had the car serviced, missing and running like a bag of pooooo. since then ive taken the car elsewhere due to bad reports of the previous garage, turns out that the spark plugs had'nt been tightened up and wer hanging out, payed for new plugs to be fitted, 2 days later a knocking has appeared and im down on power. any info would be a big help. p.s are there any manuals out there on rebuilding the engine?

Hope you sort this,
First ring garage and find out what they did, what plugs were fitted

Knocking... a bit more info would be nice to help you... IE is the knock metalic, is it from the top of cylinder area... is it there when ideling, when cold or hot, when under load or not etc

You can get manuals on cd from e-bay for as little as £2.00 or even down load from as a PDF

Unless your are good with the tools and have experience would not advise trying to strip/rebuild yourself... suggest you get in touch with a specialist and discuss your problems... Graham Goode racing may be able to help

Hope this post points you in the right direction

Nobby
