    Pi$$ed Off

    Just spent last night in -4 conditions removing my old turbo unit

    Then I spent today in the pissing rain putting the new one on,

    Went to prime it and nothing, battery shagged, so Got my other car to jump in, managed to get enough power to prime the turbo, but not enough to start the car,

    The whole time the alarms going off and people are looking out of their houses,

    Oh well new battery tomorrow and that should be it Keeping my fingers crossed, as I never did the last turbo had a garage do it, but they were all booked up this time round.

    well, you had it lucky, just putting a turbo on, on both occasions i removed my engine and put a new one in all in the poring rain.
