Yes and yes.

His own T3 Bluestar is Subaru powered and he does a "drive in,drive out" service.

recently had a gearbox in again from a customer with a TSR plate and it had shagged the oil thrower again, we got the plate checked out and there were a number of issues with it, resolveable with a load more machine shop time but unless you know what you are doing and have access to proper measuring equipment you will struggle to get it properly centred
Simon doesn't have a web site he's old skool :lol:
