Paul, just keep checking mate. Ive seen ph2 1.8SEs go for sub £500 as salvage. You just have to be persistant!
Well, today i started to take out the Sport+ engine. All thats left todo is unbolts the gear linkage, exhaust and hubs, then unbolt the mounts and its good to drop Should be sat on the pallet by about 3pm tomorrow (working til 1;30pm :lol. I actually think its easier to remove one of these than an N15 engine.
I did notice that the Sport+ doesnt have a speedo pinion in the gearbox, so it must get the speed from the ABS system, but there is a plug on the loom for one. The Twister however does have a speedo pinion, so i wonder if itll work if i put the pinion in the '18 box and plug it in? Hmmm...
That all looks very familiar that process. Cracking work mate. Ring the landlord up and tell him you're going to flog rhe lathe for scrap and I'm sure he'll get his arse into gear. You can scrap my old GA if you haven't already btw. Few more pennies for the project or at least a bag of crisps!
