Got some cash coming our way and we have agreed to allocate between £600 and £800 to buy bits for the car.

Any suggestions, we are thinking of Forged Pistons .

Cheers Neil & Trina

if you're going for forged pistons, you'll also need forged rods
....unless you can get hold of vr4 ones to shot-peen
So £800 might be sufficient if bought via the US
but don't forget the spend on gaskets, bearings, machining etc etc

might be better just to go for a chip and a boost controller
+ better brakes and suspension
as these will be usable quickly...in the short term

would say Gizzmo as it appears to be the most popular....
have a look search in 'for sale' section...someone was selling one already fitted into an ecu a few months ago & may still have it
alternatively buy direct:
www.gizzmoelectronics.co.nz
You can request what settings you want - once done, can't be re-mapped

re: boost controllers
apexi AVC-r
HKS evc 4-5
Blitz
etc

plus & minus points with all of them
see what comes up at a good price
limit boost to 1-1.2 bar max

nb
some also say to fit an uprated fuel pump/adjustable regulator, but unless you're thinking of running high boost, you'll be ok with standard set up
