      UK guys are so lucky to get 4-Mo 2.8L 24v cars!!!!!

      I'm jealous.

      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.

      Yeah its a far cheaper alternative to an R32, once turboed much quicker too!
      I read your other thread, your car will be mental, 500+bhp @1 bar boost? weapon.
      here is a pic of my car today, just piped up the water and pump for chargecooler, quite a bit of tuning to do now!

      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

      Each turbo is rated for up to 300hp, so I figure 400hp daily and 500+ on the dyno would be safe estimates... Again, I'm guessing.

      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?

      I'd love to track the car, but I have to learn how to drive on a track first! I plan on dailying the car, except for the winter.

      There's a heim joint attaching the charge cooler to the transmission via a brace that Tyrolsport Greg made. There are some pictures of the brace and joint earlier in the thread.

      I missed your post! This is a good idea. In sure the powerbands are quite different.
