I took a week off work to get it back together and running. I trailered the TVR to Dale at Bailey Performance yesterday and as always he did a great job diagnosing and fixing a few gremlins before mapping.
Here is the result Smile

Wandering off topic, but as bhp is derived from torque, I'm curious how bhp can be measured/logged without torque?

Did you know (I didn't) that at 5250 rpm, your BHP and torque figure will have the same numerical value? BHP and ft.lb?

I've just read it somewhere, so it must be true. Very Happy

Had a few runs on a cold York drag strip today. Kept the street tyres on as it was just a bit of test and to bed the rings in more.

Ran 12.6 at 111 with a 2.0 to 60 foot.
Fingers crossed for some more dry weather tomorrow, MT radials will go on and let's see if I can get close to that TVR Rover V8 NA record of 12.0
