Well, spin my nipple nuts and send me to Alaska!
I’ve done the power-to-weight calculation (it’s an addy-up and then a divide) for the new engine, other bits, etc. and I should be seeing 383 bhp/tonne.
- I get those carbon-kevlar seats I’m after,
- The weight-loss changing from pinto to duratec is 40kg. I haven’t managed to weigh either engine yet, but the going rate seems to be 50kg.
- the engine makes 215bhp, but I’ve bought all the parts from one of the most reputable teams in the business and I’ve stuck with them so I don’t end up with mis-matched components.
