Not sure to be honest..

It only done 500 miles so far on new rebuild, then its off for a 4.4 COP conversion, 3" MAF ,750cc injectors fitting and a full remap.

Im hoping to get 400bhp as the turbo was made by AET based on K24 K26. Its been ported and been told it should get me to 450 so there should be a bit of headroom. AET who built it do race builds so they know their stuff !

I used to do quality audits on AET on behalf of the MoD - they're a very good outfit. It used to be run/owned by the current owner's father, a guy called Tony Taylor (hence AET). He was a stickler for detail and a really nice guy. Haven't had any dealings with the son/current owner but if he is anything like his father...
