Santa Pod then a 750R Conversion

Back in March I attended Santa Pod and had the chance to meet up with a few guys from the forum and witnessed Francis complete his 9.6 sec run. Must say I was really impressed with the Severn Valley cars there.

During the day I managed to spend some time with Kevan, Ben and some of the other owners who chatted about their conversions and ended up convincing me that SVM were the right choice for future upgrade work.

After lots consideration and even more references (Thanks Ben & Michael) I finally dropped my car off on Tuesday to undergo a 750R conversion.

Fingers crossed and roll on next week

Nice one Eddie, you won't regret it, transforms the car into a whole new beast.

Looking forward to seeing the build

Nice.....I am thinking maybe next year going the 750R route.....cant even begin to think what it must be like to drive. I am hoping for 580 / 590bhp with my custom tune and know thats going to be wild so 750bhp must be something else.

Looking forward to the write up...

I'm looking forward to experiencing the difference over an exhaust and a Ben E-tune.

If the work gets complete on time I'll have a chance to stretch it's legs at the Performance Driver Day a week on Saturday.

Will post some photos later.

Technically hasn't Andy already started? He's already got an 'upgraded' ecu, nismo exhaust and light weight wheels!
