Surely a new engine only job? Looked pretty quick up against Marks in those vids!

Stu's been very busy and replacement block sorted, I think a new crank is getting reground and then bolt back up again...sounds easy! Identifying the cause hasn't been determined yet...juries out!

Performance wise with Stu running 1.6bar and me 1.5 was about equal, shorter box helps pull away from the tight corners which is what happened when Phil was on the same track a while ago. I reckon the holset when mapped properly will be a lot faster than mine even when I find my missing 0.35 boost. Just got make it up on the brakes as they say! :wink: using that Holset of mine yet?? :wink:

That Holset will be flowing a bit better at 1.6-1.8 bar than the garret just needs to be kept above 3700 to get it spinning .

holset vgt 469 whp @1.7 bar
Mighty turbone kitten warp factor 2 @1.9 bar
