So thanks to advice from members on here i got the car and have it going alot better than the first time i drove it. its like a totally different car. i honestly would not have bought a 2.8 if it wasn't for some of the things i had read on this site so thanks everyone.

So far 30mm spacers long shocks (i like drop out, not hieght) whinch bar, ipf lights, uhf, tint, chopped out the mufflers and went 2.5inch a very cheap option and great sound, full service, wheel bearings,glow plugs, rocker gasket, blocked egr, pulled the butterfly out etc etc and will keep growing. my wife said great here we go again!

changed the viscous hub on the fan today, what a difference. no more fan roar and engine revs freely.
im loving my 2,8 so far.

loved it, put a boost gauge in this morning too so that was interesting watching how it was boosting.
