    Thumbs Up More Big Thanks For G Man

    Having Had Engine Problems With The CT I Contacted G MAN To Discuss The Options Open To Me. He Gave Me Some Sound Advice On Rebuilding The LET Or The VXR Conversion. So The Choice Was Made To Opt For The VXR Engine And Gearbox. The Smoking Coupe Left Friday To G MAN And With Regular Updates On His Progress Through Saturday I Drove To His Late Sunday Morning To Collect It. It Never Missed A Beat The 150m Trip Back.
    Excellent Job Gareth I Am Well Pleased

    I'm wondering if I keep my coupe turbo long term if I should fit a LEH, do you mind me asking the cost?
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    £3k for just the engine? Or £3k for engine and 6 speed box?


    Courtenay charge £6k for just the engine conversion (Althoug it is a new engine)
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    LEH is definately the way to go IMO, best move I made on the GSi.
