Question Couple of questions...

Howdy all,

I'm looking at a '99 UK Turbo at the moment and it looks sweet. Only thing is though, there appears to be quite a few bolts and bits in the engine riddled with rust (pic attached), is this anything to worry about? The car comes with full dealer service history and has low miles.

If I buy the car, i'll be hoping to get a few bits and pieces fitted. Can anyone recommend a garage in the East Lothian area?

Last question, the car has been fitted with a dump valve and rear silencer. Do these mods require a remap after fitment?

Cheers,

Stevie

Re: Couple of questions...

looks fine to me mate, as long as it isn't smoking do the normal checks. Rip the dump valve off and bin it, no need for a remap with the exhaust but if ya gonna change a few bits then it won't hurt.

Re: Couple of questions...

I've got a bailey DV too, had it on mine for over two years with no problems. But, I do think that it effects the mpg and to be honest I got very fedup with the WHOOSH after a couple of months.
