The Punto is back!

Well after many a month of being off the road, the Punto finally came back on the road today.

Back in May, I took her off the road because she was starting to smoke quite a bit.

Took the head off and found 3 large cracks in it. Also found that the bearings in the turbo were shot.

so after a lot of saving, i finally bought a head and a turbo and fitted them over the weekend.

All the pics I took can be found here http://www.puntosports.co.uk/photopost/sho...ery.php?cat=652

Here are just a few of the pics I took.

Re: The Punto is back!

LOL I doubt it.

Had to wait ages for Fiat and other places to send me parts.

I only really started on the engine last wednesday. I had to wait 3 months for the new cylinder head and turbo.

Weren't you after a cylinder head for it?

Glad to see you've got it running again.
