Yeah, it would be interesting to see if you could bore the ABD block so it was square. I think that would be a sweet motor.

My old psd eaton'd g40 was quoted by Steve pitt to be running 220bhp ATFW. It was savage and was fighting for traction whilst trying to put you into the nearest ditch :-)
 

its all part of the fun  ;D

Reckon you could get over 200 lbft of torque at less than 2k with not too much work. Will be a very very nice car to drive.

drove the death trap last night, in the rain, utterly shitpantastic.

we had to drive to the motorway to even think about giving it full beans, and even then i held back, it is crazy quick, its hard to even imagine, cars passing you at 10 20mph more than you, they get next to you, you floor it, your up with them and beyond, it was like a computer game

Chap who built my engine also had this G60 hybrid lump on his bench at the same time ;)

It was good to get it out on a dry road this evening, much better. Me and ben on the motorway went for a bit of a blast. I got the speedo right round to the bottom till the needle was covering the 'MPH' bit but I bottled it. I reckon if you had the balls you could get it so far round it read 10mph.

I want to get a video camera on the speedo and just pay a tramp to max it out on the motorway.

Ben :)

I fitted Emerald and Steve the cock remapped it but it was still running quite rich. I tweaked the map myself but I an not too keen to go any further.

Then the eaton gave up on me so I have been spending time sorting that out. Just waiting for a bearing then it can go to Dave Walker for its remap.

Can't believe the eaton let go. I though the psd conversion had the eaton aligned perfectly?

Your/My engine mount was not aligned perfectly. So even though the eaton was aligned to the bracket it was not perp to the crank.

Which is I/you/us/ were going through belts. Will get that bearing now actually.

I'd find someone else to map it- last 2 G40 stories I've heard have had very bad experiences, one resulting in 2 melted engines, the other in a car which pinked it's arse off. All after a few hundred pounds worth of mapping- I've heard several people say his business is on the brink of liquidation, I don't know the truth behind this though. I'd steer clear and find someone local.

I stick to the nuts & bolts... Andy is the mapping guru.  :D

Although he's not finished his own Emerald mapping yet  :)
