    LS3 Twin Turbo

    Hi Guys,

    As promised below is the final Dyno Run of our latest project, We hit figures of 655HP and 694TRQ, we did however have wheel spin on the rollers. Troy at Northampton Motorsport has given figures of over 700HP if we could stop the wheels spinning, we did run it in 5th gear and hit 180mph with a gear to go lol.
    This should be a lot of fun when finished.

    What a beast, I wish! 180 may be more difficult when it has to push the air out of the way though!

    Hi,

    Totally agree, although i have had one up to 170mph , hit 150 quite quickly then slowed down due to the force of the wind.

    I find the older i get and at high speed, the more I start to think about all those little bolts I put in that hold the essential bits of the car together!!!!!! I expect you have seen that amazing cobra crash in the US recorded on GoPro following a suspension break! When younger I wouldn’t have given it another thought!!
    Not that I’m a slouch in my motor though..........but definitely not 170!

    A few years ago now lol.
    Yep a dry weather car for sure, although off boost it will be a nice smooth 450hp LS.

    Expect to see it at Newark Kit Car Show if it is still on. Like Stoneleigh, it is a Covid Injection Centre.
