I need another 480 Turbo in my life!

I've been away for a bit lol, but I come to the point where I want another 480 Turbo! I used to own a black manual turbo about 2 years ago :D and now I've got a serious itch for another one :wink: Currently I've got a Ford Sierra 2.0i (handy for some sideways action) and a VW Taro (a re-badged Toyot...

Thinking about a turbo - it's all your fault, mind you, saw a black XR4i the other day...........
I curse the day I ever sold my red one :cryhard: Granted it did 18 mpg and was not mentally fast, but I felt like the dog bollox behind the wheel!

Dont know you would probably need to get universal sub-frames though and do a bit of bodging!

I've got some front Recaros from a 2.8i capri (which where fitted in to my mk4 escort) at my mate house. Might give him a call and try and get them in my 480! Recaros are the best seats ever ;)

I'd go with the old - 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' Rob! Stu. Think thats the best plan, you aint got a lambda sensor so why both with it! Narrow band lambda sensor like on the 480 are there to make sure the mixture is correct so the cat does its job. For the cat to work properly the mixture ha...

Just because it has the plug for the lambda sensor, might not mean its just plug n play you might need a different ecu? If the emissions are bad fitting a cat would not cure it instantly. If you pre 92 car keeps failing on emissions I would say there something else not right! My metro fail emissions...
