[quote="DucatiRob"]Phil, sorry to hear it seems worse than first appeared, but great that you are seeing all the positives Thumb Thumb

Hartech are a fantastic outfit! Having had so many bad experiences with other so called experts and specialists, cars and bikes, I am always cautious about dealing with anyone in the motor trade, but I can honestly say the service from Hartech when they rebuilt my engine was first class, they could not have done any more, which, when you're a bit sick because your P&J is knackered is what you need! Comms were great throughout and Grant spent more than two hours with me when I dropped the car off, taking me through the whole process, the options and an in-depth tour of their facility, which meant a lot to me!

Mine is a Gen1, but since the rebuild the engine seems to get better and better the more it's run in, smoother and stronger! So now, although the cost hurt at the time, I feel it was worth every penny Thumb Thumb

The full Cargraphic will sound amazing Mr. Green Thumb Thumb

Thanks Rob , I am looking forward to getting it back and as you have found , it doesnt take long driving them to get over the build cost . Grin Thumb

Just a quick update. Baz confirmed parts are on the way the cargraphic cats and headers are already with them, so the build should start in the next week or so. Grin Thumb

Hi phil , good news regarding the rebuild Thumb in time for spring hopefully mate.

Thanks for the replies gents. Not sure how long before I get it back seems to depend on when the block arrives from Germany. ideally while it’s oooop norf I can tie in a chip wizards remap as it seems he’s the man when it come to getting the best map written for these cars when modded. I am worried about running it in as I don’t really drive like miss daisy so might have to employ a running in assistant “ must have driving miss daisy “ listed as experience. And never watched fast and furious Grin depending on timing etc may be up for the breakfast in Brighton run or fast stroll Thumb

Bagsy me!

I’m definitely the man for that job. Never speed, me. Just a leisurely 65 down the middle lane. Promise. Scouts honour. Thumb

Jimbo you do not meet the required job spec for the following reasons
A. You were a passenger in Fareds 1200 bhp 996 turbo that while overtaking me at 100mph+ did a wheel spin.
B. While I was doing 130+ mph ( on a stretch of private road) on the way back from Porsche on the prom you were again a passenger this time in Steves 997 GT3 that overtook me and vanished into the distance over a blind hill
C. You are having a cayman LS3 500 bhp built as I type this.

Trust me miss daisy you are not Grin and enjoying a intermate evening in the past with miss daisy also doesn’t count as driving miss daisy so don’t try and use that one either Floor
