Phew! My suspension upgrade is somewhat modest compared to that list. Shame about Anglesey. When and where can we see it in action?

Not sure yet, still getting it run in again and getting used to it again. Likely to be Snetterton for the first outing.

Got the car back today after a final map now the new engine has been run in.
Pretty pleased with the results. :D

Power run was stopped at 7500rpm as it was spinning up on the rollers above that. :oops:
If it continues to climb like that should puts it in the region of 350bhp before the redline at 8500.

There is still scope to go with a smaller pulley on the supercharger, but this will be enough for now.

Now need to get some trackdays booked.
