  1. Water Injection

    by , 18-04-2016 at 08:51 (NS Corse Turbo)
    Not quite finished yet, but to help with reducing exhaust temperatures & a little with the charge cooling, the latest addition to my car is water Injection, this shouldalso once proven allow a little more horsepower, around 525BHP, safely

    The tank and pump are in the boot, with the solenoid and nozzle on the boost pipe (taped in place for now)

    I am being conservative for a while and just running 1bar boost (I must be getting old), but still getting decent numbers..

    473BHP & 460lb ft

  3. On The Road Again

    Well Finally its back on the road - only 16months after the head gasket went.

    OK no turbo installed at the moment, but its on the road - MOT passed without issue Yesterday, that despite having a small number plare on the front and a speedo that was reading 4x road speed - I had forgotten to change the number plate and to re-calibrate the speedo for the new trigger wheel..

  5. Engine Mapped N/A

    by , 18-12-2014 at 10:30 (NS Corse Turbo)
    Had the engine mapped Yesterday, see below.
