Now i am putting a T25 turbo on my car, with S1 inlet manifold....I find myself questioning wheather a QEP ported, polished, reshaped combustion chambers etc head and 280 catcams with adjustable pully are worth having on it? or am i just wasting their tallent now I am shoehorning a turbo on?

Whats your views?

does not = now?

I can't see what harm it do, ALL will help power gains.

i reckon get the turbo on and running first, then if you still have any money and patience left, go mad on the engine.

I'm thinking that i could raise a few funds by selling off the head/cams. Especially if they are not really worth it.

What Dyno said, you'll probably find the turbo will use up all your funds on its own.

Quick question, would it not be better to use the S1 inlet?

Yea thats what i'm thinking. Already bought the turbo, intercooler, remote oil filter, oil cooler and all associated pipe work for that....but wrote a list up of the rest of the things i need, and its quite an extensive list! Sorry, yea meant to type S1 inlet manifold.

Keep the head on mate if its been ported and polished, helps release more power from the turbo apparently. and a standard cam is good for the turbo, been told that a custom one is the way to go for more power.

Have you sorted the bottom end out yet?
