Hey Marco,

I'd be satisfied with around 350bhp (plus/minus). At the end of the day I would be after a strong engine that is capable of more than I set as output.

I would look for a fmic and a gt28 rs turbo and a 3" down pipe then go see flea again!

Oh and a boost controller!!!

That should do the trick!

Then start saving for the re-build!
Have you down a compression test to check the engine?

I think your nuts selling the car for as little as you are, as you say your essentially giving the car away for £100 minus work and bills over 6 months. If you don't need the money. Find some storage and just mothball it for a few years
