    Today at 12 I'm going to take my car on a rolling road for the first time to see what BHP she makes which I'm excited about and will be good to see what difference all my mods have made :Smile:

    I will take a video for you all to see and I will also get a print out. I'm hoping for around 210 but considering I'm even with my friends modified Euro R maybe even 220 fingers crossed.

    no, at the actual road wheels (true HP on the road, there can be considerable losses between flywheel and road-wheels, the rolling-road measures the latter and the "tester" has to estimate the losses to give a flywheel figure ....the only way to be 100% certain of true HP at the flywheel is to take the engine out and put it on a test-bed LOL)

    I like the wheel power = 189.5 HP , that's the important number IMO
    (basically he assumes ~23 HP lost between flywheel and road wheels to get the flywheel power
    What gear was the car in btw ?

    In the interest of increasing my HP figure I know someone I can grab a K20 head off for £150 which should give an increase of 15-20bhp so might be a good shout but need someone with the skill to peice it together like @SpeedyGee but I know he will be far too busy with the new addition to be taking on anymore projects for a while.

    Wonder what the likes of HondR or TDI North would charge?

    Hope you've informed your insurance company ? Bet it will double ?
    When I had a proper car ( Buick ) it cost around a £100 for every HP !

    I'm glad you got the BHP you were after. It sounds like you got the bug to to get some more ponies out of it now. Do you have a figure in mind on what you'd like to get?
