Spending that sort of money I would have insisted on an ECU that could handle VVT. Using an Adaptronic would have added a marginal amount to the cost and given a better result IMO. ;)

for $500 extra could have had billet rods put in for safety and 2 hours to fit them.

Nice to see something unique though from an M15a?

I'm not sure whether to take your comment as sarcasm or serious? :lol:

I assume sarcasm, as even if the rods were available for $500 (i haven't looked), removing the head in the car or the whole engine to get the piston and rods out, pistons off rods, new rod bearings, new head gasket, refitting, there is $3000 or more straight off the bat, while your doing rods you may as well do pistons, then valve springs and head studs, and now we have spent $8000+. My question would be to what benefit? The car is almost impossible to drive with 180hp and has been going for 1000's of klm's now.
