All the examples that were £3k- 5k cheaper either had rust or weren't as well looked after, obviously at the time I wasn't to foresee the leaks in compression and paying over the odds didn't seem so bad.

Also another big selling point for me for the full race spec Ex-Tec suspension that I've not seen any other Evo running, the handling just blew all the others out the park, the thing is on rails!

I suppose the money I got back from Wynford towards the rebuild was probably the money I overpaid - oh well f**k it, sh*t happens, you win some you lose some!

If Iím not mistaken Mark was one of last ones to deal with ExeTC suspension, even more reason to stick with him

I remember this car when a previous MLR member owned it, it was loved so enjoy it...

I met Mark for the first time at the beginning of the month when I took my car to him to help resolve a misfire issue that's plagued it for about 2 years. He found the fault and cured it within about 15mins, actually a very simple fix that an aforementioned tuner in this thread missed, costing me several visits and a few quid with no cure.

Spent a good few hours with Mark just chatting, he's a very knowledgeable and interesting guy and certainly knows his onions. He'll now be my go to guy for evo work.
