    Finally fixed it

    that annoying ticking noise that VX so kindly told me would cost over £400 to fix.(cracked manafold)!

    Well i striped it down on saturday afternoon and found within about 5 mins that the nuts wer slack on drivers side.

    slackend manafold anyway, checked everything looked ok. no damage so tightend all up and guess what no tickking!

    so bugger you VX and your £400 bill!

    well chuffed.

    that my turbo and manafold been given the ok now.

    and the dumpvalve prob is sorted too.

    its sticking so gave it a wee clean wi WD40 and its going fine so far.
