Nice pictures. Some cracking looking Cerberas there, respect bow The Maserati is a different slant and love to hear it. Seems my little old 450 Chimaera still holding decent numbers (just) at 573hp/610lb few years back on same dyno. wink

9 year old rebuild - I think thats finally hit the S6 reliability on the head. Healthy figures and a long life

Due to circumstances beyond my control I couldn’t make it.

Looks like a great day was had by all!

Well done everyone!

My graph from there, ( SRR) from last year.

5-5 chim NA before Joolz tweeked the map to compensate for the new exhaust manifolds.

...and thanks to Biker28i for taking the photos and for the grub, those home-made samosas were fantastic!
Great meet, nice to put real names, cars and faces to forum names; you Cerb owners have inspired me to double my efforts with my own rebuild.

Really enjoyed this morning, great to see new and old(er) faces. Thankfully no horses have left my cerb’s stable in the last decade and 40k miles smile.

Thanks to everyone for their contributions and for bringing such a diversity of cars, one never knew what numbers each would do, which made for a very entertaining event thumbup

Well done guys!

Good to see some old friends and meet some new people. I’m always amazed how much these dynos differ from day to day, but that’s for another thread!

I was very impressed by the supercharged AJP and I have to say I would like to think I’m a bit of a cerb purist...... I’ve tried not to like Rafs Maserati cerb but I can’t help but love it! Well done on some great engineering.

The cerb has been down on power all year so was quite happy with the 450+ figure. However the night before it made 490 on another dyno!! The same dyno it made 442 on at the beginning of the year. It does show you that you can’t worry yourself over dyno numbers!! If it feels fast it probably is and if it doesn’t then you may have lost some ponies.... a day like this with lots of different cars gives a really good indication of the actual differences between all the options, if they are the true figures or not who knows! But the differences are true!

I think it’s also worth noting that you can tell which cars Julian has mapped just by looking at the graph, all of them had a lovely curve compared to the more standard cars.

Apart from the big numbers from the FI guys there was too stand out cars for me.

The str8six built 4.3 speed 6 was brilliant and the 4.2 with a 4.5 bottom end looked after by Andy at APM at 390+! Oh and what a beautiful SEAC!

I’m going to arrange a TVR track day at Brands hatch early next year. All start getting your cars ready! Twinkam that gives you something to aim for!

Wow. Fantastic motors and impressive numbers.

Macbags Standard 450 Chim showing 286 is also very impressive.
I’d be happy with that.
What was your max torque figure Macbags.

Thank you for a great day especially Julian for allowing me to attend.
Sorry I couldn't stay longer but still I've seen some great motors.
I remember A1RAK's car at ACE Cafe many years ago and I've always wanted to meet the owner ( I didn't own a TVR back then).
I would also like to thank the purists like Michael as I've learned that my Audi TT/Mazda RX8 is not to their taste untill you actually see it/hear it.
Byker28i now I know why you wanted me on the picture with my car wink
Great catering, fantastic people that I hope to meet again.

Thanks to all once again.

Interesting things from the day...

Most powerful - A1Rak supercharged Cerbera
with honorable mention to Longbaz - 531.4 bhp all between 2500 and 4000 revs - the curve was a very steep straight line upwards - incredible
Dangerous Derek pipped him at 533.7.

4.7 Cerberas seem validated. ItsallYelows 4.7 built by him at 452bhp and Gruffalo's Str8six 4.7 at 432.5 was fuelling poorly so charlie thought there was more there

Nawarne and his Tuscan 4.3 built by Str8six 9 years ago pulled a strong 412.9.

Of course we have to mention Giorgio and his 4.7 Maserato powered Cerbera at 477.9.


Well done Joolz - great day organised and he came all day with his partner and didn't even bring a car.

Also Steve? who came without his car thats in bits just to watch, but also bought tea/coffee/camping stoves.
The torque of the AJP 4.7s was almost identical at 385 and 395 each.

I will get the fuelling sorted and be back, a re map is required as it was dropping below 10:1 at some revs especially at the top end so probably a good few more horses to be found.

All in all or was a great day, great to meet up with like minded people and talk car stuff all morning, just brilliant.

Next is a spring track day, @ Brands who is up for that in the spring?

I shifted loads of stuff today thanks to you lot


In all fairness I really appreciate all the advice I was given today

My AJP8 is at best a work in progress, but I am absolutely NOT a perfectionist

I have long since come to terms with the concept that whatever I fix, something else will prove highly destructive

Therefore I never describe anything as a rebuild, it is always at best a repair
