All that considered, is it worth 500 - 1,000 to get that additional 10 - 20 bhp and a bit more torque?

Obviously it depends what you want from your car and your circumstances, but if it were me, I'd either leave it as is or spend a couple of grand, do the rods and turbo at the same time and aim for 450 bhp +. At least that way you'll notice the difference for your money.
Actually that does make more sense, only thing is I think 450bhp is enough for the road,anymore would be a waste. Any ideas on turbo and cams.carl
