rolling road session complete after getting stuck behind a pretty bad crash on the motorway and a brand new spark plug failing. Has anyone got some spare cage foam I could pinch? no where around here seems to sell 45mm foam.


I break stuff...... :w

we now have 182bhp at the flywheel, cracking recommendation on the rolling road, he's a good guy and I will definitely be going back.

Excellent...must have a fair bit of boost to achieve that :D

Good luck testing tomorrow :wink:

I think he said 0.8 or 0.9? still feels underpowered but we can work on that, im still pretty pleased with it.

there is certainly more to be had but the hotside on our turbo has a number of cracks around the wastegate, so we are losing boost there and it didnt warrant chasing any more under the circumstances :w but 182 on 0.9 bar...when it wasnt 0.7 that is :?


i'm making this up as i go along :shock:

182bhp is on the high side of what you'd expect from a warmed Ti engine.

Corky is running 164bhp I think and Ben Curry 150 something I think.

We ran 199bhp on the Sabre which had an autosprint cam.

You should have great fun with that engine setup if you keep it on the black stuff :wink:

I hope so, he seemed to think he could have pushed it further too.

I’m running 157BHP on a standard cam with 10psi. It was great on CM handicap until I fitted 1B tyres :lol: . But they make you go faster, and it’s more fun!
I’ll fit the Autosprint cam at the end of the season and take it to Jamie for a proper session. I’m hoping for between 180-199.
The Sabre was running unlimited boost, hence the 199BHP figure. It seemed to be ok with it, and was pretty quick.

Your figure is pretty good. Well done !

Forget the pub figs, is the AFR safe??

If not, or it wasn't checked, start building the spare engine tomorrow...
