well as you all probably know my 430 has had few issues wover the last few years, so hopefully after some expense all issues are sorted......

the car is now up and running properly with 251bhp at the wheels (previously 237bhp on same rr, which equated to 280bhp at the fly on another road), so I equate this to circa 296 bhp at the wheels....... also the torque at the wheels has increased from 264 to 274 (assuming similar ratio upgrade give approx. 323 torque thingys)........ so the car has more fly monkeys to make it quicker and faster.... hehehehe

pick it up tomorrow, following it being road tested today ...... here is hoping for dry weather tomorrow,,,,, can't wait to release those momkeys bounce

All this talk of Monkeys wondered if you'd bought a Chimp! Hope it's finally sorted Steve.

Lots ......

Upgraded to MBE Ecu,which comes with new wiring loom, sensors and injectors........ whilst at it had behind all the dash stripped out and redone it was a complete basket case of things hacked (amps/imobilisors/stereo amongst others) in unsafely

so fingers crossed I'm going to get some enjoyment smile

Wise investment mate - know you will have thought long and hard about keeping the original set up but the 'originality' of the Prince of Darkness' best clockwork dizzy is happily dispensed with in my experience. Enjoy the good weather that's forecast smile

Gary, it was a very tough decision to junk the dizzy set-up...... but something had to be done, and I was getting frustrated having a mapable chip that only one guy could map, nice chap but pia to get hold of.

Off on a long train journey bouncebounce
