    Ouch but at least your back on the road, $7k sounds fair for rebuild and fitting,,,I think lol

    Yeah this is the builder where we sourced roofys. Absolutely agree probly the beast option i reckon. Great bloke to deal with knows his stuff and a quality motor. Price wise very reasonable for end result.

    Haven't got the work done just yet. Wife needs surgery in a few months, so we need to hit into those savings if we're to go through with fixing the car. Trying to work out if we can 100% have the cash back before her surgery if we spend it.

    Cost didn't include remove/fit. That was done by another place that I paid $1500 for.

    Now you fit boost and EGT gauges along with the NADS and avoid the next one.
