Glad your happy with it, just wait till you "give it plenty" on the circuit, you'll probably give the standard cars a severe spanking. I,m waiting for dyno results for a 500 Chimaera with multi throttle and a M404, this friday, can't wait!!

was that your twin throttle plenum at penninsula/ if it was it looked interesting...very interesting.
if so, do you have the rest of the induction kit - is it worth it?
let you know how mine feels.
tell us how you get on.

The Car was dyno'd last Friday i haven't seen the print out yet but apparently made some 40 bhp ( 30 at the wheels) we still need to access how much was due to the induction as the cam was fitted at the same time, more testing end of this week.

took it to bruntingthorpe today with easytrack.
its difficult to assess - coming from a cam with 22.5mm on some lobes! (should be 24.5ish) BUT:-

the reving feels much easier with improved response from 2.5 - 3.5k. most of the high speed part of the circuit was done in 4th (i could do practically all of it in 4th!) ranging from 3 - 5.5k, with 5.5k held for some time, i would never have done that previously but the free reving seemed to WANT to hang in there.

would be interested in your dyno results, particularly in the mid range as the standard 500 power delivery seemed a bit gradual prior to this

regards
