  2. It needs to be rematched through a nanocom or similar as just had mine done due to changing instrument pack Rob
  3. i used to run a ir qt1 in the workshop and it was epic!!!! was even better when i changed my air point to full 10mm fittings and hoses (inc gun) used to undo truck wheel nuts with ease (torqued up to 680nm then rusted on) but as said the compressor is the limiting factor Rob

  9. no they cant be sleeved but you can replace the liner very easily once the piston is out (no special tools reqd or anything) i would rebuild my own engine unless a known good second hand unit was available
  10. head bolts for the v6 are the same as the 4 cylinder k series both have the same construction type that said the v6 is less prone to hg failure
  11. kv6 head gaskets is a big job to do (as in lots of work because there is 2 heads!!) but is a fairly simple engine to work on hardest bit will be getting timing tools to time it all up right and dont turn it over with no heads on as the liners will lift off there seats if you need any advice give me a yell as have done loads of these being a ex mg rover dealer tech
  12. water is your friend here as brake fluid absorbs water
