    From what I've heard they all seem to pump out 140bhp+.
    Mine was 142 :thumb:

    Must be the way they are built, ours was quite tight at first, but now has revs and pulls like a good one. Done 4000 miles.

    Sounds about right, look at my thread, mine was putting out 140+ BHP too.
    As Keith Richards tells it, Jones came up with the name "The Rollin' Stones" (later with the 'g') while on the phone with a venue owner. "The voice on the other end of the line obviously said, 'What are you called?' Panic. The Best of Muddy Waters album was lying on the floor—and track one was 'Rollin' Stone Blues'".

    These 2 are the nearest to Coventry I could find. Both have RR not Dynometers. Not sure about their rep, but they've got the tech.

    cheers one's a TVR dealer about a stones throw away from me and the other does nissan and mitsu

    i was more on the thinking of somebody who is a abarth fan and cares for that model

    i know its figures on the RR but i might dip in and get the ecu remapped at the same time

    Admin: please type responses after the quoting, not in the middle of it.  Ta.
