          Looks very good, only the exhaust I do not like.
          The rims are great, which brand is it?

                the work was done by chris at regal and i must admit im not 100% sure if i like the rims or not yet was thinking about having the standard 1's black with polished iner spokes to be differant

                      What's you anticipated output with the turbo, rods and pistons? Not sure about the wheels for myself, but it is each to their own and if you change let us know so we can see.

                      Hope you enjoy the forum and have fun above all

                            once you get the rods and that in the worlds your oyster for mods.

                            i know them h section steel rods are good for around 600 brake and about 9-10000 rpm lol.

                            tbh i dont think there would be a need for better pistons though as the standard pistons are forged and have teflon coated skirts which will make em more than strong enough for about 350 bhp. i had my c20let pushing 350 bhp on standard pistons and they werent forged or coated (dunno how long it wouldve lasted though but it had some greif) i just lowered the compression by fitting a thicker cometic head gasket.

                            if you dont know what a c20let is its the previosu vaux turbo engine (calibra) basically the same block with a different head.

                            nice car though. looks kinda funky
