    Are you going to have words with Mr Trueluck? That plug and play kit sounds like you need to have previously worked on the space shuttle program to be able to adapt it to fit.

    Naaa, I rekon Rich has a plan to sell IHI turbos as a kit but a proper bolt on solution. (just a guess).

    Not knocking Jabba, but I expected a better fitting kit.

    Also Designa Dubs are doing a similar kit.

    Not as yet. Apparently with the BASIC (very simple) code it was pushing around 290bhp... Torque id expect to be around the same. To be honest, for now id rather the figures be a bit lower as there will be less transmission stress... When (not if!) the clutch goes, i'll be replacing the flywheel and getting a LSD one time too to make the most of it all being apart so need to save up... the later it goes the better!

    Im expecting around the 300bhp mark give or take a few...either way, should be well fun!

    Blimey, I am surprised the clutch is holding with that amount of power, espesially with all the runs they'll are doing on the dyno and the increased heat from not running on the road.

    I was worried about when I get but new turbo on and mapped, but I'll only be pushing 240bhp, so I'm not so worried now.

    Roll on this afternoon!!!

    True, very true. Be a good test for the traction control too.
