Yes I had the engine build, turbos etc... mainly as a belt and braces measure so I could run around 500bhp on track days and not worry about it going pop.

More than likely a boost leak just get Ron to do a leak test it will soon show the leaking areas

Seems it was mainly an exhaust issue.
And I underspecced the turbos a little, trying to go a little smaller for track day usability.

Back with the HKS drainpipe system, with a custom slightly more sensible tailpipe, plus 5's with billet wheels.

Feels real nice.
Spools well and is making around 525bhp and 435 lb/ft.
Actually spools better now on the slightly bigger turbos with billet wheels than it did before...

400bhp / 400lb/ft (give or take a few) at 5,000 rpm.

It's running 1.6.

Currently considering a switchable map so I can run higher octane fuel than V Power's 99.
Oh and adding a little camber to the front.

First track day with the new turbos and more camber on the front.
Only second dry one since I've had the car.

Have to say I was seriously impressed with it at Silverstone today.
500bhp seems about right, usuable but not too much.

Some highlights...



Highs and a few moments.

Haha great vid!! The spin at the start looks like it was intentional lol!!
Gees that blue 35 if fasssssst - is that Nurburgringgtr?

Car looks perfect on those wheels, are they 9.5 wide? Looks in the pic that maybe the front is a bit higher than the back, not good for handling if so..

Look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks

Looking at the video, I have to admit is was me. The spinning car wasn't, just the Smurf blue one with Litchfield down the side.

Maximum speed on Hanger straight was 161mph, Wellington Straight 146mph, Old Pit Straight 145mph all on the VBox. The speedo was very enthusiastic for the passengers showing over 170mph on the straight - it lies.
