    thanks for the link mate,

    i always hesitate when it comes to XS power. i know a couple of people who have bought manifolds of them and they have cracked (more than once). it could be a good starting block tho, and if some strength could be added, and mabe a bracket to help take the weight of the turbo if might be ok.

    cant knock the price tho!

    oh and reading thought posts, people say that the engine can handle 500bhp on stock internals which does seem rather alot and for how long is anyones guess. i would say 300 with the added torque from the turbo will seem a heck of a lot faster than stock. i would certainly start with 300. i think the main plus point to the strength of these engines is the fact its a closed deck, the cylinders are very well supported. im used to playing around with Hondas which are open deck and need 'posting' or a block guard to help support the sleeves. im currently building a honda crx track car with a fully forged b16, equal length mani, t28 turbo etc. should be a flying machine when its done with over 250bhp and under 900kgs.

    fair play! that crx should be a howler!

    turbocharging the bmw straight 6 engines doesn't seem too difficult either. I'm used to messing with old ford's which is a doddle, so the bmw is a bit of a change for me
