The car is now on the road I've driven it 400miles in the past 2 days.

I'm going to the rolling road with it on Wednesday which should be interesting, it will probably get painted next yr.

I hear it did quite well at the rolling road, despite a few limiting factors.... :up

Yes it went okish,

It made 310bhp @5400rpm and 310lb.ft @ 5200rpm with 12psi of boost but I have a bank to bank fuelling in balance which looks like its cam timing.

So the engine will be coming out to check and adjust cam timing as max power should also be around 6500rpm, inlet temps were 45°C about 20°C above ambient temp.
I think I can improve on this though so have some mods to do to the chargecoolers and new wastegate actuators to fit at to allow me to get to 25psi boost.

As usual there is always more to do but a promising start and it didn't blow-up.

I'm out of the country now till early 2019 so all this will have to wait until then.
