    Welcome to AOC mate

    What engine code is it? C20NE?

    Usual route of breather mods like carbs and that would be good, and a good exhaust system

    But personally I'd sell it and get either a C18XE or a C20XE red top and then mod that, but its getting difficult to find one now

    are turbo's allowed and what rev limit are you using

    how much bhp do you want and what torque do you want

    forged pistons and the rods to go with them 1,000 quid are you doing your own engine work,
    turbo technics use do a conversion for the 2 litre machined the standard piston and a low blow turbo 6,000 rpm, you could get the cylinder head skimmed/ bigger valves/ rebore engine block and put bigger pistons in/get fly wheel skimmed/strip out interior of the car/heat wrap exhaust this speeds up gas flow/racing spark plugs/racing ht leads/racing ht coil/racing cat 100 cpsi/

    Hmm

    Not sure about forged pistons mate

    Another engine alternative is the X20XEV which in theory is just an ecotec version of the C20XE, 130hp or something like that, coming out of a lot of vectras at the moment. I priced up a full running kit for £250, engine gearbox and all ancillaries and looms
