im guessing because...

This will end up costing feck all

Will be able to produce more power than a G40.

Gladders suck

Will be more reliable

Very Happy thanks for all the coments guys the only reason im doing it and not putting a g40 in is because i can do it for bugger all as tiz sad Wink got lots of the bits already and its should be a good crack something diffrent not after big power !!!!

ps oh yes the compression ratio on a metro turbo is 9:4:0 and my golf is 9:5:0 so not to far out going to use a g40 head casket if i can as they a little bit thicker and stronger
