Not sure about that, but Joe has a couple of modded JLR's kicking around doing squat, 1x KickAss & 1x Murnan , i'm sure if you asked him nicely he'd blow the dust off one of them for the 3Hr

Very impressive to see as all other mods in this topic but as long you did not change any timing the engine performance will not gain a lot of improvements. Yes, it will run smoother and react faster on throttle but just only some tiny changes in the timings will do more than these "fancy" looking mods.

i spoke to Alex at the track and he was mainly trying to clean up the flow of fuel. he showed me a sirio he moded for himself and he matched up the cuts on the case/backplate and basically smoothed the whole flow out.
not sure if he changed the timing, i think he mentioned he did this on the crank, and he also showed me some modifications to the exhaust port on the sleeve, not sure about the intake ports on the sleve though, i think he left this stock.

Hi Roelof, I am setting up these engines for small tracks as these are mainly where the owners will be using these engines.
With these mods they are producing huge amounts of bottom and mid, not as peaky as my sirios which do have slight timing changes.
How is wet Holland, we were there in 1998 for the worlds in Appledorn it rained every day for an hour or two.

Holland is always wet , it gives me the time to make some driftactions on the track.

If you are making them for short tracks it is wise to lower the sleeve with 0.2mm, you will create tons of torque more.

Hey Alex, what's up with you Avatar?
Did you have an allergic reaction while modding the +12?
