i dunno yet. for some reason work has completely dried up so i am broke as f..k. its running a little on the lean side too so will stick a couple of bigger jets in it tomorrow then god knows when i can get it dyno'ed

my target when i first started was 220HP at the wheels cos' then on paper it would beat a 32 GTR.

you see, i work on japanese imports and my morkmates all poured scorn on me when i bought the VK saying "itll never go as fast as your GTR" which was stolen and with the insurance money i bought this instead with the idea that if it was stolen, i wouldnt care. but slowly i have been experimenting with mods to make it a bit of a weapon.

anyway, it breaks out at 60kmph if i tramp it and drop down to 1, which makes me smile :)

i would have to guess i hit the target of 220HP at the wheels but would really hope for more than that.
