My observation is,that as RRP have probably provided rebuilt engines for other diy fitters, and wondered wh...

Re: Confirmed hot start issue - gutted!

obviously,he would only consider an engine swap,when it has been determined that his own engine is useless,as i previously mentioned.

Re: Confirmed hot start issue - gutted!

David,there are one or two people on here atm,that are considering doing diy engine swaps. Why not read up a bit and see if this is a possibility,after all ,you clearly enjoy the car. What is the overall condition of the car? does it warrant a replacement engine? have you ruled out everything else? ...
