A quick update - I took the car to Peter Baldwin's rolling road at Wilshers garages near Royston last week and the peak power showed 99bhp at 4200 rpm. Does this sound correct for a standard 2000 mk 2 engine or does sound as though it could have been modded at some point? A mk 2 vitesse had 104 bhp at 5500 rpm so I don't know how this relates to my figures . Any thoughts?

 

Peter was really good and the car runs better now after he adjusted the carbs and timing. Would recommend him.

Sorry Clive - do you mean it sounds right for a standard 2000 mk2? If so why do most references give this engine as 84 bhp?

 

 

Also , what's cck?

 

Thanks

That 99 sounds very good for a big saloon engine, they were about 85 (new bhp) as standard.

 

Also, the 104 for a Vitesse is "old" bhp, so is about 95 in "new" bhp.

 

You have a very good engine there!

 

So stop fiddling and get out there and enjoy it... ;-)

Brainfade. There was somebody who had a car on the rollers at CCK and it gave a low result, maybe I am just getting too old!

As to the power output, you can fiddle RR results all sorts of ways, high tyre pressures or the way the "drag" part is done. More important is how the car drives, a tune should make the car feel much better.

lso, in a mk2 I think it used a thin air filter, they are VERY restrictive so vitesse type filters will give a nice bit of extra. As long as the needles are change/reprofiled to stop it running lean.

Thanks again Clive - think I'll take your advice and just enjoy it. Roll on next summer! Robin
