Not a bad figure there homie. But I'd be a bit disappointed with that considering the massive V8 engine. Surely there's potential for 600bhp upwards??

A std one make 350 so 600 would take a lot of work!! It's possible & a few of our conversions make 600+ but I like the factory feel of a car that ticks over @ 700 rpm & drives like a std car, the cam in mine is very mild & apart from porting the throttle body my engine is std so 60bhp gain is pretty impressive??? I could gain another 50 odd bhp with a bigger exhaust & heads but at the cost of noise & want the car quiet.

I know what you mean about the exhaust. Mine roars like godzilla lol. Which is fine for hooning around. But after a four hour drive down to Wales to visit the inlaws, my head is banging!!
There's me saying you could pull a few more bhp out of your engine, when I just noticed how much torque it's producing lol. That's more torque than you can throw a dog at pmsl. Personally I'd rather have torque over bhp anyday

Just had the ST on the rollers before I book it in for new Turbo;



Running nice and healthy and the last few bits added have made a nice little difference.

I'd be interested to see what sort of power your car is banging out. It looks like a rapid little motor
