Could possibly affect the seals, as the inlet port isn’t normally pressurised.

Turbo woes solved

Was the bleeding bleed valve playing up intermittently.

New one fitted and a new -1 to 2 bar gauge.

One very happy SS1 owner 😀

As always cheers for the advice chaps

Ben
So now the issues fixed are you gonna get re-dynoed? This was an issue for Team Oakes a few years ago where the dyno plot submitted was of a certain figure but some subsequent fault finding saw them rectify an issue (timing belt tooth out iirc) and therefore a hike in power

I am booked in at Northampton 30th March for the official RR session and a weigh as will have added the rest of the cage so a bit heavier too.

Like to stay within the rules :w

I might go back to the local RR just to make sure all ok with fuel at full chat :)

Chaps what’s the best oil grade for a Ti?

Book says 10/40

Which (Mobil) grade is being used?

Cheers
