    Ok... bad news first...

    Picked the car up this morning installation went well. All done.

    Started with a 25 BHP injector and that was fine. So upgraded immediately to the 50 BHP injector... and that was fine.

    However, it was noted that the Nitrous Oxide bottle was running at low pressure (it was too cold overnight). So we warmed it up to around 1000 psi....

    So the bad news is that it blew my clutch on the rolling road measuring over 400 Lbft torque at the wheels at the START of the boost run. So I couldnt get a rolling road graph to show you as it just wont hold the power on the Dyno.

    Yeah.. brand new uprated 6 Paddle Racing Clutch installed March 2011, only covered around 5000 miles

    Apparently its not the clutch itself, its the diaphragm or something not holding the pressure needed??
