Does anyone know if Mtec Automotive (Westbury) are any good?
Or another local Rolling Road?

I want to put the Puma on a rolling road, just to check its not running rich or lean etc before it's used for long periods with the NOS.
Last thing I want is the floor falling off :lol:
Someone recommended Interpro at Thornbury as they fit NOS systems.
But if Mtec are any good I can't see the point of driving there when I have a RR much closer.

Read a terrible write up on a Forum about Interpro :(
Also heard Mtec Automotive are not the best in the world.
Waiting for Circuit Motors at Combe to get back to me.
Any other locally anyone can think of?

Would love to be able to advise but I have only ever used the ones Sandy maps on down in Cornwall.

I believe Matt has used Circuit Motors before when sorting out his old carb'd 205.

I have spoken to Slark engineering in Amesbury today, he said the problem with NOS on a rolling road is that the power curve is vertical when the NOS come in and its hard to get a reading accurately.

Circuit Motors don't seem keen to run a car with NOS.

Mtec Automotive will run the car for £54 and the chap who does it has had NOS in his car.
I may just bite the bullet and let them do it.
Not too far to "Walk" to Neil's for a coffee if it all goes horribly wrong [-o<
I just need to check its not running lean or rich.

Yes I used circuit motors, they were spot on for carbs and a dizzy but not sure how good the are with modern electronic wizardry.

Thanks for that....
It least I will be able to dull the pain with laughing gas if it does :lol:


Was going to pop down to Tim Blakemoore racing in Kingswood for some gas on Friday.

Depends if I can leave our new puppy on his own.

All change again #-o
Circuit motors phoned this afternoon, they have no issues with a car running NOS and know the NOS supplier well.
So they will be doing the check on the RR on the 28th or 29th, depending on Gas.
£40 odd Quid :D

Circuit Motors did the deed today.
Running slightly rich with the gas on, which I don't mind.
Standard the FRP's were listed as 153 BHP, and as mine is standard except for a K&N panel filter and has 80K + miles on.
I wasn't holding out much hope of even mid 140's [-o<
Image
Image
159.7 BHP with out the gas'
198.8 BHP with :D

Paul, the operator was well impressed.
You can see the chart climbs quite steeply when the gas come in.

Roll on Classic action day :wink:

Very Very happy :D
The FRP's power range is about 150 bhp to one at 159, so for a high miler it very good.
We did have a bit of a mishap with the NOS the first run with it.
the TPS is playing up, so as soon as its armed, its on. I don't think he was at full throttle when he turned it on.
There was a bang and the air box exploded. #-o Second run at full throttle was fine.
I have just ordered a K&N cone filter, which I suspect will give a couple of BHP taking up to the magic 200 [-o<

Good results, hope you enjoyed the nervous experience of the mapping session?!

How is the power delivery? Bit like a sort of turbo lag?

Wasn't mapping, just a check on the mixture etc. Wanted to know my calculations were right.
I was aiming for 40 bhp, and got 39 :D
Goes slightly rich as the NOS kicks in before stabilising AFR at about 13.5
I've not used it yet on the road...
The throttle position activation switch is knackered and I want everything "right" before using it properly.
I've ordered a new one from the Wizards of NOS which should be here by the weekend.
I also have a progressive controller as the power was coming in very quickly, I've set that so I get 20 bhp instantly and the other 20 over 2 seconds.
Paul who was running the car up on the rollers, just said it was very impressive when the NOS came in as the power curve climbed so steeply and he could feel the extra power kick in.
First proper use will be the action day on the 30th. I'm intending to do one session as a tester for RS day.

Bring your crash helmet Alan, you gave me a ride in your green beasty. I will repay you for that.
