kenmorton is on a distinguished road

Final mapping session is still a way off yet. Apart from sorting out the cooling system I havn't done anything to the car over the summer so I need to an idle control valve and sort out a noisy throtle position sensor before it goes back. Even so the engine response is good and with boost peaking at 10 psi I reckon it's pushing out about 350 hp which is quite enough for my lack of talent.
R32 engine sounds like a good transplant but what gearbox would you use, I thought the R32 was 4-wheel drive?
As for ultimate power, with stiffer rear springs and dampers you could probably get away with 450hp in a straight line in the dry and I don't think it would need a lot of work to stiffen the chassis up at the back.
