About 1400 lbs.   When boost is up, what do you expect for HP?

Great to see you up and running with this Chris. Lots of hard work over the years!
Any day on a motorcycle like this that ends just needing parts and labor is a good day.

Thanks Guys

Definitely taken a while to get it on track. Too many hobbies and a young family.

Looking like it going to be featured in a magazine over here

Once you've got that turbo Busa engine singing, it'll blow your mind how fast it is.
The car looks the business !!!  8) Congratulations on a great job well done.

Thanks guys.

We're pulling the test motor out (stock engine 65k miles on it) as we've tested the cooling and oiling system now.

Engine going in has pistons, rods and all the other expected pieces you'd expect when you are going to push it

We got out and had a play in the rain. Had one spin and a number of slides but we're getting more time on it

Here's a little clip from the boys

Here's a little in car camera. Pretty good day considering the tyres are so old.

Car ran its first race meeting and went better than expected. Motor comes out tonight for the big one to go in. The motor we've used for testing over the last 2 years is totally stock (other than the clutch springs) and put out 225hp at the rear wheel even though its had done 65k miles. Great little motor

Been very slack on the updates.

New built motor is in and as the driver is the slowest part of this package boost has only been increased from 5 to 7.5psi which has it around 250rwhp now. Biggest update is we've change the turbo from a garrett gt3082 with a hks hot side to a EFR6758. This setup is lighter (10lbs) and a little more modern.

Few updates on the car to but those little boring. We're finally going to bolt on some new slicks and see how it goes

All fired up with the new turbo setup. Different engine note as a result of the new header, turbo and dump
