Over the next couple of years, i fitted a goose exhaust, ARC topmount, OZ alloys, did the 1 bar loop and did a few other minor changes. Unfortunately mid 2010 i had a ringland fail and damage the block and found the turbo was knackered:
So thanks to Bob i had a forged engine built, got a new bb turbo and did a a few more tweaks before putting it all back together.
Early 2012 opted to have nistune fitted and get a forge actuator. Made 255hp and 264lbft:
Current spec is:
87mm JE forge pistons - block bored to each piston
All ACL bearings used
HKS 264 cams
1.5mm Cosworth h/g
P+P head c/w 3 angle valves seats, matched combustion chambers
Apexi induction kit
Mildly ported standard exhaust manifold
GT2560 - currently running 1.1bar(but backs off to 0.8bar @ high rpm); eventually 1.2bar...
Full 3" exhaust system
Air con removed
Front sparco strutbrace
Rear GAB strutbrace
Got a few more bits to fit over winter/next year, so will keep updated...
