    Leo's Rover 420GSi Turbo

    Hi everyone,

    I don't post on here much but enjoy reading the threads and especially looking at the pics of all the tasty old school cars!

    Thought I'd share my happyness with you all after a RR run yesterday with the rovertech.net boys.

    My car made 235bhp @ 6100rpm and 239lb/ft @ 4200rpm on 12psi boost

    Standard figures are 197bhp and 174lb/ft so quite an increase Am still on the original engine which has done 115,000 miles (car is a 1994).

    Mods are:
    Big air filter in cold air box (in place of the battery which is in the boot)
    Nissan S14 200SX turbo
    Nissan Pulsar GTiR intercooler
    2.5" exhaust from the turbo back
    GBE mechanical boost controller (not a bleed valve)

    Well chuffed

    Cheers all,
    Leo

    sounds like your mods are working leo and a nice and sensible boost level as well , will it run at 15 psi or does the fueling go lean ?

    nice one,

    to go much more you really ned an aftermarket ecu or some other trick stuff to get enough fuel into the engine, pistons too arent really upto big boost on tomcats
