Hi matt I'm going crazy with this one lol the engine is fully forged and lots of head work etc the turbo I'm using is a garrett gtx3582r which should see over 500bhp due to this 4 wheel drive is my only sensible option, I will be using the mini tec frames but having my roll cage incorporated itno them to keep it all together lol

i'm doing a similar build however i'm looking for around 300-400bhp but i've never turbo'd a car before so started doing loads of research into it and everyone i seem to stubble on thats build a b18 engine mostly use stock internal obviously with a piston and rod change! i love some of the kit that you've bought i just got the engine and drivetrain so far at the mo i'm making this fit.

The b18 is the one to turbo so many tuning parts available check out real street performance in America that's where I've bought most of my internals one thing to look at is Darton sleeves if your going more than 400bhp there expensive but well worth it as the standard sleeves won't take that much boost before cracking :( my plan is to build my engine more than strong enough so hopefully it will be reliable and not much breaking lol hence why nearly everything is upgraded or getting changed and also why I bought the full race manifold as you can't really get better and there highly rated amongst the jap scene
