You should be able to achieve 300bhp without too many mods I thought. I did do a fair bit of reading back in the day on the MR2 forums regarding the turbo and increasing the boost. You may need to fit a bigger pump also. Anything above 300 and I was told they start then to become unreliable.  I would be chuffed if I get over 200 in mine :-)

If you notice I said it took 35 years to put the tool kit together. I've been around cars all my life. Didn't buy them for the build I bought them for their ability to last. They didn't just take the tools I had my mum's stuff and brothers stuff stored there after their deaths. It's time to call it a day although don't have a limp it took the best part of 2 years to get better. They took a lot more than tools.

Why do you need snap-on tools for the build? there are cheaper ones that work fine, then only buy what you need. Appreciate you're gutted having them stolen, but don't let the thief ruin your plans.

Hi to everyone
Been a while after what happened in 2016 I didn't have my mind on the job. Wham got hit by a bit of steel 9 months later walking again. Another year on and walking fine not even a limp. Went to workshop all as I remembered it everything covered in dust. Some bloke stuck his head in the door got talking. He noticed all my tools were snap on. Took 35 years to put it together. Then off he goes I go home next morning I go back to workshop something's different. Office door bust open storeroom door of its hinges. Open a few drawers on toolbox empty looking around no sign of entry along the back of the workshop are a line of containers but I was meet with this so it's now time to call it a day and part with the build.

That's a fair bit of torque !
I love watching things being thrashed on a dyno  Grin

Hi guys.
Today was a very eventful day for me.
As some of you are probably aware. I own the bright orange Extreme Lamborghini Murcielago which is running a MK2 Rev 1 1990 G reg turbo chassis and engine.
When I built the car I always aimed towards the bling and show of the car.
Which is why everything is polished chrome and polished aluminium.
As time has progressed I’ve been changing a few things and turning up the boost pressure.
So as from today everything is maxed out.
It’s a standard 2 litre engine with a standard turbo. But it does have a bigger intercooler and a oil cooler added but that’s it.
The turbo is maxed out and the wastegate is welded shut so there is no actuator or dump valve fitted.
I’ve been trying to take her to my local Dyno to actually see what’s going on performance wise. But every time the day came it was always raining.
Finally today it wasn’t raining and she went to the Dyno and boy it was a experience for me.
I’ve never actually seen what goes on under the bonnet and around the back of the car whilst the cars being put through it’s paces.
Firstly boy it’s loud and so it should be. It’s straight piped with not a silencer in sight.  :th:
Once things got going and it started to give everything it’s got the whole exhaust started to glow red and then bright red.
God that’s hot!
When the tester took his foot off it was like a afterburner coming out of the exhaust.  :yahoo:
The tester did 3 attempts giving it everything.
By the last test the poor clutch just couldn’t cope and started to slip.
It was a brand new clutch when I fitted the engine but it is a standard one.
Once all the testing was done it was time to let things cool down and look at the results.
So the results are 222.08 bhp and 193.63 ft lbs at 7k rpm from the wheels.
Not sure what this works out from the flywheel.
Not bad for a standard engine.
It’s not all good news tho. She’s running altitle to lean and there’s a slight misfire at the top end. Not to mention the slipping clutch because of the heat.
One things for sure. There’s no point in me fitting the Camry V6 in there. It’s not going to be any more powerful. Infact it’s going to be slower.
I’m not sure what I could do to improve on this. I suppose this is the limit of this engine.
I don’t know if I should opt for the 2gfe 3.5 V6 or simply stick with having a modified turbo lump fitted with some serious horse power.
Considering being a lambo power is the way forward

Maybe someone can correct me if I'm wrong, the Peugeot 406 coupe (my 1999 model) outputs OBD1, which doesnt have all the sexy stuff OBD2 has. Its mostly error codes, so not much to play with. I was looking into gear change data, to wire an LED showing gear number, into the instrument panel and a few other things.

hi Brian! thanx for the input. real dash actually has temp and fuel fed in.... the only issue is if the OBD sends the info about temp and fuel etc... do you know if it does? or anyone else?

Realdash looks good,

I've been using this on my dash, in front of the 406 coupe instrument panel, fits well using the iPad mini (although this pic is not of the ipad mini):

With the the Supercars Speedometers app (handy MPH, as my car is in Kmh imported from Ireland, and not accurate anyway because of 19" wheels, also found the visual and sound alarm for over a preset speed limit useful). Only issue is it obscures the fuel and temp gauges.

It would be rather brilliant to have data on temp and fuel feeding into an app like Realdash, so I'm keen tyo see how you get on.

Have you looked at the race technology dash2?
They have warning lights and you can programme the dash for warnings if you wanted.
I'd be interested to see a picture of the setup you mention.

no not that one... is that also an app? Does it also have the ferrari look?

Ah sorry. I misunderstood what I read.
Not an app but a full on digital dash, nothing like Ferrari. I think they use them in the Ariel Atom and some Lotus.
I've used them on race bikes (zx10's) as you can put full Datalogging through them
