He got 300bhp from a 2.0 Rover KV6 (OK full race @ 10,500rpm but even so) and 2.0 Hot rod engines to 190 bhp at less than 8000 rpm with very fat torque curves.
NB If he thinks you're full of **** he'll probably tell you so!
I'll see what Guy Croft has to say then. Thanks for the info though.

Hi Ian, not sure if you've read my posts, but I've done that, and got just a bit above 300 at under a shade under 7000 rpm.
It is possible and it is a very lovely daily drive.
Although the engine + Exhaust sound will just about scare everyone else around you.

Well since i don't have this ''bad habit'', can you send me the pictures you are talking about?

I am also thinking of N/A upgrades, and any info is more than welcomed..!

Thank you in advance!

(can send you my email, for the photos if you want)
