oh yeah they would all be fitted by Regal. and my mates over at Dynotec will be sorting out the chip, putting me on a rolling road etc..

Was just thinking how many bhp would the engine be after all that.

Fitting a C20XE early next year....

If your fitting a different engine in a few months whats the point in spending a 1.5k on tuning your old engine?

Get the c20xe now and rebuild it whilst you wait.

Ok, in that case there are no inlet manifold replacements available for the c20xe.

Yeah the original inlet manifold was pretty good as original, so you aint gonna gain much from uprating it. TB's is the way to go.
