Didn't see that : 375-380 at the wheels!
This is what you expct your car to have after the ITB work is done but before it is supercharged right?
I thought I had seen ("only"
) 380 bhp claimed at the fly earlier.
So you don't use one of these dynos that claim 115bhp are lost in transmission losses then!
(true story that befell another AO member..)
Do you reckon ITB's give 30bhp, or are other changes encompassed in that 30bhp difference?
The lightweight flywheel supplied by Glenwood Motors & made to spec by De Vries (makers of Gemini for the UK. Cheaper costs?????Same as the Noble cars????).
I have a fantastic heavy duty clutch assembly fitted, again a Glenwood Motors unit & the pedal pressure is only 10% stiffer than standard.
It's cheap in SA & a torque monster 310hp/400Nm 3.7L based on a stock 3.2L can be built, fitted to your car, mapped on a rolling road & with a 12m/20000km warranty cost you R55000, or about 3200quid!!!!
I high rev 290hp/300hp motor, which would be a stock 3L or 3.2L which would be an engine rebuild, full balance, headwork,cams,remap & exhaust would set you back R35000 or about 2300quid.
From then on well we have experimented & still are, I've coffed up around 13k quid on my V6.
I will very likely move the car to the UK in Jan 08 & from there quite possibly to Cyprus as my parents are retired there & it's not far from my home in Athens-Greece. it's RHD there so it would be great.
Jano & me have some plans but before we proceed I reckon that as is, it will shock the living daylights out of any of the charged cars.
It holds at present 345-350hp at the wheels flat between 6600-8000rpm, with the individual throttle bodies we are hitting 375-380hp at the wheels, once final mapping is done, well lets see?
