    Id avoid running it untill you get it checked over by a mechanic, might just be one of the usuall sensors, plugs, coils ect, do u have an air to fuel ratio meter in the car? Did it feel like it was deting or misfiring and where is the clunk noise coming from when u turn it over?

  8. I agree with gordon on this one, too much pish on scottish scoobies, Most of it should be in p/m as it only relates to a few and is hardly car club banter, Im not a stick in the mud and enjoy a bit of banter, but there is limits.

    Gearbox Removal

    Have you removed the shaft that holds the clutch fork in place? look on side of engine, small plug, think its a 10mm alen key, remove this and insert a long threaded bolt to pull shaft out, same thread as the ones in your cam belt cover, if using one of them, dont damage it if you need it again. when shaft out lift up fork to disengage from pressure release bearing. If you have already done the above then its just stuck on, work your way around the top of box where joined to block, with diferent size chisels. but be carfull.

    How far is too far?

    350 bhp is achievable on standard engine and gearbox, after that often the case of my car breaks engines and eats gearboxes, however 400bhp is possible on standard internals i believe
