yeah to make it move again lol! then i have a remap chip put that on see where that gets me, its running 111.3 bhp at the wheels which isn't to bad considering its near enough stock, but in the long run i want to rebuild from ground up completely strip it and rebuild hopefully with a nice turbo engine!!! but i think im in it for the long haul coz i got the swift bug bad lol.

Well seeing as cambelt snapped it is likely u will need new valves. If i were you i'd get the head Ported and polished now as its got to be taken off.

i haven't had a look yet but im hoping/praying everything is ok inside i know little to nothing about how engines work but i was literally under 2000 rpm when it snapped and it didn't go with a bang so im hoping i can get away with re timing and changing the belt as money is an issue atm due to being made redundant but if not i think your right thats what i would do if i had to take the head off.
