    I'm not sure what the more impressive message is, that you have found this coveted information or that you have done that many miles in an SX, ever, because the rest of us sure don't :wack:

    That's about the right money I reckon, and I echo Chris' sentiment above.

    Other brands you could consider that support the SR20 are Wossner, Wiseco, Supertech, Tomei and Nitto. But there are more.

    Agreed, they're both going to drink it over 375 miles a week, not including when you pop out for this, that or the other. You might live to dislike it if it costs you an arm and a leg to run.

    Honestly I am not sure either, the new numbering still confuses me. But you're also then into new fuel rail and top feed injectors aren't you which is yet another expense.

    The difference between a 450hp car and a 400hp car is negligible in benefit and expensive in cost. Consider that a low mount turbo is a bolt on solution, versus a top mount turbo needing a new...

    Ah, understand. When he said head build I automatically assumed it would be a proper job, not just bolt out bolt in stuff.

    You were just talking about removing the cylinder head not being a problem, I'm not following, you're all over the place.

    I think that's the point you're missing. With what you'd plan to take off, you'd basically remove everything anyway. It would be far, far, far easier to remove the engine built up entirely, then...

    Even if what pointz said wasn't right, you want to remove everything from the engine except the block. It would be easier to remove the thing as a whole :wack:

    Yeah he's definitely still there, the Calibra for sale is being sold under his account but it's not his, he's selling it on behalf of someone called Chris who I stumbled on on Facebook.

    Wow, the used car market really has gone mental. My Golf, at 4300, I can't find another similar for anything less than 7000. That's mental.

    They have been used here on 600hp cars without issue, which is what they're rated for. There were some legacy issues many, many years ago where some people reported issues with 3rd gears breaking but...

    The way I see it, the daily is a tool to me and I wanted something respectable that had the least chance of screwing me over. And the less I spent on it, the more I could put into hobbies.

    I paid 4300 for a 2012 Golf Diesel estate in November 2019 with 44k on the clock. Apart from an episode with the EGR (expected) and a binding rear caliper (common) it has been faultless.

    You should drain the cooler as well. Also consider the additional capacity the cooler has and if you have an enlarged sump or not.

    I think I've misread, it's a weekend car that will occasionally go on track. I read it as a weekend track car, hence comparisons to my old oil choices of 10W-60.

    Because if Labour bring it up the Tories will bury them in the rhetoric of "oh they're still moaning", which the toilet paper publications like the Mail and Express will get out to the average Joe.
