I’ll translate for ya - “I’ve got a K series 1800 cc making 120bhp, how do I achieve 240 bhp without turbocharging?”

Over to you!

you two are bullies, stop chasing the newbies away

Not true - I’m only trying to bully Russmeister - I hear on good authority that he likes a good slapping (Perhaps he thinks a re-incarnation of Russ Meyer )

i’m from italy , i’m living near Bologna and Modena

But do you think ,now in 2005, is better a good chamsaft or a good ECU’s programmer !!

And if you change the cylinder heads , valve , pistons for about 220bhp is it necessary change the standard cylinder head bolt and increase torx??

A set of new camshafts and also an ECU remap would gain you more power than either one alone. Standard bolts at the standard torque are easily ok for 200bhp or more (200cv+).

Thanks for replay

and what do you think about to change original piston’s set and a new light flywheel?
I have an Exige and i’d like taking a new k18 and to change parts with only commercial and not handmade.
I need to change pistonhead, camshaft, ecu , pistons and flywheel.
Can you indicate me same brand ??

Changing the pistons and the flywheel are the same as changing the cams in that you need to remap the ECU to gain the most from them and whatever you change, make sure you get the engine dynamically balanced.

Off the top of my head here’s a few brands:-

Heads - DVA http://members.aol.com/Dvapower/
Camshaft - Piper http://www.pipercams.co.uk/
ECU - Emerald http://www.emeraldm3d.com/
Pistons - Omega http://www.omegapistons.com/
Not sure about the flywheel as the best for the exige are ‘handmade’
