I think American dynos are a bit ‘generous’. Also those engines in the other vids are probably running higher boost?

Add 15% to convert to fwhp.
True, they are generous when it comes to HP I have just released that all the videos on the CB performance website are also done at the flywheel/crank, and at much higher boost. Their 2332 is make 290 at the flywheel at 14PSI, so at the wheels that would be around 230 to 240ish. So with mine running 171 at the wheels at 8PSI its not to far from them numbers.

Iv just fitted a boost controller, Its set to neutral at the moment so we will still run 8psi this weekend, and up it to say 12 psi and see how we go.

Time for an 2019 end of season update and its long one (sorry!)

So where did we get to?

Our first racing meeting after our dyno run was festival of power, I was hoping for big things and get the car easily into the 12’s...but it wasn’t to be. Ever since I fitted the bugtech shifter Iv been having trouble getting the car into second gear and my first run was no different, missed second and rolled over the line at 14.25 @ 94.86, however I did do my best ever 60ft time of 1.59 which I was pleased with. Second run can had no power and we never made a third as the engine developed and loud noise from the case and we retired the car.

20190420_165239_HDR by John Mills, on Flickr

I sent the engine up to Daz Chandlers for inspection. It turned out the engine had an oiling issue and it killed the crank! As you know, am crazy unlucky and this was a new build motor. Anyway, I won’t point fingers or say anything else other then its was back to the drawing board yet again. After a few chats with various engine builders it was decided we were going to rebuild the motor again but this time to a 2276cc (I have had a lot of conversations with folks about 2332cc motors and most agree that the extra 56cc you gain using the 84mm crank really is completely pointless as the 84mm cranks are just far to weak) The cam was also wrong for my turbo setup in the 2332, so that was changed from FK87 to FK10. I only needed a new cam, crack and followers so the cost to repair wasn’t the end of the world. (but still…)

I had ordered a set of M&H slick from Track stuff in the winter which had now arrived, Never ran slicks before so these should be fun.

64836399_2403969719878625_2457075168552419328_n by John Mills, on Flickr


I got the engine back from Daz in July 2019, and everything was refitted, and we were up and running in time for VW action. (Minus the charge cooler as it wasn’t cooling the charge anyway) Then more bad luck… We were ready to run at Action when the fuel pump kept blowing fuses, We spent the day trying to find out why, and eventually located the problem. We removed the fuel filter to clean it found out that it was full of rubber! The new fuel line that I had installed in the new year had completely disintegrated! (bought from ebay) Long story short, the rubber had somehow managed to bypass the filter and got everywhere, destroying the fuel pump, fuel regulator, and damaging the injectors! So we returned home broken again.

BROKE AGAIN!

After more nights in the garage, and replacing all the fuel lines (this time with more expensive demon tweeks fuel line) it was time for Nation finals

First run and I missed second gear again! However did an even better 60ft time @ 1.53!!! Really pleased with that! So I've decided it was time to swap the bugtech shift out and replace it with an old Hurst shift I had (Bugtech shifter its cool as hell but I just can’t live with it) Second run was better and the car pulled a really nice wheely, 3rd run of the day was also good, good pulled strong (another great wheely!) and we ran 13.1 @ 104mph Happy with that. On Sunday we were going to turn the boost up and really give it some beans! However it rained all day and we didn’t get the chance to run.

It's now the end of the season and we have a running car, which can only improve over the winter...watch this space
