The purpose is to reduce the engine capacity. Most forms of Motorsport set their class structures by engine capacity and if you have a turbo charger you have to multiply the actual capacity by 1.7. this means with the stock 1796cc you end up in the over 3000cc group so competing against 911s,m3s, imprezzas and lancers which have somewhat of an advantage over a fwd hatchback. The new crank gives me a calculated capacity of 2999.8cc hopefully levelling the playing field.

Ah, I did figure you'd have lower capacity unless you had bored out or something but I didn't get why you'd want that. Da Rules, of course; all makes sense. Would be fun looking at the Evo and WRX drivers on the lower podia while the bloke with the Corsa C sprayed them with cava, though.

Many moons ago my brother and I had a 1400cc nova rally car. frequently we finished ahead of some very much more expensive and capable kit.

Not much done with Cecil except a bit more tweaking of launch control and my boost by gear settings...

Never knew that detail about cc when turboed, learn something new every day!

Launch control looking very rapid and doing its job properly. And sounds sweet as always

Welcome to ccuk, Ray. Please post a new thread in Member Introductions rather than here, or perhaps moderator Andy-v can move it?
