Major progress - motor out!

Woot! Engine is out and work has begun. Shortlist of work thats happening while the donk is out:

* Replace turbo
* Repair and clean engine bay
* Rebuild wastegate
* Reco wastegate pipe
* replace boost control
* Reco exhaust manifold
* New clutch friction plate
* New mid exhaust

Some interesting things were found in removing the engine, namely that the previous owner was a dodgy mofo. Exhaust manifold is holding on with three bolts where there should be eight, turbo outlet is all araldited up, fuel cut pressure switch is wired to ground... all bad stuff like that.
