Sean was the guinea-pig on this turbo,its a Garrett but slightly different on the turbines and porting.
Internally wastegated with no issues at all even at 1.8 bar.
Very smooth,will even get the power down in 2nd at 1.8bar shocked

The engines are Built by Barbz so there his secret.

Full story is i was all ways in to rx7s skylines etc but they was getting expensive to have a fast reilable one which i think they do?? confused So john rang me up and said he was a t donnington. So i went out in johns Le at donnington early last year and that was it i had to get a fast coupe. laugh So john told me what was what and what to have so he got me i touch with barbzs and the next week i had got his bros coupe which is a cracking coupe. Then john took me out in his coupe with the barbzs 483bhp 2.0l engine and that was it i wanted a 500bhp coupe. shocked So after alot a phone calls to barbzs and john we said that we would get a 2.0l built for me this later this year. But then a saved faster and told john 3weeks before spa that i want a plus or a black Le with the aim of 500bhp to take spa. So the first time in best part of ten years of me knowing john he went quite and said right leave it with me all ill keep you informed.

Barbzs and john are top blokes in there work. There aim is to give the customer what he wants and make sure they are happy with what they have spent there hard saved cash on. angel

The le is soild but needs abit of tlc on the body but its prefect for me at the minute. Its a sleeper.

John you went past the call of duty for me and past your working hours to get me to spa. beer

Barbzs what can i say but your engines are worlds apart from antything else out there on the market. yes
May be see you next year for a 2.4/2.5????

Ill keep it short but am that happy the coupe. I can not beleive how many supercars a S reg fait coupe could bet mind blowning!!!! driving

Well what can i say but a BIG massive thank to you john at midland car services for finding my le and for doing everything from cv joints to full on gaz coilovers etc.... and a BIG hand shake to the legend him self barbzs at torque italia for a stroming 2.0l engine which is mind blowing and still good on fuel. A big thank you to flea for doing a full on stage 6 map in short notice as every thing was last minute. bow

A massive thank to the forum you people are great and spa was amazing. To all of you i meet you are a brill bunch of car nutters and to the people i didnt meet theres more meets this year. thumb
