Ok got a call from the garage . Cost £160. He says engine is fine?? Even thought it failed compression but you never know. He changed everything I changed again but he also changed a fuel injector and lambda sensor. Going to collect tommorow and get back to you. But having ran all the tests myself I come to a conclusion of piston rings. Don't wanna be wasting 160 on parts that are not required. 160 for the sensor, injector, ht leads, coil pack and spark plugs.

£160 for ALL those parts? Doesn't make sense to me

Only an original coil pack costs already approximately 125 pounds.

Good quality and reliable lambda sensors are over £100 quid alone, an injector? Well second hand a set is probably £40 and I wouldn't even want to know what one is new!

Go to the garage and ask then to explain what they have done and why. Inspect the car yourself and then ask why the compression was low and have they tested it again after the repairs..

Still thinking about the st engine. JW you think it's gonna be ok. I have the issue of having a ST engine but just abs dds, whereas a actual st has the extra st I'm thinking it might just be fine.

They say the engine is fine so I would expect the to do a compression test. I'll have to check. They drove it and it's a good they say. Any prob just take it back to them.

If in any doubt why not ask for a drive in it first before you hand over any money

Got off phone to insurance company. This is funny. To change my engine etc to ST I only pay £1333.77. If I actually brought a ST - 3 I would be paying £5874.
So I pay less to just change my car to st. They said it's because if they think you look after your car then you are less risk. So what does everyone say? ST or real st. Still have not picked up car yet.

It works. It's drives smooooth feels like It's better. But he said use engine restorer from restore to help make the car perform better. Using supermarket oil and that stuff then after 1000 miles go back to castrol oil and car should be better.
