    Default Dear my Diary..CC's Siggy

    Just thought I'd start a update thread on my fixer upper lol. Used to own a Vectra Sri years ago and every car since then I just missed the veccy so as I went for a battered signum this time.. plan was to get a cheap one and fix it up so I know everything is done rather than spend out be broke and big problems occur. So here's my £450 signum that had £500 UK clutch fitted the day of purchase.

    Quick update. Doing my inlet manifold in a week or two when everything is ready.. usually only buy vx parts but gsf had 60% off lol so couldn't turn it down, Just bought:
    Cam belt
    Aux belt
    Water pump
    Manifold gadget
    Egr & egr cooler delete kit

    Hopfully get it all done in one dday. Here's pick of my inlet manifold cleaned.. once with Mr muscle oven cleaner and jet wash (messy) then used lemon fairy liquid and Mr muscle Brillo pads who's was very effective!



    Ps. Exhaust fumes should smell like lemon now
