    Cambelt Change

    well took the bull by the horns and did the cambelt and aux belts today no real problems but a hell of a lot of stuff to take of. but i reckon i could probably do it in half the time next time just takes a lot of patience and plenty of tea. and all of a sudden that little voice in the back of my head saying cam belt due seems to have disappeared not a hard job just long thats all

    well finally sorted the problem it was the TURBO I'm not going to go into all the details but turns out the guy who rebuilds them was an idiot and after the 3rd i demanded a refund and had it rebuilt by an excellent company in lancashire top job by proper engineers my faith in toyota has been restored

    will it be ok to just run it with no exhaust at all all you will see is exhaust impeller

    is the exhaust that bolts to the turbo (the big round one) a cat if so this could be restricting exhaust gases it had oil go through it when old turbo failed
