well 159 is back in the land of the living after it got "2 lived", which may as well be a technical term for exploding diff's and general gearbox failure... anyway, it's back up and running and testing his completely standard Megane engine and I have to admit I'm WELL impressed! It's on standard cams, head, ecu etc etc and only has panel filter, decat and cat back yet it goes like **** and that was with 3 of us in it... think this one deffo has some serious potential!

so add gasket set and cams to 205 an thats wot its cost me.

125 :D Bargain. Well done.. always good to get a decent engine. Always the rebuilds that cost the money.. so getting an engine that doesn't need one is awesome.

Get some vids up :)

(I've got my own warm and fully lit garage to play in now at my new house, so could be time to play with a spare engine if I can pick one up for reasonable cost :) )
