i did sent you an email about a month ago and no response, and left about 10 voice messages but no call back
I gave you the price for it, you said it cost too much and can I do it cheaper
the answer was no, so why would I keep entertaining your nonsense?
If you cant afford it I get it, but I am not giving away my stuff . Do you work for free?

I think he was saying that he didn't reply as he was offended at your suggestion he do it for less. ;)

A company called 1320 mini build Turbo R53's which can handle 350 whp on standard rods,block and crank without issues .A customer of theirs (not mentioning his name) does over 30k every year and drives like he stole it with no issues.If you want to be bullet proof then sleeve the block (£2000) with spun ductile sleeves.I am running 270 whp with a TVS conversion without issue on stock bottom end.I personally would not deal with any suppliers that are too far away as if there are any problems you really don't have any control with the outcome and once your money is paid buyer beware.

I've seen nothing but problems with those cars, they are always in the shop getting repaired. You cannot safely run 350whp on stock internals on pump gas. Cylinder pressure is too high. If you understood the engine design you would know that. Those same people said that sleeving it was taking people's money when I did it in 2006 up until a couple years ago when they tried to stem their own blown motors. And from watching people sleeve them in the UK, they have failed at doing it as it's not as easy as they thought with the siamesed walls

I beg to differ jan as i have seen the cars for myself they are run on premium gas not supermarket gas .As far as sleeving goes thats not that difficult as people have been sleeving cars for years over here as long as its measured correctly.There are a few track cars that are sleeved and have been for a few years but it is not publicised so you would not know as people who know don't post on forums anymore as people love to add their comments without knowing all the information.It is a shame because there is a lot of info out there but people keep it to themselves i guess forums have become a victim of their own success.
