Did me wonder how you guys speak of so easy 240 HP for a B35 ? .... US way of measure ?
I had a "350 HP" Corvette.... on our dyno it had exactly 240 HP .

Barry, this image is tugging in two directions. The mud flaps are so unattractive to look at (sorry to say), yet they keep your car so beautifully clean. I guess the clean car wins. How much more mud was caked up in the wheel wells?

Stephen, in the wheel wells it remains the same , except in the rear were the "channels" beween body and gastank/spare tire well got "filled" with mud....now not anymore.... but i must still high pressure clean .
Most advantage is that the sides keep clean and we can go in&out the car without mud on our trousers.
Also little rocks when spinning wheels don't hit the paint anymore ... one can almost see it here in the pic.

oh, and i do love the look... it is so typical "rally" :)

This a wonderful thread. Pictures are excellent. I am jealous of the fun you are having.
You mentioned, "Sadly she get's sometimes a bit sick of reading rodbook in a fast turning car... as many people do"
My wife simply says, "your driving is making me sick, I'll drive and you read the damn map."

Stock US b35 with 9.0:1 pistons, stock cam is 207hp. With a cam, porting, balancing, chip in ecu, lightened flywheel you can easily get 225, even more with Megasquirt and other tricks. The real benefit is much more torque.

Kind of like this?

and I thought at one point I think I heard her say "f*** you" (the only Italian I know besides "thank you" , "where is the bathroom?" and "are you asking for a bribe?")

Hi Barry - sounds great! Did everything tune out as you'd hoped?
I don't recall if you've mentioned this before, but what exhaust are you using on this car?

Stephen, exhaust is complete DIY job with flow trough silencers... except from the Schnitzer headers.
