Thats whats going to happen hopefully by the start of next show season, most of the trick parts i already have. Then as soon as its out of its warranty, theres a GT30 on a primary designs manifold and a CHD worked cylinder head going to be bolted on. Running at about a bar of boost so that it doesnt crack the liners, as they are a bit chocolate.
welcome to tc mate, nice car

i was saying in another post that the best coulor for a st is orange
no bother,

theres a guy over on the next block that had a blue 1, supposidly its running at 330bhp
im mates with his dad, he told me he got the turbo upgraded and chipped

dont know for certain is this true, but id like to see what your 1 is throwing out after them modds you have planned

anyway, i say to all members and il say it to you

keep it between the hedges mate
most likely be a wolf car, im yet to see one with an reworked standard turbo pull over 310bhp. But its a lot more torquey. with the forthcoming mods before the gt30 it should hit approx 290-300 and capable of 0-60 in about 5.3-5.5 secs.

With the GT30 and the mapping were looking at we reckon we are going to achieve around 340-360 bhp while running under stage 1 level boost.
