    You may look into the top of cylinders using a bore scope...many garages has it or you may buy it on amazon for 30GBP
    At least Wiseco top shape is different than stock or remove oil sump during the oil change to take a look, rods will be easy to spot.

    Is that the actual hybrid turbo? Can you not get the one it’s got made to a hybrid? I don’t know to much about cars. Plus that can take 10 weeks to come

    Yes, that is an actual Astra hybrid turbo.

    Hybrid is the stock turbo that has been modified to make more power.

    At what power figure would you all recommend forging pistons and rods out of interest?
