MGB V8 rolling road tune

Chris Rodgerson brought in his very tidy MGB V8 for a rolling road session. The Rover V8 is running on twin SU carburetors and has a mild cam in it. Getting the engine properly tuned has found Chris a decent performance increase from 2500rpm up with a jump of around 30% at 4500rpm.

More rolling road tuning

Ian Rowsel brought his nearly completed Westfield XI kit car for a base setup. The car is running an MED 1380cc A series with fast road cam and a Weber. Unfortunately the manifold was leaking air so is off to get milled true before we complete the tuning. Next in today was Mr Helliers 1700cc crossflow powered Mk1 Ford Escort, also running on Webers.

Rover P6 2000 on the rollers

Martin Blum brought his beautifully presented P6 in for a tune today. The 2000cc engine has been fitted with the larger 2″ SU carburettors from the 2.2 and needed setting up. Re-profiling of the needles found an additional 15bhp at the wheels.
