Following a block failure, after 9 years of spirited use, a comprehensive rebuild was carried out by Abbey Motorsport. A replacement R32 block was sourced and machined to accept the original 'HKS' pistons and billet crank. The existing head was modified to improve cooling around no.6 cylinder. V-Cam Pro set up installed along with a high lift exhaust cam. 'Nortech' racing spec', billet collector, exhaust manifold fitted plus a 'Turbosmart' wastegate. Original turbo was rebuilt by 'Owen Developments'. Other mods also carried out to improve performance.
