I didnt do it to cause offence, the advert gave me a bad feeling and i attempted to clarify certain issues. My main ussue was about a MIT exhaust, nice to see its corrected, as MIT make exhausts for motorbikes my mate has informed me. I was ****** you wouldnt clarify the type, I was seriously interested in the project as i love supercharged cars, but the answers were so vague that i just had a bad feeling of distrust. I am glad you cam on to clarify things and lots of respect to you as alot wouldnt. There are so many shisters on ebay that if a dodgey or too good to be true advert appears its hard not to question it, it helps others who like us love these cars for picking a lemon or incorrectly describled vehicle. As i said i know of several companies that would probably sort the SC issues, failing that as its a centrigugal SC which is very much a belt driven turbo design, you could talk to some turbo specialists.
Once again i ment no offence to you personally i was trying to cler up some bad feelings i had about the ad, your lack of straight answers merely made me feel more distrustful.
Just to say also Martin, I contacted many companies in the UK (whom i would have loved to deal with) and all of them didnt want to know. In hindsight, i wishes i had came onto a forum and asked around.
My option of having it repaired by a company in the US was the BIGGEST mistake i have ever made. I have around 60 emails back and forth from the company coming up with every excuse under the sun, like the company he had made the new gears went out of business, the new ones didnt fit, then how he was off with a sporting injury. If i had my time again i would have bought another one or even a new one.
There comes a time when enough is enough, so i'm passing the baton on, and a ****** good one at that! lol
I'm sorry Scott, i didnt mean to come across as nasty. The guy you might want to talk too is 2strokecorkie on here, he has made hybrid turbos for the TDCI's and as the c-1 is very much like a turbo he might be able to help you.
