    If I install updated or forged pistons that would void my extended warranty, and I have the warranty till next year so if I have any issues with the engine again the next step would be after market pistons and Iíll carry the job with the service center again. I doubt that Iíll be having any problems with this engine the car is stock to be honest and Iím really surprised how would that happen at 50,000 km Iíll just have to wait and see for myself the mechanic at the dealership says that the new pistons are stronger and he had no issues with them only that one customer who was abusing his car rallying and drifting in it, he had removed his cat back exhaust and had it rolling with a mid + down pipe and he really abused it which lead his rod connectors to fail this has lead him to have the engine rebuilt for a second time (after he broke the first engine) I will not however be fiddling with anything even the boost levels Iíll keep them the same so I doubt that Iíll be rebuilding the engine again (fingers crossed) but if I do Iíll be getting after marked forged pistons, rod etc etc

    I think they would be able to carry out such a job, but itís not about how well I know them itís about how well Iím going to grease them up with a few quid, having that said, I actually am planning on having her for the long term not thinking of changing my car anytime soon or selling it, but I will install after market parts if I face any other problem with the engine in the near or far future (hoping I donít)

    Set of good springs or if you rob a bank go kyb or coilovers.

    Donít get me wrong your car looks top notch & looks fantastic!!!

    All in good time pal.

    Have mine over 9 years, still upgrading it! (Well think I am...)

    Hard to beat a clean classic like yours, very few and far between.

    Top Work!

    Yeah! I bought those wheels 8 years ago for 100 yo yo a piece.
    Bought 3 sets.
    Iíve a set.
    My mate has grey set on his cosworth.
    Scoobysub has the last set now.

    Tough wheel, Iíve yet to meet a pot hole stronger!!!!!
    Nobody had them back then, great to see my idea is still popular in 2017/18

    Anyway all mods take time unless you are rolling in it!! :)
