I got my kit from an eBay seller in the UK. I’ll try and find the link. It was a best offer kind of deal and we eventually settled at £140, which included every gasket/seal as well as the metal turbo ones.

Is that new or refurbed Ben?

Looks very nice, it'd be a shame to use it and get it dirty..... :lol:
