    East Midlands Rolling Road pics. (56k Warning)

    The East Midlands region had a joint Rolling Road day today with the local VxlSCC regions. I was an excellent dat (exept for the early start).

    It's amazing how nervous grown men get, when there pride and joy gets thrashed by a complete stranger on the rollers. (myself included)

    I had to put mine on to get rid of the gremlins from the AMD nightmare! (my engine management light came on just before i was going on the rollers and my car was running rough)

    I'm really happy with my results.
    Measured BHP - 128.5 BHP
    Max tourque - 125.6 Ib/ft

    I've got a really stong power band too. running at full-ish torque between 3400-5300rpm.

    Here's the pics.

    My 1.8 SRi






    Scottyboy's 888






    Ffoeg's 2.2SRi (151bhp)




    A5TRA_59ORT's 1.6 (108bhp)


    Mshah - 2.0 Turbo





    Some pics of the VxlSCC lot
    This GSi has 200,000 miles on the clock and still ran at 154bhp!

    what a day had a fantastic day cheers to all those that did all the organising

    will upload the pics in a bit

    am glad to be indoors tho only just got back five mins ago and have already started on the beer

    was well impressed with my 108.2BHP and 113ft.lb torque

    not bad gain from a £30 K&N works out at about £3.5 per extra BHP (bargin )

    didn't think they was much point in posting the pics of the cars on the rollers as they all look the same as keif's but here is a shot of the AS cars in the car park (if anyone wants to combine the two pics into one feel free to do so)





    from left to right

    mshah's coupe turbo, my 1.6 sport, ffoeg 2.2 SRI, keif's 1.8 SRI, scottyboys 888

    As always where AS are involved it was another great day - thanks to VxLSCC for organising the day and Keif organising our but of it. Much appreciated.

    My figures
    Measured BHP - 152.6 BHP (151.1 Corrected)
    Max tourque - 154 Ib/ft

    I'm well chuffed with my figures, easpecially as there were other 2.2's there to compare results with - bog standard made 145.1 (as per the book), and K&N only made 148. Mine's got the full 'poor mans viper' ie de-restricted, panel filter and veccy pipe and made 151 . Now that seems to proves to mods actually do something.

    Here's the graphs.........





    Next job is power tinkering

    She'd notice, because her car would suddenly be clean!

    I'm sure Scotts already asked the relevent question, to the relevent people.

    If you need come small clips Scott. let me know the actual diameter you need. I'll ask about for you.
