UK guys are so lucky to get 4-Mo 2.8L 24v cars!!!!!
The bottom end is now a 2.9L with Wossner rods and pistons, balanced crank, etc. The head has a mild port with 1mm oversize Ferrea Super-alloy valves and an INA spring and titanium retainer kit.
I read your other thread, your car will be mental, 500+bhp @1 bar boost? weapon.

Thanks guys! I can't wait to start it.
chaffe, the cooler is mounted to the gearbox and there will be a small flexible mounting point onto the strut tower.
I can't wait to see this thing man! It looks amazing.
I think a ride trade is in order that way we can get 1st hand back-to-back experience on how different the powerbands feel from the twins to the big single turbo in my car
The chargecooler will move with the engine and trans. There may be a small attachment point to the bay, but that will be made so that it allows for the movement.
what else has to be done. like what is on your to do list still. i am just completing a semi wire tuck and deleted a few things like sai, evap, and pcv is routed to a catch can. i'm only N/A and with all this room in the bay make forced induction verrrrwy veerrrrwwy temmpting. especially after seeing the craftsmanship in your build. well done man. are you gonna be tracking the car? or is this purely show and daily driven fun?
Living fast in the the slow lane. Still have a vw though. Sometimes that's just enough
Finally, it runs!!!!
That buzzing is the Aeromotive fuel pump.
