engine is now a 1.4 and turbo'd limited to 16psi by the clutch and going strong :) also converted to ford waisted spark coil pack and dual VB921's as the standard rover coil setup couldnt take boost, constant missfires.

running the msns-e extra code and larger injectors and car runs like a dream!

engine is now running 4x VW coil on plug ignitors, a very large T28 and with a red line of 8000rpm produced both peak torque and peak power right on the limiter of 330bhp and 220ft/lb respectively.

engine was stripped for inspection after the above power run and everything was in tip-top shape, not even the slightest sign of detonation, engine is now back together and being used daily, weather permitting.

Showing coils, the bodyshell also recieved a nip and tuck at this point.

Image
original engine build, with the rover coupe turbocharger it made 200hp / 170ft/lb@1bar of boost.


Image
same again, first fit of turbocharger, before boost hoses and lines were ran

Image

home made uprated clutch with twin pressure plates, so far so good :lol:

Engine is now in the 11's still a standard 1400cc bottom end, vvc exhaust camshafts, 8000rpm limit, 9.5:1 CR, 2 bar of boost and a large dose of methanol injection to stave off detonation. supprisingly capable little lump.

Still on the ms1 -extra-hires code, may have to swap over to the ms2 cpu shortly when i moove to bigger injectors to try keep a sane idle.
