189.9hp, and 200lbft @ 10psi. Very happy with the delivery and torque.

Making same at 3.5k as old engine flat out!!
I reckon that power level and delivery will be devastatingly good Nick. Need some softer tyres now and Oakesy better watch out! What tyre size are you using currently?

Really am immensely impressed at the way you've gone about this build, sensible choice of components, and potentially lighter than a similar Nissan version, all topped off with the neat 'Team Keyser ' neat attention to detail 8) 8)

Well done Nick. Nice smooth curves, and very impressive numbers, combined with all the Keyser "added lightness", ought to make a very effective package :D :D

Excellent work as usual, I agree with Craig about attention to detail. Top notch 8)

Nice one Nick, that's going to be a force to be reckoned with. See you at Curbs :twisted:

That's a fine looking result, Nick! Well done Team Keyser!

I keep thinking about this - 190bhp at 10psi is seriously good going as you'd need probably 15psi to get that from an 1800Ti - and this is a 1600! My head is somewhat battered...

Thanks Chaps! I'm so pleased with the result. I was convinced we would hit a snag on the rolling road and it wouldnt come off, or would only make 150hp... !

Craig - You have been a huge influence from day one on this. Ive gone with Khumo v70a's this year - two part worns I got from you last year and two new ones. All in soft but 215/50/13s all round to start with. You coming to the test days? Your welcome to have another go.

JC - Thanks! Your beasty at curborough this year?

Greeny - Curboroughs all booked - good opportunity to shake it down!

Roger - hopefully its not put on too much weight. The 'Simplify' bit has gone out of the window...

Phil H - The car runs a MAC valve for boost control, and the ECU is configured for it but the tuner didnt need it - so thats just on the TT wastegate (the mac valve will be coming off, for now!). Tuner said there is more to come if I want it; its making this quite effortlessly - wich is a suprise. I thought it was gonna take over a bar to get this kind of power.

Oaksey - Thanks, see ya there. You had a whopping ~4.5sec on me last year, hopefully we can close that a bit. I'm not sure if I'll be weighed in time to to score points as the next few weeks are hectic.

Video of it on the rolling road on the final run; the engines rock solid in the chassis. The tuner had to sit next to it and do hand signals as theres a fire extinguisher and exhaust in the passenger side...


Needs sound;

That is absolutely awesome. Congratulations- you and the rest of the team must be chuffed to bits. And the power delivery should relieve the cam/followers of a bit of load as well :wink: The exhaust valves might notice the difference though.. :lol:

Unless it is a trade secret- am i correct in that the pistons are N/A or have I missed something(quite likely:-) ) and they are turbo ones?

So disappointed I can't get to Curbs this year to see it in the flesh/in anger.
