More pics of the Motor!
Ok here you go... creeping up on it to not scare it away... lol... I think the induction noise is going to get a bit tiring, but hey ho!
Soon to be running on a Renix 3A ecu, will keep you posted.
Hey ho, update time, Houston we have go! This is for Eddie really, I will get a better video for you when we go to Peter's dyno, welcome to come if you can... this has been a real collaborative project in terms of getting Chris up and running with his P4 after a long history. The car is simply stunning, and it has been achieved with ingenuity by Chris; it hasn't been a 20k budget spend on an engine upgrade either, substantially less... Chris had originally contacted Stunned Monkey for a tripple weber setup to replace the constant injection setup he had on his R30 PRV unit. Stunned put Chris on to me very kindly, and I talked with Chris regarding potential options, suggested going even-fire PRV engine swap, cams, fuel injection, and throttle bodies... intention was to achieve the same costs approximately as the webers and inlet manifold for the tripples. It was agreed, and off we went, I then put Chris in touch with Eddie to get the throttle bodies, manifold, and linkage setup. CLee and I sorted a donar 3ltr engine, received a cam upgrade, and I then had the OE Fenix 3A ecu to sort blah blah... both Chris and I have had various bits to do here and there, and last year I was pretty time depleted, so progress was slow, and each visit I made was really fixing bugs one at a time around the engine, as it had all been sat for 20 years... and you simply find things, Chris dilgently fixed and we moved forward.. I've obviously got to know Chris very well through the process, and it has been a pleasure to walk this journey with him.. he's already talking about his next dream project... and ummm it would be nice, especially when you look at his work and attention to detail... Ok, back to the plot - yesterday got Chris up and running with a Mot trip map, real tuning to be finished off on a session later... but here you go, first spin of the wheels for 20 years...
I know, total thread neglect... well, all my stuff is on facebook instead these days. Anyway, wanted to get some input on this one, had it on the dyno yesterday, not the best of days as it turned out... stuff such as my emulator not wanting to play, trying a different system and struggling with the software, and didn't quite establish if it was me or the kit. So I guess I'll have to return to this one, but for now it is 238bhp @ 6000 rpm, and 224 ft-lb @ 3700 rpm, and I have no clue whether this good, bad, or indifferent?? What is folks experience, be good to get peoples input, as don't know whether I'm leaving food on the table, or I should be happy, at the moment, think I'm just grumpy...
