Hi everybody,i bought Adam tyrrells swift turbo a few months back,nice guy,car is a cracker
i use it every weekend,last weekend it started acting up,it was boosting fine until after warming up it started misfiring
on closer inspection i found the fan was not coming on and half the ex manifold bolts loose or
missing,replaced all manifold bolts checked gasket tightened it up fitted a new thermostat switch
for the fan,brought her out,boosting fine/pulling good power:-then temp hits normal(midway)and
its like the ignition timing has retarded or plugs are breaking down! Any help folks
