I don't doubt, seen it done many times, however this power level on 1999 Impreza turbo 2000 with a stock engine (assuming heads are standard too), borrowed time

How long do you think a properly used forged build will last even when you use Gucci parts,

Why do you think there are are pretty much no 2.5 let alone 2.0 engines with 500bhp and a warranty

Remember seeing this post on AFP facebook a while ago, cant post a link to the vid but if on Facebook can be found though his page or Car Throttle, very interesting clip


"Here is a realistic take on how long a 550+bhp Impreza engine will last (on race fuel) when driven hard on the road. This Prodrive build, with the absolute best of everything, datalogged continually, has a 400 mile rebuild schedule. Not 40,000 miles, 400 miles"

Not saying your forged build wont last 500 miles,

Just depends how serous you are & how deep your pockets are,

Can pickup a newage lump for 1500 quid if it blows

Could spend more than that on an empty block

Yep totally stock internals. 148k miles on the clock.

Its a syndicate trackcar, and we're both well aware that with increased power and abuse, component lives gets much shorter and risk of failure increases exponentially.
We're quite happy to abuse it until such time it fails (probably heads or gearbox) and then we'll then build something new & stronger
