Well some of you may know my car had the dreaded ringland failure.
So it's off to Andy's on Wednesday for a rebuild.

I've decided not to take any risks so going all out forged.

Wossner pistons
Carrillo rods
ACL race bearings
14 head stud conversion
Pinned block
Bored and honed
Updated oil pump
New timing belt
2.0L oil pick up pipe

So should be solid as a rock after that. Then Andy F can map it to its full potential.

Because I'll be leaving the vf48 initially I will probably see 370 to 380ish but in time I'll get an MD321V and push for 500

good look mate, bob rawle got nearly 400 out of his vf43 pushed right to the limit. the engine will be good for a lot more than that.

it's the same spec as my hawkeye bottom end and that was running 550+

Cheers iddy... What power will the standard injectors and fuel pump achieve?

I somehow feel that the days of me saying look at my 30mpg are long gone lol!

you'll get close to 420 with the standard 565cc injectors, you might get more if you turn the fuel pressure up. but you will have to upgrade the fuel pump.

I am going to see what I can get out of my vf48 when I get my engine done. then decide if I fit the big turbo and front mount on.

Knock pressure upto 4 bar and you'll make abit more power,

Probably see what what i can get out of this turbo and save for a front mount, and a MD321V along with a proper induction kit and full system.

Sounds the better plan, run the engine in before kicking its head in,

Yep... 1000 mile run then oil change then probably do another 1000 mile before mapping. Hopefully be able to have a Jonny Gav billet wheel full system and induction kit by then.
