    my boost is some times abit wierd and other times its there alright, just wondering if I should change my BCS

    although mine doesnt splutter as such, more a smooth but slow acceleration then all of a sudden BANG boost kicks in.

    rear is a piece of piss to do - just dont attempt it from the top!

    axle stands or a ramp will make it a total doddle to do
