Blimey, 43mpg from a 4 litre? My 3.5 V8 only manages 27mpg at the best of times, which I think is pretty good.

Unfortunately mine's not for sale! ;-)

And sound good too!

I admit that a V8 probably won't be the quickest round a track, but they make great road cars.

There's a guy I've been in touch with to help him fit the side screens but I don't think he's registered on here , although he did say he would do for info in general ---- he'd looked at the old site run by Don Love , where almost nothing happens from one month to the next or more :?
His name is Neil Boyle and he built a Stylus with a V8 supplied to him from Neville Powell / Babybertha(on this list) Basically Neville sold him an engine which he'd not stripped to check out but said it was a good engine . Cutting a long story short , Neil needed help with it so Neville went to help him , stripped it out , only to find that it had a very high spec' head,cams etc etc . So my bet is that it will be the highest bhp and torque Stylus around / 300 ish :roll: ---- just guessing (Neville regretted not having a peep first though -- it was a cheap engine :lol: )
Great for Neil though :lol:

Last time i spoke to Tim i was thinking of putting one of these in mine very light 110kgs, http://www.pistonheads.com/pics/news/19 ... -eng-t.jpg he advised against it as the chassis's limit was about 300hp IIRC, although he said he could make a chassis from thicker material, so there must be a few people pushing the limits of the chassis out there.
Must try harder

One of my fellow competitors is putting a stretched 2.3 --- making a 2.5 lt Duratec with ultimately 320bhp minimum , developing upwards , into his standard chassis Westfield :roll: he reckons it'll stand it 8) Going by that I'd say the Stylus chassis is stiffer so would stand a similar load of grunt .
The reason Tim would have advised against would probably be because he believes in the Colin Chapman approach ---- light car plus light smallish engine/power gets the job done :?:
Trackwise he's spot on but plenty of builders enjoy other things about their cars so up to a point ------------------ stick it in there :lol:
