well my aim was to get it to 200bhp, whether it is or not i wont know cuz its got to be run in for 2000miles, then it will have sum quality time with ian nixon up at europarts a typical 5 weighs 863kgs, it felt quick to me b4 and i reckon it was around 150bhp odd? cant wait to get it sorted and get it setup with printout!

quite impressive results there! shame it wasn't a 4 wheel drive RR as would of been interested in seeing Drew's results!

Shame about Adam B though, hope he gets the problem sorted out soon incase it leads to something worse!

Ok, i dont want to p1ss on anyones party but the fly figures seem too high to me.

Eg, sooty's 138bhp.
i agree with his 99.5bhp @ wheels but 39% transmission losses is way too high for a front wheel drive car.

The norm for a front wheel drive is 25% although some reckon the 106 box only gives 10% losses.

So 99.5 + 25% =124.3bhp which seems a more reasonable figure to me.

Well to explain... a flywheel figure is theoretical figure as a RR actually measures power @ wheels and it is reckoned a normal front wheel drive car has 25% losses through the gearbox, rear drive has more due to gearbox and seperate diff.
