Figured I'd finally get around to posting a pic up.....

So far had the intake trumpets modded, full MV Corse Ti header and SC Project Exhaust ( track version ) that got me up to 144 ATW.

A few tweaks to the OEM suspension, including revalving the front, and a linear link on the rear.
Brembo RCS Master Cylinder - that's one hell of an upgrade right there.

Next is head porting and higher compression - currently researching the Piston to Valve clearance to see if there is room to take some meat off the head.

Also looking at the AiM TFT Dash, and upgrading the ECU

Wow. 144 whp? That seems nuts (and quite fun). I was planning the high-mount SC Ti half system/link pipe (same muffler you have) with the MV race kit tune on mine right after break-in. I wasnt expecting more than 130-135 whp at most. Are the headers and stacks really worth that much? Does it have a full custom tune, or just kit tune? Did you dyno it w/o the headers first, by chance? Are you running pump fuel or good stuff?
Feel free to PM if you prefer... Thanks!

Yep, the headers etc make that much of a difference. If we spent more time on the dyno we could have gotten more out of it.

We started with the base tune from ECU studio and worked from there.

It's running 95 (RON) octane at the moment, but when I get the heads ported and bump the compression, I might go to 100 (non-ethanol) which we can buy at the pump also.

Beyond that, I'll potentially look at HC pistons and have them, the head, valves etc ceramic coated.

There's also more power to be gained by not running 'grease' in the rear hub...one of the race teams here runs motor oil but has to service the hub every month.
I'll be looking at a lighter grease, or a moly based motoroil, there's one from liquid moly that I think will work well and last a summer track season, which will give another 4ATW

Motor oil in the rear hub.I don't recommend that at all.
The Hub is not designed to contain oil.
Do you want oil oozing out of your hub onto the rear tyre.:rolleyes:
The power increase would be minimal.
Keep grease in the hub for your own safety.

It's worth 4-5 ATW, and quite a number of racers do it....

You won't get any 'oozing' if you're sealing it properly, and they're not 'filling' it, it's there for basic lubrication.

How are you going to seal it properly?
When the oil gets hot and pressure builds the oil will force it's way through the "grease seals" in the bearings
on the wheel side.
The seals in MV hubs are grease seals not oil seals.
Oil seals are a different design with spring coils to contain oil.
How long do you think a needle roller bearing will last with a smear of oil on it at 200 plus kmph for 10 laps.
Do what you want.

What racers ????

Glad you finally introduced yourself. What part of NZ are you living in?
