    thinking about going bt route

    ok so im a power freak and well i want more power so bt would be a good option right ?
    what would be the best turbo to go for ?
    how bigcan i go before upgrading engine internals?
    for the rods getting changed do you have to strip engin to pieces or is there some way of slippin them in from the head ????

    ok mate..ill consider buying it from you, doubt ill go big turbo anytime soon !

    if i remeber rightly i think i saw something on the big turbo page about what has go ball bearings, think it was like if it started had an R or S in it, then it was ball bearing, wouldnt you need a bigger manifold ? engine internals need to be upgrade if going above the 325bhp backdraft kit, thats another 1.5k for that but they do discounts if bought with another turbo kit.
