Re: estimated power ?

What he said, though put some decent valve springs in, the XR ones aren't up to the job IMO.

Re: estimated power ?

i did a 14.8 with 127kw at the wheels and a 2.92 single spinner diff in a 1600+kg ea, so 150kw at the wheels should get you a 14 too.

Re: estimated power ?

I'll hold out for closer to 160, just to be different
Consider slightly bigger valves, with a cam like that they should be worth it IMO

Re: estimated power ?

my guess is aorun 135 to 140 ... maybe a tad more due to less drivline loss considering its manual ... we should make a bet out of this ... who makes the best guess ...

hehe the last time i didint do too bad with only being a few kW out :D
