Is a 1.8 even worth half of that offer?!
Just got back from Jamsport with what could be described as a big grin
Two clean runs with fuel/air checked OK after spray glueing the tyres (215 wide Eagle F1) due to wheelspin.
Achieved 277BHP and 333 lbft.
Well chuffed, that is apart from kicking myself that I should have changed the plugs on Friday!!!!!!!
Narrow win there Sy
Well done mate
Any comments from Jamie...?
That's interesting, he put the A/F gauge on for a 'full-paying' diagnostic run. Suppose that's the difference between that and a straight shoot-out. Do you mind if I ask how much it cost?
Good figures indeed John.
Would have won you a prize that!
And stolen my top torque crown... Just.
Jamie's main comment was 'it must pull like a train' and he seemed pretty happy with it. I have compared it with the standard Calibra Turbo I ran last time (197/214) and the new one hits that one's peak torque at 2600 and goes in a straight line to 333/3700. 50% more torque in 1000rpm, no wonder it feels quick
It cost £50 making the Club deal a fantastic bargain. Roll on the next one for my Cavalier.
Good results John but, as we all know, second runs don't count
Second run????? This was the first, it did not run on Saturday
Aww shame... I quite enjoyed the black soot explosion last Saturday, had to check you weren't running on diesel.
Glad it's fixed though, I could see the disappointment on your face when it should have done so much better.
