Funny you should mention that, I won a set yesterday for £51... A saving of around £40-50 I believe.

So when I get the new leads, painted rocker covers and polished inlent manifold... I can do the swap in one day. Might wait until I sort out a 65mm throttle body though. :)

Checked the plug wells last week, and the rear right one is getting pretty bad... I'm using a lot of oil, probably topping it of with around half a lt (or more) a month.. and it's all down to the rocker covers. :(

A "partial" gasket set (manifolds and seals) is about £35 + vat

A "FULL" engine gasket set... are you sitting down???











£445 inc vat.. about $775 :( now tell us we don't get ripped off in the UK })

Torque wrench? What's that? I prefer the "tight enough" method. :)







Okay, maybe not for head bolts, but for VCGs and IM bolts/nuts it works fine. ;)

Now looking at Johns post about how much these things "really" cost.
Would it be advisable for me to soursce one of these nice cheap sets in my quest to sort out the oil useage.

Since there are no visable leaks and I only seem to get smoke when the engine is cold, my next attempt at solving the issue will probably be the valve seals... are they in there anywhere???

Gav.. no bolts, just the rubber seals, O rings, and gaskets..

Russ, Yes, comes with valve seals.. but for £445 are you joking !
The cheap one Gav got, has them as well..
