    This is the WR1 Scoobymania has just tuned. The brief for this car was for it to be tuned on normal unleaded 95 ron fuel (unfortunately V-power and race fuel not allowed) and for it to be a daily driver. Final figures are 554bhp and 530lbft. :twisted:

    The motor is one of our Stage 3 units - a fully forged and sleeved 2.5L with custom combustion chambers, port work and cams - all built and assembled here in good old Nottingham.

    The turbo is a reworked Garrett unit with external wastegate (which is replumbed back to the exhaust to keep noise levels to a minimum). It uses our race intercooler core - charge temps never above 24c!

    The fuel system features a lift pump pumping to a swirl pot, then a Aeromotive pressure pump feeds the rails. Flows around a gallon a minute on full chat

    ECU is GEMS with switchable maps, anti-lag etc

    lots of other goodies, some top secret.

    ENJOY. :wink:

    Very nice although a strange place to put the oil cooler next to the turbo surely it should be in the inner wing near the vent.

    Not the best place to put it mate .Leaving the bonnet scoob on produces turbulance in the engine with top mount removed that why people use evo type vents :wink: also positioned there it is getting to much cold air and therefore not doing its job properly.Dont forget you need oil to be at a optimum temp for to maintain the best for your engine .Putting the cooler when it can be controlled better ie inner wing is prefferable.IMO

    Didn't have to time to upgrade the brakes either. :shock: Alot of power to try and stop. :?

    I'm pretty sure that brakes and improved handling are on the agenda...

    I'm inclined to agree and also it is strange that no attempt has been made to shroud the induction from engine bay heat. Appears to be no cold air feed to it at all!

    Can't argue with the figures though, impressive, but with 2.5 litres and that kind of money spent I would hope they would have that kind of power at least. People have been exceeding that power for years on smaller capacities and using a lesser specced model to start with.

    Think in the earlier thread it lists the converison cost as "around 20k", remove the sales talk and read "more than likely well onto the naughty side of 20k". That's just less than £100 per bhp gained (very roughly) so not exactly cheap.

    And as has been pointed out, then you've got to start on the suspension and brakes!

    Don't want to sound like a synic, as it is a superb car (graphics are naff though I agree) but my pants aren't exactly round my ankles :lol:

    Headline figures are one thing... So a good car is high figures for small money? This seems to be what a lot of people want so they can turn up to a meet and say XXXbhp... That is such a small part of the picture. Maybe this person wanted a SOLID reliable and drivable car that isn't about to chew itself up?

    I think it is amazing!

    554 bhp is, however you look at it, a truly amazing figure...and the car looks like it will be a great advertisement for Scobymania once its finished... :wink:

    Of course it is so easy to nit pick at certain aspects of other peoples project cars, as we all have our own ideas as to what is 'right'.

    I have driven a few cars which are supposed to have xxxbhp, and have failed to impress me. Over 450bhp 450 lb/ft genuine, quite honestly, would make an indecently quick road car, so 550/540 should be awesome, if not a bit of a hand full :shock: :shock:

    Full credit to them, but to be nit picky, I don't lke the graphics either... :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:
