I do but im going to need someone to host them for sure. Anyone who can host either add me to msn or give me your email (make sure theres no limit on size of downloads)- They are only Exhaust note videos ... None while driving.

thanks
stew

yeh around 240-ish . Its got Lowered Compression thru some Aftermarket Pistons (not forged ... couldnt afford it at the time) and a Thicker Head Gasket. Its then got a 20thou O'Size Bore, Cam Tunnels have been taken out 10 Thou, Crank has a 10 Thou Grind. Its got a Custom Grind Supercharger Cam and thats basically it. Oh and 1.72:1 Roller Rockers.

The only other plans we have are intercooler and save up for a 6-Speed Conversion then simply drop in some 4.11 or 3.93 gears.

If the bottom end ever drops out (which probz wont happen , APR Main Stud Kit) We will be investing in a 4.3L Stroker Crank that we have over here. So yea, we will see, should be an absolute weapon when we're done.

a 6-Speed 4.3L Blown V6 ... hahahhaha one day.

Also the dyno chart has a big flat spot from where our injectors are maxing out (around 300fwhp). We will see how it goes with the new ones and some more boost... hoping close to 350fwhp.

More like 231. Huh, 1 horsepower per cubic inch. Nice how that worked out.

1 hp= .74 * 1 kW

hahaha thanks mate ... still a bit more to go on the body work yet ... hehehe looking at some different bonnet scoops or some ways to modify the current one ... one idea is to have something similar to a hornet scoop moulded on top to give us the extra height needed for the intercooler.

again,thanks ... its weird seeing a completley new car with the same engine you've been looking at for years isnt it? :P

Love the car. It is nice to see some of the possibilities. If you are still in need of the series 1 supercharged intake manifold (for the M62) I can get one next weekend when I go home.
