Re: heyas

What's a tubo? Is that something to do with widening the rear wheel arches?

Re: heyas

i think it's supposed to be turbo- look how the word is being used.

In response to chico20, the general consensus in various other posts is that it can be done, but it would be cheaper to work the current motor due to requiring: complete engine, new wiring loom, new computer, possible body work to accomodate taller head, etc. Most of the advice I've seen has been something along the lines of turbo the motor that's in there now- cheaper and just as effective.

Re: heyas

Hey chico20, the barra six is taller than 250 crossflow(roughly 120mm taller), so i dont think it would fit, unless you modified bonnet.
