well, it has ventured out.. have done about 40 miles or so. Drives lovely even though i havent done the alignment yet.Driving characteristics have changed slightly with the gti ecu and 268 cam, not much happens below 2200rpm, then its pretty quick for a heavy lump. had a bit of an oil leak, turned out to be the cam oil seal. Had a spare so swapped that over, bit unusual for a new seal to leak, but it happened and it got sorted!
Took it up to Epsom Downs and took the agreed value pics for the insurance 😀
