Nice! 400atw in UK terms is as good as 500 fly anyway.


I have no idea what it actually is but i was lead to believe you'd need 430 atw for 500 fly [Think]

Power figures are nice to know but it's how it drives that counts [Mr. Green]

I'm not overly fussed about the power to be honest, I would like that figure because to be just shy of 400 would bug me haha! But realistically if it runs 380bhp at the rears it'll still be completely mental!

@ 18% tranny losses 400whp = 487bhp - near enough [Smile] Maybe 18% is optmisitic?

I always though 15-20% on a front engine/gearbox (or MR) setup.

Uuurgh, Bit of a spanner in the works, After my old man passing away last Feb my Mum was found dead at home yesterday morning. She'd only just taken early retirement a few months ago, She was only 54 so it's come as a bit of a shock. I'm away to take about 6 months off work so I may actually get more done to the mr2 than I usually would.
