i take it you experienced the boost settings after the car passed MOT, you obtained insurance, and got it taxed?

Re: mk2 uno turbo

Crikey, not seen one of those on the roads for years!

All things considered that's not a bad MOT result as most of that lot is an easy DIY fix.

Far better than soluble bodywork and collapsed suspension.

Should be good fun when it's back and working as it should do.

Didn;t you read the title?

It's an Uno lol

Oh Beau if you haven't already disconnect the boost switch which is on the top left hand side of the engine and just tap it over and fit a bleed valve to it and give it a few twists



Above may/will cause detonation of engine
