Yeees! The closer ratio 6-speed box and perfect conditions bettered my personal best with almost 1 sec , 1.44,57. I had a total of four 1.44 laps so it was not share luck either.
I have now pretty much reach my goal for the untouched 1.8 engine. I would guess the header and tuned ECU would gain me max 10 whp for a total of 110whp in a 1100 kg car with driver and a few drops of fuel.
Looking a the videos below I could probably shave off some tenths here and there but I think 1.43 is out of reach without more power on the current setup. Wing and LSD might do it but I rather spend the $ on power from now on since I already have most of the parts on the shelf. Next project will be getting the AEM Infinity EMS into the car.
