Ummmm........Metro is a funy sleeper. Think, you have 150+ FWHP youll b running 13'*. THat would be sick. The normal Turbo metros in the beginning of the previous decade were pretty slow tho, and running low single digits of boost. Youd want a higher boosted turbo. Everything is SO LIGHT, that every mod you make on her will show a difference. So have some fun !

And Jay, could you possibly tell me how much HP at the crank your Bonne engine is running? And what do you run at the track?

I assume it'* a stick/hatch, my buddy has a auto/sedan.

Do you have the sealed beam headlights or the composites? He used to have sealed beams but it turns out the composites are a direct swap, very easy to do and it looks alot better.

EDIT: It has a Suzuki engine, Look up the Suzuki Swift. Some of them have factory Turbos.

Yeah I actually found out the swift-metro engine swap is somewhat common. There have been a few other engine swaps too. One guy claimed hypereutectic pistons standard in this thing too but for some reason I HIGHLY doubt that. I dunno I guess I'll just play around and see what it ends up. I'm not going to do anything like with the bonne, just mess around and have a little fun.

94Regal - I wish I could tell you but its been in shops for like 8 months. I'm supposed to get it back today after the oil pump is replaced but we'll see what happens. Right now the engine has 172miles on it. I guess you havne't seen the thread I have going here its at http://bonnevilleclub.com/forum/view...702&highlight= skip to the last few pages or read through it. Page 13 has audio and page 15 is about where my troubles begin I'll definately be posting dyno and track results as soon as I get it back and broken in.
