Here are the results hope you like. We are happy with it. Took it for a road test after and she was like an untamed horse. Me and Steve couldnt stop laffing, I said 'I think we need bigger brakes lol' Need to get a solid engine mounts and the exhaust is having a reseal as with the movement, the 4 branch is knocking the Gumgum off and holes keep poking through. It will all be sorted soon, nothing major.

Anyway enjoy

Run 1 b4 wurmod and tune 160.2 bhp

[URL]=http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif]http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif[/URL]

3 after wurmod and tune reading where
171 measured bhp
168.8 flywheel @ 6658 Rpm
131.1 mph @ 7190 Rpm not bad for 4th gear Laughing

Really happy with it he also said it might naturally gain a few bhp once everything settles Very Happy

Our mates Red versions are on YouTube

Right loads to go through I think. She has had a solid engine mount fitted , a full respray, was meant to be just touching up areas and getting rid of big dents but the guy screwed it up and had to fully respray her. She isnt totally finished got to go back for another 2 days work. Shes on coilies too now, so much better. only a couple of pics but you'll see how Red she is now lol.

Had a nightmare few weeks. Yes Stu it has been a bloody good un until the bottom end blew a crank shell Sad We feared the worse but have been advised to get a bottom end as we could be replacing the shells forever as Matt cant determine the cause, due to the shell not being there at all. Found a 2.0L engine in Droitwich and Steve is picking it up today. All the expensive parts of the engine are ok thank god, ok its costing 150quid but could have been so much worse. More torque too Very Happy

Hey Sheila glad to hear you've got the new engine all sorted now. Must have a been a bit of a knightmare blowing the bottom end after all the work you've had done on it, but 150 is pretty good to get it back to full health again. I'll have to come up and take a look sometime

Bigger Better Stronger Very Happy

ps. say hi to Steve for me
