What M16A Swift engine are you going to use?
Noticed there are a few versions of it developed over the years.

Anything else except the rods that you think could not handle boost?
I'm thinking about a little bit less than 25 PSI now, maybe more like 1 Bar or just above. :)

I have a 2008 SSS VVT......very tidy inside these engines......just pistons and rods for me......can't see anything else that looks weak.

It's been bored to 78.5mm which gives me 1600cc.....up from 1586 standard.....I doubt the turbo has enough flow potential to get much over 18psi with the extra cc's.

Got to find a load of cash for cruise control and major transmission stuff soon

Did I read it right? You've re-launched body-kit production?
Any plan to go commercial on that? Any ideas about the ERP?

I'm still interested in getting one (though probably more likely next year)... or maybe a set of kits like that - I think I'd be able to gather a group of potential buyers here in Poland.

I think they'll just scape in around £450.....design has changed slightly and they're a little wider so -30 off-set wheels required.
