place at teeside, cant remember their name now though...

also try get arp rod bolt's and get a re-map to raise the rev limit, all the powers at the top end on them, get loads more power if you push the limit up a bit

also look into cams, dont just buy the first aftermarket ones that come along, few stories iv heard of these engines where people have went for big ass cams and it just didn't run rite at all...

get alex in here, his was a pretty decent spec, and linch had a TB'd one too.....

maybe look into fitting a bigger throttle to the inlet... i started looking into a while ago when i had one, got a bracket here still, one side screws to the vx type inlet and the others flat, ready to drill and fit a bigger one, its the sensors i couldn't get my head round then i sold it
