    Hi Guys,
    i got an astra estate 1.6 with a c16se motor in it, i want to put a .5 - .7 bar turbo onto it, i'm just a little concerned about the con rod's, i will raise the head to drop the compression but will the standard con rods be okay, and how much should i lift the head.

    Thanks a mill
