How do you know it's out of sparks?

taken the spark plugs out and turned it over with them on the rocker cover, they should still spark, not sure if its earthing, i didnt remove any of the earthing wires tho. tried old spark plugs as well but still no joy, just having to remove possiblity 1 by 1

Elliott, you have had your car in bits, to fit your turbo, you must go over what you have done, taken off, put back over and over again mate. sit down have a cup of tea, then go over everthing again :D

Don't think you will get a good earth on the rocker cover because of the gasket but could be wrong.

Were the plugs wet or dry and did they smell of petrol?

Are you getting a voltage to the coil pack itself?

Not sure given up for today getting a mate to come round with some better equipment to see where the voltage actaully stops,

Thought it might actually run today :(

Have you checked through the OBDII if there is anything wrong ? I have seen on the main thread you destroyed the lambda sensor. If one of the manifold sensor is broken, it will not start, it did it on mine

Prob a silly suggestion but can be easily overlooked....

Do you have an alarm system with a seperate immobiliser. Depending on what system and who fitted it, some will cut out the spark to immobilise the car.

all standard kit in there mate as flux said getting a new one wouldnt change my insurence price
