    Careful!

    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 :)

    Good figures!

    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. :ROFLMAO:

    Thanks folks.

    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 :p

    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.

    Ian.
