GUN 16 MK2 - FJ20ET (now with pics and dyno)

Recommended Posts

But for me this easiest way to describe myself currently would be: "FJ convert"

Nice. There's nothing like that big square rocker cover under the bonnet.

Those seats look hot and as with the rest of the car.

Glad the car went to a true enthusiast that is willing to improve it even further - let see some numbers and times

My thoughts were correct it had gone a bit out of tune.

Gun went in with 260rwhp and came out with 320rwhp.

The tuner was very impressed with the package and said that the car made the power quite easily without having to be leaned on hard. I think its a real credit to Ryan that the engine had everything to make some great power with lots of quality parts.

We had to call it a day @ 320 as the tyres were melting and shreding on the dyno, and the thought of blowing a tyre and damaging a guard didn't excite me. It was strapped down real hard and as you can see from the temps its a very honest figure.

The car feels very stong now and I'm very excited about getting out to the track.

Well enough of me here's the sheet.
