    76 Cool Blue to a 106 RON fuel which is legal to use on UK roads now, to get the most of it you would have to run a fairly agressive ign advance on the map (can do this with a Revo Select + device).....although I was only joking :icon_thumright:

    Highlight of the day>? Going out in Scott's (Blue Thunder) KO4'd S4! It made my vision go funny when he booted it and was something else!
    Soon as my business is sorted I will be buying a second car, and maxing mine out! Gotta be done.

    Found me figures too.....

    196bhp and 247lb/ft at the wheels.!

    Cheers for the photo Sitrials. Your camera makes the car appear clean!
    What did you think of my mate's Porsche? He took me for a spin and I think a little bit of poo popped out!

    Topped the reservoir up as it had lost about a litre in the time between me taking some people out for a white knuckle ride and the end of my dyno runs. Don't know if you noticed, but it had left a puddle on the rollers!

    Drove 40 miles home and it had lost another litre by the time I got there. Going back to it's favourite place (Unit 20) on Monday for a bit of TLC and probably a new radiator. Don't laugh at the old girl, she's nine years old now!

    My mate's Porsche is a monster. It's a race-prepped 993 with full cage, extinguishers, etc. When you've got 3.6 litres of pure power exploding a couple of feet behind your ears with only the chassis for sound proofing, it's deafening! He would have taken a few people out, but as it had started raining, he couldn't keep the thing stuck to the road... even with that wing!

    Good to meet you guys.

    Just got in from work. Nice meeting you all today. (I was the guy with the f**ked up fro - soon to be shaven!)

    Blue Thunder your mate was sound, he knew his stuff. He told me the mares you had with your S4 I hope you get it sorted once & for all.
    Having said that he told me your S4 was much faster than his Porsche, so it cant be all bad! Also from what Mattfin was saying your car was an absolute monster!

    It seemed like everyone was down by 10 to 20 bhp? Must just be the rollers?

    Cheers mate but if I cut it off I may shed some weight & improve my 0-60!

    Lovely car you got there jeffers. Love the intercooler/hoses viewable from the bumper it makes the car look mean. It also sounded very nice when you took off...

    Some nice looking examples there lads, wish I could have made it, but too far for me to travel.

    Quick question - Why are everyones headlights on when on the rollers?

    they put something on to the positive terminal on your battery which takes a reading from the alternator and if you don't have your headlights on then it doesn't give a true reading!

    Cheers for this pic Sitrials, the one off my phone turned out ****!

    It was good to meet those of you that went, and to have a nosey at your motors :)

    Mine ran 224bhp at the wheels and 283lb/ft torque. I'm assuming we're going to post graphs/numbers in a dedicated thread so we can pick them apart and have ageneral d1ck swinging contest lol? (hint hint Aky). Maybe that's not such a good idea though, as I don't think mine came out as the longest!
