| At this stage things get consideraly
more expensive ...
The process starts starts with the engine out, full
strip down, asses and report, if 400 BHP is the figure
we are after it is a lot cheaper than 450 BHP as we
don’t need to replace the connecting rods, just
forged pistons, new bearings, block bored and honed,
and back together using ARP head studs, uprated head
gaskets, and all new gaskets. Cost wise approx £4,000
+ vat to do this.
If 450 BHP is the ask, then we need to add uprated
connecting rods, add £650+vat
Further to this, the option is now available to closed
deck convert the engine, giving further strength and
reliability, add £550+vat
The above gets us an engine that is now capable of
the 400 BHP or the 450 BHP whichever way you choose
to go, now its down to ancillaries.
The turbo is the main governor of power, if sights
are set for 400 ish BHP again its a hell of a lot cheaper
than the 450 BHP mark.
For example, if we work on 380BHP to 400 BHP the cheaper
piston only option is good to go.
Add an SC42 Billet turbo, a perrin inlet pipe, uprated
fuel pump and a re map you will see around 380-400 BHP
on your top mount inter-cooler, if we go for more power
the turbo of choice would be the SC46 Billet which will
require injectors and a FMIC on top, the ecu is also
being stressed at that level and would need addressing
with something like the Syvecs ecu, now we are talking
money, the Syvecs and loom adaptor with can bridge and
re map will cost 2K + vat, its a fantastic piece of
kit with can have several switch-able maps on it, and
can stream data to a touch screen display called a "toucan",
as you can see the higher the BHP the worse value for
money each 10 BHP becomes, end result is however "stunning".
Please email direct to discuss further or pop in for
a chat and a free power run to see what the base line
is that we are starting from, a bespoke package can
be drawn up to suit both budget and power requirements.
