    All mapped up and ready to go on track at last!

    Well at last the ZR is finished and ready for track at last Car performed like a champ for 2 hours on the rolling road even at 7250 rpm with no leaks, high pressures, high temps or any other problems to report what so ever. So for the numbers 157.2 bhp and 148.9 ft.lbs, ok not much difference so not worth the time and £2000 odd put into it you might think but not from my point of view. Now superposed stock is 158 bhp and 128ft.lbs for the ZR160 and on Emeralds web site a Lotus 111S with a race exhaust and cat which they mapped themselves made 160.7bhp and 134 ft.lbs so my 148.ft.lbs of talk is looking quite good and the most important thing is it feels a LOT better in mid range than it did stock lets not forget other than the throttle bodies it is a standard car nothing else has been changed from the Rover spec. And too know a engine that you rebuilt from a bear block in the kitchen and refitted on your drive is making good numbers and didnt blow up is a good pat on the back id say, not to mention a wiring loom you built your self and all the other things along the way as to say im happy is a understatement and the flat shift is SWEEET defo worth the time putting that in. Anyway heres a few pics and a video.....





    Back home safe and sound....

    Nicely done!
    Those torque figures are impressive, would give my clio a good run for its money!
    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence.
