Yes, Chimpster, or add a blower.

The 3.5's with a blower were only marginally better than a 4.0l, but when you blow the 4.0 - phew. Better than a 4.6.

If you continue the lines on towards the back of the sheet and join them up so that the top line meets the second at about 40 degrees and a 90 from the second to the bottom line and fill the square in at the back you get a wedge shape..Amazing..A wedge shaped RR printout for a wedge..Ziga

Watch out Wedgies, the twin port flugal horn went on today biggrin



Pure pre-cat Griffith sound effects and it feels like another 10hp.

Throttle response is noticeably better too.

Wedge Spanker is ready & hunting down his natural (cheese shaped) prey

5.5 - that's a big un! Was it 'stroked' before it was blown? ;^)

Look at this poor chap. He'd be much better selling the golf cart and buying a proper TVR, but at least he's trying...

Chimp - you should raise the same thread 'What Does Your 3.9 / 4.0 litre 'on the Chimp forum. Might be interesting to compare.
