Hi Mouldy.
Here's the full story.
After the 24V conv' on standard headers & 2.8 xzorsts from downpipes back, no air con she ran 195HP.
Took off the Viscous, put in a set of NGK Double Platinums & had the 6 Branch made she ran     225HP.
Now she got Elec' Power Steering Column, (Manual Rack wiv a 2.8 Quaife, so less drag again),
Bob's, Vec Inj, & Ported Heads, but still not finished yet, so hopefully Next Wk i'll have another RR &
then i'll know the Outcome, i'll post the new print out then.
Gaf.

Incase u want to compare anymore, it's running a Type 9 Box, & a Limmy diff, But the crown wheel
& pinion is a 3.3 - (out of a 1.6 sierra estate), not a 3.6, i find wiv a 3.6 diff it's hard to get any grip.

2 Vids for U  

Start from 2min on this 1

This is the other software he has, & they both gave exactly the same Results

If you don't mind me asking, who made the exhaust manifolds, and how much were they?

I need to get a pair made up, but they cant follow the standard route.

Not at all, i bought the kit from Jenveys themselves & they came complete with Inlet Manifold, Boddies,
Trumpets & all the linkage already made up.
It was a bit af a fiddle, to fiddle with the linkage to get em right & a bitch to balance em all the same,
but once tha was done pretty straight forward, had to make a throttle cable bracket, air temp bracket &
drill & tap the rear of the manifold  x 2 for brakes.

But pretty much bolt off & on

I saw in the undercar pic that it's a t9 but on the video you only shifted up to 4th i guess. And this is what i did not understand.
