    tuffty, its a jabbasport uprated sachs clutch with billet flywheel. see how good it is if it needs to go on.

    power should be 380ish bhp, maybe 400, 330ft/lbs torque. going to get it rolling roaded asap

    its finished! all but a few little tweeks sometime.
    feels great to drive. lots of water on roads, and no hint of wheelspin. just goes forwards......quickly.
    no idea of figures yet, though its gota be getting on 370+bhp i would have thought.
    not a million miles laggier than my old ihi. 3600rpm and your off, 4krpm, everything is a blur. its savage!

    When you getting on the dyno Mat? Hows the clutch? I reckon you might as well bung the uprated one on anyway... you have gone this far :)

    bills going to try and up boost a bit more at top end, so will dyno when thats done.

    clutch is fine. no hard standing starts, just get the thing rolling then let rip. seems to be doing fine. keep it on til it slips

    lots of water on roads down here, but you would'nt know it, not a single hint of wheels spining, on half worn tyres too!
    it just goes in a straight line, with no fuss.

    makes a hell of a roar tho!! drove past brother earlier, he says it sounds awesome

    top work from bill

    enjoy it matt.

    matt has a fully built motor. std bore, forged pistons, rods, supertech valves & springs, ported head, 007 intake manifold with R32 throttle body. Its a 500bhp build ready engine, so gt2871R should'nt worry it.
    It easily copes with the power in handling terms, and braking.

    Nice sorted car. It rewards you when you enjoy its performance.

    Keep it on the black stuff matt.

    a proper job yea. not a cheap one either, but its going to stand up to the power its running at. its standard looking too, so it dosent stand out. drives fine round town, and power there when needed. a nice sorted BT a3

    Nice to hear that its all good, Gotta love 'Sleeper' cars! My friend has a Cavilier, Its got all the standard bodywork and wheel trimms :photo: But theres a very big intercooler behind the bumper which gives it away a bit but its close to 360-370BHP and it looks like a clapped out rust bucket lol. Whiped the smile off a new M3 driver :lmfao: :lmfao:
