Cheers guys yeah it's all running sweet as now..

It was blowing a little smoke only on idle and back off not when u hold the throttle on and it had me stumped till i checked the oil and found i over filled the oil a 1L or so. Came to a conclusion that the turbo it's self was draining due to the fact the return line would hold oil over night and sump was too full.

So drained some oil and doesn't blow smoke anymore when idling etc not sure if does when driving or not.

Next thing is too find out how to tell if ya engine is nice strong and healthy or tired and should lower the boot before things break.

Cheers

Rick.

I have no idea how much i want for at this stage as it owes me a heap

I couldn't swap for a VL becuase i would buy GU Patrol if i sold it.

Thanks for the interest mate..

I personally didn't think it would even attract attention....
