Wow some mega impessive figures, i was going to say it sounds like we have some very happy power fighure rollers, everyone seams to be 50hp up on last years at northampton, but after johns comment on the 7port it sounds fine.

So guys my questions to you lads with the 230+ power figures what have you been doing with the motors, is it end of season so just crank the boost up or have there been some clever mods done.

Has some one got all the figures to make a list of whos car run what with brief spec

rick


yup a bit more boost and a side pipe is all on mine.

I would also say that even though the fan wasn't "that good" that it was probably marginally better that the one at Northampton last year.

Sounds like I've missed a top day out. Some really impressive powers. Especially pleased with our shit heap of a van. Completely outstripped our expectations.

yep looks like a good event it would have been good to see my 998 SC12 setup against the most advanced small bore of Paul S's creation.
I would have been good to see the difference in performance, against spec?

I run a supercharger and I don't care the TB is on the wrong side.

I personally asked at least 4 people with some of the best SC setups that I knew of, both suck and blow, but sadly none could make it.

Maybe next time.

when I read the original thread I didn't see much point in turning up with my small amount of power then didn't bother reading the thread again until the results were in.

gr4h4m, it doesn't matter if your not as powerful as some, if you have some thing interesting (which sounds like you do) you should have brought it along :) Any thing that's good what ever the power is welcome.

I have been informed that the average is very close to last years number.

Matt, your engine have everything that the others have except a modern turbo.

Maybe it's time for MiniWilliam Turbo 4.

It would be good in the future to see the difference in power between my setup and a more efficient turbo setup

It's probably my lack of understanding, but I'm a bit confused.

I watched the video of our van on the rollers last night. Once he's got it up to speed, he drops it into neutral and lets it cruise down. Is this so that the RR can calculate transmision losses? Obviously it can't be measuring engine power at that point as the engine isn't rotating the driven wheels.

Yes Andy, you recoreded the rundown test, that, as you say, measures losses.
