    very!!!!

    you can say that about anything really tho, just go for what you want, and whats suits you. But if am honest you have put alot of effort into your vec in a very short space of time, i'd enjoy it for a while as you wont get anywere near what you have pumped into it

    New turbo, £450 but not many have any problems with them anyway!

    Just get one, look after it and it will be a great car!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    really home cars. The turbo engine is pretty much bullet proof and you'll prob get the same if not better mpg from a turbo as you do with your vvt. You'll love it.
