Alright guys, I know it won’t be cheap but what sort of money we looking at for a forged engine? 

Running stage 3 currently and would like to track the car without knowing it’ll go bang!

So many variables with this one Graham as it's completely specification driven.


Could be anything ranging from £3k to £10k + but most I've heard of average out circa £5k-£6k.


Also depends how you have the work done in terms of using your existing engine as a donor or some companies offer a fully forged built unit in exchange for your old unit so minimises time off the road. I've heard these at circa £5k all in.


If you get a specialist to do it you will need to consider a company to remove the engine, deliver it to engine builder, recover it and put it all back together again which will be at least £2k. Specialist builder won't waste his time with that side of affairs.


When you've sussed all that lot out it's then a case of who can you trust to carry out the works.


Mine for example had a lot of head work done to it which has proven difficult to map because it reacts completely different to stock and needs serious R&D to get right which most won't be interested in and I'm still working on it over a year later.


Personally as engines are so cheap these days and if your not to precious about maintaining some form of originality you could just get a new unit if and when it fails as these are only a few thousand pounds now I believe so when you weigh it up.


Just enter with your mind open if you do decide to go forged as it doesn't stop problems from still occuring.
