Dreading the "To Do" on the SVT... need pointers...

Well, the mileage on the SVT is getting up there, just hit 91,000m, so, gotta start thinking about the To Do list, mainly a Timing belt.

I'm absolutely dreading the timing belt job. Too many horror stories on here about doing the job, then having to take it all apart again to reset the cams. I'm dreading the job so much, I've even considered finding an SVT dealer to do it,(and I hate taking my cars anywhere).

Other than that, it also needs the tstat housing replaced, thats gonna be a mess. Also the P1518 code for the intake sounds like its going to be annoying.

Other than that. Great car. lol
