Back the fcuk up.

Did you just say, non-ironically, not-taking-the-piss-ically, "cherry flavour screenwash"?

What a world we live in.

It was right by the front door of Halfords and I needed screenwash.

But I can't for the life of me work out why you'd need cherry flavoured screenwash, or any flavoured screenwash other than screenwash flavoured screenwash.

It's certainly not to make it taste better, as I discovered during my siphoning activities whilst trying to get the washers to work on the camper.

I saw that in there the other day alongside Citrus flavour. Both were £1 more than normal screenwash, you flash bastard.

Excessively, artificially sweet for my liking with a background hint of something I didn't like.

Now I need flavoured screenwash you shits.

Something about the bearing on that bad side and intercourse with the Mayor of Bayswater's daughter.

Get a borescope/endoscope and have a look down the plug hole at the bores, or heads off - but you need to make sure the damage is only limited to the turbos.

How high was the boost?

Well, after doing fcuk all for 10 months, midland turbo are picking the turbos up on Monday. Estimated cost £400-1k

I still need to do that... Maybe this weekend.

And the boost was. Not that high... I don't have an exact number I don't think.

Absolutely. I've been struggling to motivate myself to deal with it, but having it stored elsewhere so I don't have to look at it every day combined with some other factors has meant I just haven't bothered.

Hopefully progress from here will be relatively brisk. Aside from the turbos, also on the to do list is EGT sensor upgrade and something suspension related so both ends run at the same height.

None on the body as I'm still garage-less at the mo (that will be rectified in the next few months). Got the engine finished though (thanks to Boosted)
