    It was a std (roflol) no honestly.....

    It was a std bore and stroke built by sav Sacco! Built to slightly better than 210cv! Had a tdc cam, 6.x:1 comp, 4to1 exhaust manifold but turbo is std location. Charge cooler and efi

    It had been converted before I got it by a so called tuning company! Never ran right, so 12 months with Dr Glen @ Dynotech and a phone call of it runs so much advance I keep running out of fuel! It's a monster.......

    @rogerreno@rogerreno @stu21t@stu21t will tell you how quick it was when let off the lead!!! (Had a rather quick play with a very fast m3!!) It made it to the 20th birthday of the gtt in France 10 years ago and even with a small mishap...... Did 31mpg!!!!

    Just a shame that a) I sold it and b) the next people to play with it had no idea to how to tune a low comp engine! It lost it mojo and you could hear how lazy it sounded in all videos that got posted of it

    It was some hybrid but what spec I can't remember!!!!!!!!!!! @DaveL485@DaveL485

    ;-)

    I do remember that the std turbo crapped itself at 320hp! Snapped the shaft and threw the exhaust blades on a wild ride down the exhaust , through the exhaust suck out pipe and into the wall behind it! Think Glen left he hole in the wall for years!
    Right where's my cocanie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    & that is just about up to date :) I wasn't happy with the oil pressure after getting the car back, so decided on a proper rebuild. Then decided on a new engine instead - a 210 CV build. Pics to follow.....

    Can you spray it green? I only say this because I keep thinking it is, then I see a picture, say to myself it's blue followed by oh yeah, every time ☺️

    It's a shame all the hard work and tracking that went into getting it back has disappeared, it really showed what the club is all about .
