    This may or may not have been done but the vectra VXR's engine shoe horned into an Astra G or H, i think this sounds possible and interesting

    If any one can point me in the way of one thats been done i'd be interested in seeing it

    i would love to see a 500bhp 4x4 mk4 gsi/coupe (hint hint s70con/scottyboy )
    but i think it will be seeing more of the dblias turbo kits on smaller engines, there are great advantages for doing this

    there's already cars everyday fwd cars pushing out 400+bhp (I beleive 465 is cthe current benchmark ) so I wouldn't have thought 500hp is far off for a road car. I mean the ZLET's been tuned to 600+hp so far (just not in a road car) but it can't be far off
