Yesterday morning started well with 5 runs getting slightly faster each time the last one before lunch break was 2 100ths of a Pb but as I cruised back down the return road I thought it sounded a bit funny, straight back to the van only to discover a broken exhaust stud on the front head :x
End of the day right there, I got home around 5.30pm and immediately got stuck into it, luckily I managed to remove the broken bit and refit a new stud.
Next event is the 25th of June and a trip to the Dyno this Tuesday to get the fuelling set up correctly :dance:

Tuesdays Dyno session was a success and worth the 200 odd mile round trip to Yorkshire, as I thought I was running overly rich but in the interest of safety ie not blowing the engine up again it was essential until set up correctly.
A couple of base runs showed exactly where we needed to be and by putting a slightly smaller jet in the fuel solenoid the next run was much better, finished off with a tad under 115bhp and 112ft-lb 💪🏻 which is the most it's made so far,
Now I just have to wait until the 25th of June to see how it goes
