I now have it on the road & just finding out just what its like , first impressions are heaps of grunt . much better than the old Windsor , haven't done any fuel consumption figures yet but it can only be better than it was & just love the oomph !!

I'd be interested in seeing some pictures of the turbo engine installed.
