    i dont get why a forge engine is a must! standard engines are good for 400bh. id be more bothered about it being clean,and good mods like brakes/handling/clutch/rad

    oil cooler/turbo timer's arnt necessary!

    Probably have more trouble with an engine that has been opened and messed with than one that is standard. A forged engine doesn't automatically mean reliability, they are old cars, expect them to go wrong and consider yourself lucky when it doesn't.

    As has been said forged engines dont offer more reliability they can just with stand and cope with higher boosts and stresses. Reliability comes down to maintenance, or maybe who built an engine and what parts they used. Maybe if you bought a standard car say for example bobs one in the for sale section http://www.gtiroc.com/forums/showthread.php?61206-near-stock-car-for-sale&p=449051#post449051 you would get a clean standard example plus have change to uprate anything you felt necessary for a daily driver or uprate anything you feel with ad more reliability and possibly a bit more fun to your drive, hope this helps

  12. Check out Pulsey's car for sale right now it's the cleanest standard R I've ever seen, It isn't forged but as discussed before if you want a daily driver that's reliable and still running good power, you won't go far wrong with that car, plus as it's in such good condition you probably won't lose money on it, unless you decide to cut up the bumper and modify it. Remember a forged engine does NOT equal reliability it just means that the engine can take higher boost for longer, which usually equals less reliability with an R.
