Good to see them fitted, have you got it running yet?

The 16th March at Snetterton could be a possibility....??

wired up the throttle bodies and sensors, and it started first time :) took it up the road and the throttle responce seems much chrisper than before, only one problem came when trying to stop, i hadnt connected back up the brake servo :doh: will get it on a rolling road again soon to see if its any better

video of it running, bit poor sound through

Nice 8-)

I want to see power figures with using standard ecu, should be interesting!! :chill:

Although saying that, I am also tempted :lolz: just dont want to kill my mpg for the everyday use :doh: :hsugh:

I love it mate car is pure sex!, good work, its nice to see other people taking a chance :) ...i noticed when i did it i had good torque gain! If you haven't already fitted your brake servo vacuum i would recommend fitting it to the old vacuum take of or injector holes.lol i did mine to my plenum chamber and it doesn't really get enough vacuum.lol One thing i had a major headache with was idle control valve curious what you did with this? I had two solutions in the end...stand of control valve plate like xr2i use or don't use it and have butterfly's open a tiny bit to get it to idle at 1200rpm. Im loving the plenum as well!

I don't know if its any good to you but i did a lot of research into the shape on the plenum to ensure equal air delivery to all cylinders as obviously the furthest cylinder suffers as i was going to do mine...but obviously she died! if its any good to you i can e-mail it over to you see if you can make any use of it!

Although i didn't get to drive mine for a long period of time it wasn't stupidly bad on MPG obviously it was affected tho but not drastically.

Looks great Will. I want to see it in the flesh, how is it bodywork wise now? Did you
sort the bits on the rear 1/4? Or is it pure track slag?

Out of interest, what bhp was it running when I had it? Or did you not get it on a dyno
untill you made some modifications?

Get on a RR quick to see what the bodies make :)

Thought you were getting Megasquirt though? That will make more of a difference :devil:

Emlyn

hi Emlyn, think when i first got it on the RR it was about 128bhp at the engine which was then upto 139bhp so a gd solid engine, body work still the same and not improved with age as just a track hack now. runnning with the ford ECU was a cheeper trial following on from sk8xtrm inspiration, if doesnt work/improve will go down the megasquirt route as know someone in Norwich who produces it for under £300 just didnt fancy the setting up hassle but ment to produce 160bhp on a otherwise standard engine.

i based the plenum on the pipercross idea which just has a single end feed, as for the idle valve i did wonder but just left it unplugged and used the standard idle adjuster on the gsxr throttle bodies and seems to tick over well at about 900rpm

When you say about megasquirt, I hope you meant that it could make 160bhp with the throttle bodies on the standard engine, as I doubt standard engine + megasquirt would make 160bhp :)

no as you say, individual throttle bodies and megasquirt ECU,

Emlyn, ive not done any more suspension upgrades, top mounts just off as removed the strut brace to fit the throttle bodies
