It's had some work done before I got it so I thought it would be a safe bet. Head gaskets, water pump, timing belt kit, new turbo, fmic, fuel reg lightened flywheel it starts and runs and boosts but breaths a bit I wasn't happy with it so called in at Sheffield for a power run to find out turbo control not piped up so that's sorted and it's run 230 ish I think it made so I did a compression test and found out why it was breathing. To bring a long story to an end I was running a 3 cylinder imperza... oops time for rebuild

Was going to drop a second hand engine in as a quick fix so bought an engine gear box and wiring loom that someone had for beatle conversion but on more reading it think it's a phase 1.5 and mines a phase 2 so it parked up for a few months with no engine but I may have some parts for sale
