    Cool I got similar screens from Stack Injection, but looks like your sorted.  Where are you taking the IAT from?  I made up a small bracket and have it close to one of the trumpets?

    Thanks mate, have you taken this on a decent drive. Keen to hear your driving impressions.

    It would be fairly potent I would think?

    So whats the plan run in the engine more and do a more aggressive tune?

    Drives great done almost 1000kms dumped the oil the other day trying to get to 2000km and throw it back on the dyno shes pretty  potent  under 2500 rpm its very civil but above that it just pulls very different  power delivery  to the old 5l clutch is a bit to get used to my fault because I went overkill with it lol plan at the moment  is to bed it in then back on the dyno  lean it out a bit tunes very  rich at the moment  thats about my only real issue other than that very happy
