Good man. I would never break mine. Also yours is in the best colour. I maybe biased because mine in also a red lcr. Lol.

Better the devil you know, with forged rods you will at least know you aint going to have issues. Good luck and keep posting updates mate.

Good to see that you repaired it.

My engine failed on mine, just got it back on the road but have lost all love for it and will be selling it.

I could never contemplate selling/stripping mine.
Its done 148k original clutch, just serviced yesterday with a new oil strainer/pick up fitted.
Uses no oil and still pulls brilliant as its always done.
I believe these cars and engines are strong if you follow the servicing to the letter, change the belt tensioner and pump in good time and use OEM where you can.
Alloys buckle easily though !!

Good man... can't wait to see your reaction when you get it all done and dusted... you'll be upset you ever thought about getting rid of her

Opted for decat because racecar! Haha, nah, I just like the idea of having that extra bit of flow, probably going to get a cat pipe made up that I can swap in and out as needed. Yes that would be a great idea! Mods ??
