It's true --the chain engine is about 50mm shorter and about 60mm narrower than the BFM belt drive V8..

Had it out on the road today before it's WOF next week...It's not tuned properly yet so yes  it's fast but not devastating yet

Whole car is still around  1050kg ...

Getting there.....

Just a quick update

Car is registered and warranted and dynoed to 291hp@ the wheels

Torque is basically flat from 1800rpm to redline 241-247 foot lb

So back on the road and usable again

Suzuki 1000 42mm ITB's which fit on the A4 short manifolds which fit the v8 inlet perfectly.
