Lucky enough I live in the sticks and my mates renting a house with a big garage out the back. Got this one. http://www.adverts.ie/power-tools/cl...mment_40843249

Came with 2 masks and a big bottle full of C02 and nitrogen. I think it's for beer. Has a guiness label on it. Need to get a regulator for it to hook it up. Think it should be OK, think I heard my mate say his da uses 95% Co2 5% N for something . Haven't looked into it yet. 70 quid all in wasn't bad even with 40 for diesel on top.

Have a mk1 gt myself which has a good bit done to the engine, but like yourself I wouldnt mind a standard engine dropped back into her as replacing parts is a pain in my a**. A few months ago I had to spend 200 euro to replace a manifold gasket just because my manifold and inlets are bored out. These gaskets are like 7 euro from toyota if you havent had any work done on the engine. Felt like jumping off a cliff haha
