I was told my car made 400rwhp b4 i baught it and i dont doubt that.... ppl that have been in it can vouch. i wouldnt be pissed if i got 330-340, thats plenty enough for the street in a 1300kg car!

nice man!!! well done, you planning on getting it dynoed soon or???

by the sounds of it, you should be making over 400 at the rubber man!! good luck, p.s. tough rebuilt engine, forgies, fuel system, injectors, big turbo, boost it hard and you may be looking at 500rwhp man!!! its a 5spd, you should be able to pump over 22 - 24psi in it

Didn't trust old mate down at GeForce to tune it? Or does he strictly do Haltech only?

nah dont think they are genuine. they sorta look like the new holden by design rims or the CV8R rims cos they both have that painted black look, but not sure as they look like 19's.
