    Pretty sure @Steve used these guys to fix the vanos on his Evo.

    It'll be in his project thread

    I have heard a few bad words regarding Mr Vanos, however, do not have any personal experience with them.

    His work is excellent. The only faults with him are that he can be difficult to get hold of.

    Steve, I was only putting across what I had heard.. Therefore your recommendation is better to the original poster than mine.

    I know mate, it wasnt meant to sound like that. Its just the guy has had a few slatings on other forums for things that were out of his control and didnt get the opportunity to defend himself
