    I have had my workshop for over 5 years now, its really for my job, but there's space for my Megane :laughing::laughing:
     
  12. What are the symptoms for this, or is it a catastrophic failure and not a slow deterioration?

    It lost power and wasn't running very well, starts and drives, no smoke from the exhaust, the owner bore scoped it and there is damage to number 1 piston, think he caught it in time, but needs stripping, think its going to get forged
     
  14. I see.

    Mine has been burning oil on tick over for a while, but no loss of power! It made 300bhp+ lol.

    I'm thinking valve seals tbh

    get a bore scope in the plug holes just to make sure, it might not have got that far yet to cause a power loss
     
  16. I've got the engine ready to pull out now, just waiting on a hoist that should be here today.
     
  17. Boom, pretty easy actually!

  19. This is seriously impressive and unbelievably time consuming!

    I've started doing mine this afternoon, genuinely think this is a ten hour job to get it to this standard!

    you will need some spare time to sort that lot out, not really sure it makes any difference on forced induction though :openmouth:
