Engine upgrades?

Has anyone replaced their TS with the v6 Turbo from the continent? Or has anyone rebored their TS. I realise there's a bit of a debate about how tunable the TS's are but I'd be interested to hear if anyone has considered this route instead of upgrading to a 3l V6

Re: Engine upgrades?

you'd be as much trouble (and expense) going for the 2.0 V6 turbo as you would a full 3.0 exchange...there's loads of stuff that can be done to the TS lump if you've got deep enough pockets (turbo/super charging etc) or alternatively, with the V6's being so cheap just flog the twink and buy a Super.

Best thing to do would be to get a 3.0 and rebore that out to 3.7
