So it's finally home! Need to get the map modded slightly before I can start piling the miles on as it is running far too lean. Hoping to get the engine run in over the next two weeks then it is straight up to unicorn so Rick can work his magic. I'll likely run without meth injection for a while. I need to save up some cash.

You and Rick should maybe pop up to VMAX and custom tune her there on the fly Question

Thats a good shout. I need to get the miles on the engine first. I know Rick has booked on to TV as have I so I'll mention that to him as it would be the ideal place to do it thumbsup

Tom not sure if this is something you may be interested in as a bit of a track for you but there is a Vmax style even getting run close to me in May, it is going to be at RAF Leuchars near St Andrews.
Will be alot cheaper than Vmax and also probably a better surface than brunters .

Thanks Neil... It's a long ol trek for me! I'm booked on to terminal velocity which is excellent value compared to Vmax.

Not much to update at the moment. I have been busy running the engine in, covered 850 miles so far so very nearly there. Hoping to be visiting Rick next week at some point.

But you cant wait too. Keep your updates coming

Regards Faried

a small update. 1,500 miles now covered. Post build oil change done. The first stage of tuning has been done by Rick at Unicorn Motor Developments. It is currently producing 713bhp and 755lb torque! There is more to come from it yet when we fit meth injection etc. The plan is to let the engine settle a bit first.

Last time I was at TV woodbridge the car had been dyno'd at 540bhp and did 190 laser. Clearly I'm not going to be rolling with the 9exx / ESXXXX crew but I'm hoping to break the 200mph barrier.

I picked the car up from unicorn today at took it straight to center gravity where it is having ohlins fitted. The M6 was busy but I had a couple of opportunities to bury my right foot and my god it is quick! The RWD conversion actually compliments the car in a weird way. All I can say is going RWD has given some feeling back. It is totally manageable even with 700 odd horses pushing it along.

I'm looking forward to Thursday when I collect it from CoG and of course the upcoming TV at Woodbridge.

That's excellent news Tom!! Had been waiting for you to post the results, as had received a partial update on Saturday thumbsup

Interesting that you like the rear wheel drive conversion, so many posts on 6so say much the same so it is good to have another confirmation on here too.

The car will be immense after the CG Ohlins set up, sounds like it will be some tool when completely finished, very jealous Grin
