Dear Power-lovers,

Well, we all knew it would happen some time, but it did yesterday.

A well-known GTR (that I used to part-own) ran on a well-known dyno, at a well-known tuner (no need for advertising in this thread) and made the following power:

1015bhp at the axles!

Needless to say this is just a power at axles figure, the true engine power is obviously higher, but I don't think that the figure above needs improving by adding a huge imaginary transmission-loss figure.

It certainly blew me away so I'll say it again:

1015bhp at the axles

Now let's hope the car gets the power to the ground at TOTB2......

Guy,

Was that using the THOR 1600bhp Dynapack? The one that will be at Billing and 10OTB2?

Or on Abbey's own dynapack (I thought that 1 was only rated at 800bhp at the axles hence my query)

PS fantastic effort! :D

Dyno

It was at Abbey, I believe they have uprated from their original dynos. They also supplied the Thor Dyno I believe.

I think that this reading was at the limit of their dyno (and may even have exceeded the normal 'limit').

Anyway, I think we should all be pleased that finally there is a genuine dyno-proven 1000bhp+ GTR in the UK.

That is a fantastic achievement - is there a current up-to-date spec sheet for the car?

The old Project X web pages haven't been updated for a while. It would be nice to see how the projet has progressed over the year.

Cheers
