You can hear it on the second video I linked to in an earlier post.

Back to finish off the final touches at my friends shop, there was a Porsche Boxter 2.6L flat six on the stand in front of the car, puts size in to perspective:

By the way guys, I am going to start pricing up all the bits that have come off the engine/car, they will include:

Stock 2.0L head/cams (about 2000 miles on it, like new).
Caterham intake manifold with MAP sensor and harness connector.
Throttle body, throttle position sensor and harness connector.
K&N filter and tubing.
Cosworth fuel rail.
4 big green Bosch fuel injectors.
4 original black Bosch fuel injectors.

Everything is in great condition and I am sure the inventive out there would be able to do something interesting with that intake! I'll take some measurements on it for those that are interested.

Another short vid from the dyno to hear that great induction sound. I was tuning at EngineLogics in Houston, that's their tuner guru Brad in the car, not me.

Correct, when the time and $$ allow I really want to do that, get some decent hat type pistons with valve pockets and stronger rods.

While maybe not the best HP/$ ever...I would definitely say that's a solid gain for what it is!

Right now I have only picked up pictures, a couple of friends have car mounted videos but I haven't featured very often in them. Something to work on in the future.

Very cool.

I have always wanted one of those but the reality for me is that it is 240 miles to the closest road course, and on the street, ya, I would not have a license for long. Thats the kind of ride that would make me do dumb stuff. No self control.
