Nope, didn't go around the block. A bit scared, I think, or should one call it 'being carefull' :roll:

Only an idle/default map on the management and not too sure how good that is on the engine, although it is running very rich, there is no timing to really speak of. But that'll be sorted at the dyno. :twisted:

I'll let you know, and you can come and inspect it...

Decided on 0.4 bar boost on the turbo to start off with. Should be good enough.

Ok, dyno done. 142kW at the wheels

Trying a new diff (3.36) because the 4.11's spider gears died on me. Having it fixed.

Did you resolve the alternator issues you had?

Now its time to learn how to make those 200 od horses work around a track!

So where is that dyno sheet Mr Slaine? :wink: We need to get you a run on Braam's dyno also just for comparison purposes :)

Try and get a 3.89 diff if the 4.11 is stuffed.

Yip, altenator is fixed.

Learning to keep the horses on the track is going to take a bit longer though...

Yip.

A 4.11 would have been better, but would not have made much of a difference on the night. Better traction would however have made a huge difference.
