We have run them at 0.6 bar with water injection without any problems (so far) with the correct supporting components, but we do not have any data regarding the expected life span at this level.

For long term durability at this level and at high pressures you will need stonger pistons and rods.

as you know the work si skippy done to this car be fore i got it but mine sits at 0.6bar easily si last report was 280 bhp but i have got the pistons and rods which i will get done probably march then they reckon 1.2 bar but the turbo is realy nice at 0.6 the only thing that worries me is when it goes to 1.2 bar is the head gasket if it can take that sort of presure but at the moment its great

Everything is under review at the moment Marcus, with some prices heading in a southerly direction. The best thing is to wait a month or two to see what transpires.

We designed Prolex Daves set as a one off which is expensive, so we are having batches made that will bring the price down as I suspect that next year the guys at stage 1 will be looking for more power and may want them ;)
