  1. Looking good mate and that bov looks like a decent bit of kit, i have a forge adjustable one on my classic which is quite good but not sure if they made them for the hawk ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  2. Looking absolutely mint bud i wish my bay looked like that ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  3. Nice one i think we will all have to get together mate and organise something ๐Ÿ‘ It sure is great, has to be one of the best racing series going about at the moment and it nearly always rains at knockhill, it can be 25 degrees in dunfermline and minus 10 at knockhill lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚, we make sure we are prepared for any weather
  4. I hope she appreciates the sacrifice you're making just so she can get on the road lol ๐Ÿ˜‚
  5. Haha that wouldn't work then ๐Ÿ˜‚, insurance is a fortune for the young ones we just got a new apprentice stareted with us who's 17 and he paying 2.5k for a fiesta 1.25 and thats with a black box ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  6. How old is the wee man bud, my lad is 12 they could always come along for a ride and to look at the other scoobs ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  7. Cool we may have to meet up and boost in together if you like, we normally stay at my mum's in kincardine on the Saturday night so we don'thave to drive all the way up again in the morning as we go for the whole weekend, we have never been brave enough to camp coz knockhill has its own micro climate haha ๐Ÿ˜‚
  8. Anyone ever go to the touring cars, me and the missus go every year knockhill and croft, would be good to get a few of us going
  9. Aye same here i have my two every other weekend mate but more or less free any other time, weekends probs best for me but could do evenings with a bit of notice ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  10. We should arrange a wee meet between us coz would defo be up for that and a wee run somewhere and could probs get my mate with his sti to come along aswell, they have general meets at hermiston gate aswell๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  11. Welcome to the club buddy ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  12. I'm down in the borders bud, there are a couple off meets up the central belt way i think one of the best ones is tartan tarmac i've never been to one yet but my mate from stenhousemuir goes to some and says its really good, i would be up for a meet seeing as there seems to be a few folk from around your area joining the club, gfb are ment to be pretty good so could be worth a shot coz as like @Kdyjas says hks are quite expensive ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  13. Firstly welcome to the club ๐Ÿ‘, for the likes of oem parts most use importcarparts.co.uk the boy Luke there knows his stuff and the parts are reasonably priced, i used scoobyworks i think it was to get my fuel pump and their service was great but you can also get things like that from ebay aswell not so sure about a turbo although a few folk on here use scoobyclinic as their turbos seem to get a good rep, oh and thats a tidy looking motor you have there ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

  15. Sure is pal it's good being able to put the foot to the floor and not have to worry
  16. Happy days mate really good to hear you're back on the road ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  17. Welcome to the club ๐Ÿ‘, tidy looking motor you have there
  18. Good news everything is back to normal no overboost and the needle on boost gauge stays perfectly still where as it was bouncing about before
  19. Seems to have done the trick mate, finished it off last night and got it out today although i never really got to boost it much as was in traffic most of the way, going out soon so will see how things go ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  20. Aye i'm sure the last shell station is in fort William haha but would fill up some jerrycans down this way as it's probs double the price up there, does look quality though a couple of boys at work have been there and say its amazing the roads and the views, theres 2 roads the mountain road or the wimp road lol which goes round it ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  21. I would be up for a wee meet somewhere my best mate lives in stenhousemuir he has a blob sti and we sometimes go a wee run out by the coast and stop for a chippy, we've been thinking about doing the applecross run this year, it looks proper good blasting through the tunnels on the mountain road ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘
  22. Been having a little boost spike problem since repairing the turbo so took it off and found the wastegate hole to be 10mm smaller than on the original one so must be a copy exhaust housing i bought, the original wastegate hole is 25mm and the new one 15mm So i got my die grinder out and done a bit of self porting to make the hole the same size as the old one so as to give the exhaust gas a bigger surface area to push on the penny which in theory should open easier thus eliminating the boost spike ( hopefully ) , got the turbo back on after work today but not finished yet as have to fit a caliper to the wife's car ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ, will update tomorrow when i finish the job and have a wee blast along the road ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  23. Oooo shiney bits, nice me like ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  24. Nah not the wagon matey just the saloon, I'll keep an eye out for you aswell, normally take the coast road from rosyth along to kincardine as i hate that M9 it has to be one of the most boring roads in scotland and the coast road a bit more fun in the scoob ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
