After 2 months of preparation, this was the first time we started the engine. The trumpets and carbon airbox had not been fitted at this stage. It came as a complete package (fully rebuilt / tweaked) from Longmans and was one of the actual engines used in the Vic Lee 306 BTCC cars back in 2001/02. Fresh off their engine dyno at 274bhp - although a bit of "on road" mapping was required post installation to fine tune the map and iron out a few flat spots.
