    Default Should i? or shouldn't i?

    Help i need all your input on this one guys,

    i have been contacted today by Karen at Regal Autosport after talking to them referring a new FMI and hybrid turbo.

    they have successfully built and fitted the kit to a 150ps vectra prefacelift and now it kicks out a beautiful 260bhp and 380lbft torque.

    i want it badly....! i have done everything to the vec so far to get it faster and more powerful, this is the ultimate mod for it...will take it to stage 3 tuning...only kick in the pants is they would need it for a couple of days and oh yeh it will cost £2.5k.....

    should i go for it?

    I have thought about this for my (150) in the future. However, were a few things that put me off. I'll play devils advocate for you mate sorry:

    - £2500 is a lot to spend on 5 year old car
    - A new gearbox would be needed to handle that amount of torque (more money)

    They were the reasons that have put me off looking any further into it

    what about stronger internal's to cope with the extra power it's producing, nutron got big bhp from his 150 and his engine only lasted 27k before spitting it's dummy out and blowing up....
