ye got it done there a few months back, all the lads are bang on up there! so many lovely cars. they are a bit on the pricey side but are supposed to be very good at what they do, and they give a year garantee on any engine builds

pricey enough, but i've heard yer man 'gav' on loc is havin serious bother 'n' headaches at the minute with his conversion, it took him a long time to get it done, don't get me wrong!! fair play to him!!! the car looks mental :)

but i havn't really got the time(or tbf knowledge) to go at it myself!! whereas EEC can have it done and dusted in 6-8 weeks

yes but you'd alway get around about price before work is started.

still discussing the price 4 labour! have most of the parts needed bar the mounts and turbo, they'll fabrricate alot of the parts themselves (propshaft, mounts, etc..)
heres a rough idea what i'm out already
engine €1200/1500, gearbox lucky to get 1 for under €2500, suspension €1200, brakes (s/h evo brembo's) €600, digital speedo €1400 (it costs €1100 to wire the original one)
add to that the price of a turbo and ecu/boost controller.... its enough to give your bank manager nightmares :lol:
