A new one isn't that dear!


What happens if you get stopped at a roadside emission check? Full MOT again, Sir, at your expense.

ATS said it would cost me around £150 but i dont really want to pay that for one when as soon as it comes out of the test station im gonna take it straight back off, will placing the cat convertor back on reduce the sound of my exhaust any or is it there just to reduce emissions

Major - I had huge trouble shifting the nuts and bolts on my Sterling exhaust this week. Until I decided to try the electric impact gun which whipped them off.

Still the best £10 I ever spent on tools..............

I bought my electric gun from Argos. It should have been £20 but there was a promotion on so it was just £9.95.

Halfords do them for £14.95 I think - and I know places like Machine Msart and Eurocarparts sell them too.

It makes short work of stiff wheel nuts, T series crankshaft bolts, exhaust nus and the like (but give them a good old oiling first). 230lbft of torque seems to do the trick.

Bob get yourself down to your local Motor parts store or AFL or Machinemart and get yourself some axel stands or ramps for about £30 a pair. I'd prefer the axle stands.
You'll get your moneys worth from 'em if you're akin to having a go at DIY mechanics.
