    you should have left the car pissing oil and told them pirates it was a non runner,probably would have saved you the price of some of the bits? they charged my mates bird over a grand to clear a hen house of a pug 306!

    I wouldn't really bother fitting coil on plugs unless the olds leads or coil-packs are in shite as there is no real gain otherwise from doing it other than if you want the engine bay to look a little tidier.
    Prick of a job then too to change plugs compared to having HT leads.

    Yeah, suppose if they are there you may as well if they'll just be gathering dust.

    Can you not fit the cams yourself? Isn't too hard to change them.
