Ive been running plenty of redx thru it to clean the cylinders up that with vpower you can see the pistons were starting to clean up

The oil filter had collapsed and dislocated from the cap so it's not been doing much for a while
The swirl flap bar was ticking ive changed the bar but still got the ticking must be the flaps are warn out
new fuel filter and fresh oil and filter dove it home 100 miles with out issue and fitting a real 82c thermostat from an astra g 2.2 makes the water temp real world on the vec c and not 105c rubbish with the factory stat

New front discs and pads went on thus night
Found the dust cover on the passenger caliper off so poped to piston out to check for pitted surface there was a little mark nothing serious but im going to have to get a new seal for it at some point :)
