    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Power nearly as good as a Z20LET and the fuel effiency of a Diesel nearly.

    Tell me what there is to dislike about it? Anyone know the engine code? Is it a Z16XE small block with a turbo bolted on?
    Its a jam thing
