Hi guys, Thought I should update with my current situation, As you may remember I purchased a Black PH1 Gti-r from Joe P, Who I believe is a member on here and owns a white R now.

Unfortunately after only a week of ownership the engine let go and is now out the car having a full rebuild and reconditioned/new gearbox. Annoyingly I paid a garage £500 to re shim the head and on inspection he just removed the shims.  Crying or Very sad But once the block and head have been aqua blasted the build will begin. I was pretty pissed off but least its given me a project and It wont be coming back on the road until the shell is finished and bigger brakes fitted also.

Its going to be a slow project due to finances and time, my mates company Kernpoint will be building it as he has all the machining facilities through his work to do it properly.

Luckily the HKS pistons were not damaged and have been crack tested.

The shell will have complete overhaul whilst the lumps out and respray too. When Joe owned it before hes spent loads of money on it so its got most things, Just all need bringing together to make it.

Not after Mad power but want a reliable 400bhp, Mainly going to be used for track days and some road at weekends for shows etc.

Will update once the engine is being reassembled in the next few weeks. Will be looking for someone to rebuild my gearbox if anyone can get in contact.

few pics:









cheers

When I bought the car the passenger door was stuck shut and couldn't be opened from the inside or outside. I'm sure iv seen threads before about the mechanism or spring breaking inside the handle but was going to attempt at the weekend to get it open and repaired/replaced but wanted some advice on what I need to do.

Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
