    Exclamation Is it true???

    I was just browseing on ebay just now and cam across this

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Z20let-Z20let-...QQcmdZViewItem

    Just wondered if the prices and the bhp would b right, and that it looks like a pretty standard engine, or does anyone no the car?? Just wondered.

    Yeah it prob would be right. The figures may be a little optimistic but i have seen a few EDS cars produce over 300bhp on other rolling roads other than REGALs

    The advert is a cut and paste from Regal's website.

    Don't be surprised if you don't get 302 bhp though.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    You do know that is just for the engine not the whole car?
    Don't know how it all added up to £11000 unless they have had sachs clutch with qualiff diff.
    With steel rods and pistons. It doesn't say exactley what has been done just phase 3.5 which doesn't add up to £11,000.

    Edit:
    Just found out why its £11,000
    as that includes parts and labour for an engine conversion.
    so doesn't include uprated clutch and diff or uprated engine internals

    Yeah I saw that and thought it was a joke at first, till I saw the reciept and 90% of the cost is for the engine + conversion

    Don't know how it cost £1000+ to go from stage 3 to 3.5, as its only £250 on there site for software + a couple of hundred for injectors and AFM.
