The news from Roger was not good, basically I had left it to long so the Coupe has gone to meet it’s maker. Floor rotten by jacking points, both sills and that’s before the mechanical work.

I'm out of date on the turbo's available now, so unable to comment on that. Injectors you would probably want to look around the 600-750cc for them, but you will need to do research into this and how much head room you want, but ideally you do not want to be maxing out the injectors at your power level. You will also need to consider if you keep the standard ECU, who will remap it as the injectors will need to be fitted when being mapped.

Well I assume you mean at full capacity. They rarely get up to 3.5kw.

In summer we can get 25kwh a day. But obviously much lower in winter. So 2.5kwh a day on average could be right.

That works out to be 2.5 hours per day of sunlight in not-so-sunny sunny South Wales smile

We've got solar panels and we get on average 3200kw a year. That's a 3.5kw array of 14 panels (250watt each).

South facing roof too.

It was an 8 year payback based on feed in tarrif at the time, so was well worth doing.

Our surplus power during the day is fed into the hot water via immersion. So it all helps.

I just read an article on "The Net Zero House" in my monthly "The Chemical Engineer" magazine and for solar power (if that's what you have and they are not solar heating panels) it assumes an average panel area of 1.6 m² which can generate 300 W, so assuming that you have 6 panels and you receive the UK average of 4.5 hours per day, that's 6 x 300 x 4.5 x 365 / 1000 = around 3000 kWh per year. So you might export power during the day, and import at night, unless you have batteries to store the power?

If all goes according to plan (hahaha, this is 2021!), we should be moving shortly to a small, 7-year-old house that has solar panels on the roof. It's only about a 3mx3m area (I'm guessing), so not huge. They're on a more or less South-facing roof in Gloucestershire, so (very roughly) what kind of generation will that produce?
Also, what should I be looking for in terms of maintenance or potential costs?

just fitted new oil Cooler.

Its 1/3 bigger than original 16VT, ACC. to Setrab , Its rated for 170-230 bhp.
I mounted it with side outlets for best flow ( oil gets everywhere And utilise whole Cooler) and best air pocket prevention.
