thanks dude yes im really happy! the guy from total vaux asked me what i thought the figure would be and i said 160bhp but that was flywheel it came back at 154bhp i was still happy as it showed it was healthy then 30 mins later the operator said the figures where at wheels i couldnt believe it after everyone had run he worked out the figures to flywheel and it was 171bhp :cool: the engine was fully rebuilt 32000 miles ago bored to 2.1, got very early coscast head, heat wrapped manifold, full scorpion stainless with de cat, regal powercap, 3 bar pressure reg, blue injectors, derestricted airbox with cold air feed.

you should do mate! let me know how you go! im gonna have it done again elsewhere just to see! one of the lads from my region in the vxscc got 275bhp @ WHEELS and 320bhp @ flywheel which was impressive he will be 2nd in the total vaux hall of fame for that class! the photographer took loads of my cav i mentioned that id be up 4 getting it featured and he said it was a possibility so fingers crossed!
