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.

i had 5bhp more drag than your print out.next time im gonna try new diff g/box oil and see what happens.

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.

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.

well lad fine set up you got there is there much work involved in fitting them throttle bodys they obviously made a great difference.

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.

Yeh M8, All Power Run's Done In 4th Only
