hi mate u say you bought the timing belt and tensioner off fensport, but since your changing the cam belt you should also change the 3 idlers which they dont have at Fensport. These idlers are just some stupid pulley that the cambelt goes round. Mine is at da garage at da moment doing just the same.

AS for the wind deflectors try these
