This engine originally made 228bhp and 171ft lbs on a free stand engine dyno with absolute perfect running conditions.
Then as the engine goes into the car and a chassis dyno is used the power decreases which is very normal mainly due to heat and hot intake conditions.

The special thing about this engine is that it pulls from very low down and keeps on going all the way to the top, This is what we always try to achieve with a flat torque curve.

Gearbox is quaife type 9 clubman box with quickshift and alloy bellhousing. 

Coil over Gaz front legs, anti dive, rose jointed arms.
Rear is leaf springs, Gaz shocks and radius arms (so it is legal to race everywhere, even stuff like toyos)
Quick rack, quick release works style wheel. Corbeau seat with harnesses

8x13 minilites with good toyo tyres, willwood 4 pot brakes, recently overhauled with new seals etc and pads (done one meeting)
