    Insane as in like fighting a proffesional boxer for a laff? When I test drove a couple they were mental, the backend would step out with the slightest oppertunity and they breaks would only work when warm. Sounded amazing tho but never good as a day to day car.

    Engine is now built fitted and being run in Done nearly 1000 miles in it - oo its got some power. Cant wait to up the rev limit to 9000 and double the turbo boost You think VTEC is good you should try two turbos

    hmmm in the wet on my old Tyres maybe they were poop, not had a problem all winter since putting some Michelin Pilot Sports on. also once you know how it handles you know not to turn the steering wheel and stick your foot on the floor. so much grip in the corners, been round a few sharp bends to fast and felt like it was on rails

    I gotta agree on the warm breaks, but thats down to choice of pads. i would rather be able to stop when my pads are hot :P instead of ploughing into the next field!

    1989 205Gti with 1.9 16v engine from a 405 Mi16 installed

    160bhp in 900kg - it goes quite well

    Soon buying a 205 1.9 turbo technics (this week hopefully) - this goes even better

    TT kits are amazing fun, no matter what they're strapped to

    They did a TT XR2 on carbs I think?

    Yep - TT did turbo conversions for 205's, Mk1 Golf Gti's, XR2's, Capri's, Seirras and a few others like a one off Metro back in the 80's / 90's. More recently they did conversions for the Lotus Elise which was shockingly quick.

    Great fun!

    Now driving the new Zafira. It was second hand when we got it but it had immaculate paint work. Less than a week at school and now it has scratches down the side from boys carrying bags on their shoulders brushing/running past the car in the staff car park. School will not supoprt the cost of repair.

    I think TT were the first to strap a blower to a Metro engine (before ARG got round to it), I wonder how much an installation would be for my Alfa 146
