A new injector can be had for £50 delivered on Ebay

http://search.ebay.co.uk/search/sear...Bravo+Injector
A standard exhaust cat back can cost you around £100 from www.buypartsby.co.uk. Aftermarket exhausts maybe cheaper.

Re: bravo work

bad earth is probably the main earth strap from gearbox to chassis, although a battery that hasnt been used for 2 years will definatgely need replacing no matter how many times you try to charge it. also clean & grease the battery terminals.

a scrapyard injector costs 5, its very easy to do yourself. the procedure is described in detail in several previous threads, so is the method for diagnosing injectors using a umltimeter. its a very very very very common problem on the 1.6

Re: bravo work

cool, i have tried a couple of breakers and scrapyards most wont break the engines to let me get injectors

even now the car is driving me nuts, trying to clean it all after 2 years of sitting there, lol
and trying to get standard exhaust is being a nightmare as well.
