I'm not believing that vid eather!
I'm prepared to admit I'm out of date lol
But I'm not able to just believe claims that are way above the norm,

Skip to about 50 seconds in on that vid. Dyno numbers are a bit abstract and hard to believe, but watching an 8 second quarter mile is pretty conclusive! 1400hp from a 2 litre B series.

Sorry to push your thread further off topic Andrew!

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I don't know enough about turbocharged systems to offer much advice, but will be reading along as you learn.

Back on topic!

Been to see the guy this week who's welding it. He's done the 4 corners where the subframe mounts are. He's cut them away and rebuilt them. The heal board has been cut and replaced where it's rotten. Rear valance patched.

He decided to check the rest of the shell. He put a small hole in the drivers side floor just next to the crossmember. This needs plating. He also said the channel along the floor going to it has cracked so this needs replacing too.

He has run out of gas so it's going to be another week or so before it's ready to collect. I told him to take his time but I'm glad it's moving along faster than I hoped.

I was on my way to work so didn't take any pictures I'm afraid.
