High tensile head studs made in Germany.

the ported head does have quite large inlet/outlet ports. i took a lot of material out of the std turbo exhaust manifold to make it match the gasket/head port. 

inlet is a std vvc manifold. matched the inlet gasket up to that, not so good a fit. ground a few bits to make it match the gasket/head.

also looked at the lower/upper manifold joint. took quite a bit out of both bits of manifold to get those two to match up.

finished building the engine...

got the engine to the dyno..


had to make a new elbow as the original one didn't fit on the dyno too well...

took a quick vid of it on my phone, sound is bad but you get the idea..

is now for sale!

downpipe and sump are made for a metro but can be changed if your fitting into something else. also the actuator is a very close fit to an R65 box you can use a PG1 but the inlet side will need rotating a little. 

the engine as you see it, running but not fully mapped, set on 15psi actuator pressure, can run more and i have a boost control valve here if you are bored with the 200bhp, 200 lb/ft this throws out!

you will need an aftermarket ecu and its not going to be a bolt in and away you go job.
