  1. I know everybody seems to send their turbo's to a well known Northampton based re manufacturer. Well i have just got mine back from a company who have done a wonderful job. Reco Turbo based in Thorne near Doncaster, have a brilliant set up, and the owner , Mr Omar, was only too happy, to take me through the whole factory, showing me the equipment they use for overhaul, and set up. They have an amazing set up, and i have never seen so many turbo's in one place before. I have now picked them up, and am well impressed with the standard of finish, and attention to detail. I have taken pictures, but they are'nt great, as they are both in sealed bags , which i don't want to open until i'm ready to fit them. Just thought i'd post this to let you all know there is a good alternative out there. Rob
  2. I wouldn't mind a set Barry, i have my engine out at the moment, and like you, have to have my turbo's reworked, as well as renew the piping assembly. Unlike you however, i am carrying out the work at a much slower pace. A week in the garage removing the engine, was traded off against redecorating the sitting room. I'm sure you know what i'd rather be doing!!!!!!! Car's only done 15 k, and never been out in the rain in mine, or previous owners custody, yet turbo's quite badly corroded, thankfully, though, all bolts came out relatively easy during removal, and it's had stainless manifold studs fitted at some point, so no need to endure the pain of drilling and heli-coiling so far. I also appreciate the frustration of parts supply, i'm still waiting on part's i ordered from a well known Lotus Specialist ,(in the North West) in February. Luckily they ain't holding the job up. Best Regards Rob
  3. I'm sure i read somewhere, that children under ten years of age in America. Have been responsible for more deaths by shooting in the last ten years , than terrorists!!!!!!! Apparently , things like Mom's so cute pink pistol, has been found by inquisitive little fingers, and thought to be a toy. It has then been used to shoot a sibling, parent or friend.
  4. Seen a nice Azure Blue Esprit, possibly a V8 , with LOT in reg number. Near Leconfield in East Yorkshire.
  5. Nice One Alan, That's another very useful piece of info that your endeavors have turned up. Thanks for sharing this with us all. Robbie
  6. Nice Car Graham, I remember picking mine up and having to drive it home up the M1 in the rain. I hadn't driven one before. And having read a post by a guy who crashed his, on the way home from buying it. I was terrified of doing the same, so there i was ,sat in the slow lane of the M1 at 40 mph grinning from ear to ear. !!!!!!!
