Oh sh*t.. its sort of whiteish/blue...

Hmm.. Theres a white 88 for sale not to far from me - asking price is less
than GBP6k - a drastic solution but it would give me something more powerful
(and classy) than the Metro to drive until I get this one fixed. But can I
really justify three of these cars?

As for an air leak, this will be a leak into the engine via a seal or a shot
breather hose rather than in the induction side? I know that the air dome to
turbo hose is on its last legs but I assume that if this was at fault
clamping the breather wouldn't have had any effect.
