haha rite on tha money, thought id give one a try, just get me a second hand one i think.

anybody have some knowledge on the pcv system on these windsors( i think thats what im havin a problem with, the little black fitting on the bak of the lower intake). all fine when i drive no boost even when under 5psi, soon as i take it past 5 it blows that out and spits bit of all in me clean engine bay :evil:

Sounds like your crankcase is pressurising. Check your pcv valve isn't stuffed. If it's OK then do a leakdown test

As stated, crankcase is pressurising. With 300+ thousand kms and boost, id say those rings are getting alot of blow by.
