Dynoed the car, TR6 Turbo (Post engine carnage)

The car has been back on the road since early July and is running well. I wanted to see where I was at since it has been about 3 years since it was on a dyno. It dynoed 398 HP and 396 ft pounds of torque on a Dyno Jet just like the one in Durham. There is no question a 400/400 is there for the taking with very little effort. This is the same tune and set up the car had at Durham. Now I am really upset that I was not able to get on the dyno in Durham at the V8 meet.

Great news Dale, glad it all worked out for you! Got an idea, since we're only @ 25 miles away let's get together as I'd love to take a ride in that car!
cheers!

Wow! Rick's implant (titanium) should mellow his outlook. The new implants have a Mellowing additive imbedded in the hip. He is now MODIFIED also. Hope the did not implant Steel/Flynt Balls also! He may have sparks flying from his a-s. Ha :)
whose attend the MME in Sept?

Kelly, you know titanium can burn. Hope those sparks don't ignite it.

Methane gas & Titanium, an explosive combo! Sparks may fly elsewhere, looks like he has Jan doing the work. Great to see he is doing better now. the after effects of the Hip Replacement will take awhile to improve, but he'll feel better the rest of his life. I feel twice as good since i have a pair. The knee is much tougher than the hip on the recipient.
SAFETY FASTER!

Hey...she offered....and I would be in BIGGER trouble if I disobeyed She who commands the roost. :)

In fact, she commented something about convering the Bobcat to V8 power. (It's already a V2!)

Jean took my job.....jpg

Rick, where is the cupholder? she needs refreshments also. Seems like you have the household chores under control. My wife was great to do the necessities when i had mine done. Fortunately my was done in Nov. and Jan. Too cold to be out. (it got down to 13' once) The MG just rested! Maybe we could get Guzman to do a V6 on the Bobcat? WDYT?

Dale, you had better watch Mke, He will expect curb service and be sure to have the beverages cold. (: Just kidding, have a safe day!
