    cambelt *pooof!*

    As some of you may of read from my boost problems thread cambelt has either snapped or jumped off (more likely to of snapped) , my fault for not getting it booked in sooner to get it sorted! nevermind... was just wondering what cost im going to be looking at ?

    obviously valves are most probably going to be bent i guess? and is it a new head...

    anyone had this happen and rebuilt ?

    not having much luck at the moment only had the car about a month!
