NS Corse Turbo

This Blog will Continue from where the Corse Turbo Thread Ended, Starting with the Engine Blow up and Rebuild.

  1. Water Injection

    Not quite finished yet, but to help with reducing exhaust temperatures & a little with the charge cooling, the latest addition to my car is water Injection, this shouldalso once proven allow a little more horsepower, around 525BHP, safely
