  MOT -
passed!! woo hoo Mucho happiness. Suppose I'd better wash it this weekend again. Bought some polish to get it cleaned when I was at the caravan, never stayed dry enough to even think about doing it.

  a wee trip away -
indeedy I decided a trip oop North to the parents caravan was in order just to clean the cobwebs out of me hair. It rained pretty much non stop but I just chilled and had a very relaxing time. I've included some pics below, don't be fooled it was cold and wet lol. Click on any of the pics to be taken to the main pic page.

  boost pipes -
tightened previously and now I'm getting 15psi a whole 1krpm sooner. Car feels a wee bitty quicker lol. Shame I never thought of checking that before. Weather is the usual rubbish so no real driving fun to be had. More's the pity.

I am however very happy the car is behaving as it should. Roll on next summer....

  boost pipes -
I have tightened up a couple that tbh were not tight enough but it's always a worry when tightening around an ali pipe. Too much pressure and er cracko! Can't be bothered to drive the car today but will check it weekend. Back to back testing with another car being done then too.

  aww balls -
most of Monday spent at the garage trying to discover what's up with the car. No joy, tried a few things but nothing really made any changes. No error codes, ignition timing and cam timing spot on. Next stop, compression check (though no mayo on recent oil change) and check the plugs <- could it be that simple?

Also noticed the boost is taking a bit to come on song so going to check all pipework tomorrow if the weather stays good.

Some thieving pikey tried to steal the car last week, lucky they didn't damage too much but it does make me wonder whether I'd be happy if it got nicked. I guess only if I get to kill the fecker that tries it, yeah that would do it.

Sump pan, well specifically the No2 Oil Pan Assembly is leaking quite bad, it's also er flexing so that's needing changed ASAP. That and oil stains under the car look bad. Hopefully be sourcing a 2ndhand one from the MR2 site as Toyota want silly money for it.

  oh boy -
car got serviced yesterday and most things are ok. Porus sump which is a pain but a common fault. Seized alternator adjustment bolt, nice one. A few other minor things but nothing serious.

Did a rolling road after it, er pish! Really bad power figures but they do back up what I was feeling on the road. Things to do, check the compression on the engine, check cam timing then check ignition timing. Then pray :(
