I had the 4:1 ratio - which was fab. I was getting 167 bhp and increased torque. Somewhere on here is the dynroad before/ after comparison. I did send it down to Omex who helped with the new ecu you get with the kit,

If I could have kept this 4/4 I would have- but I couldn’t- revving the nuts off it and throwing it around was fun.

Sound of TBs vs V8 side exit?.

I love the speedster..hence driving round in myP4SS in all weathers with aeroscreens or cut down screen.


I tend to agree with you regarding the 4/4. Remap, full sports exhaust system, panhard rod and probably my best mod, the competition rear axle ratio (4.1:1.?) . The Aero Racing TB kit was expensive, raised the power to 154 bhp but I never found the improvement in torque was that impressive. It did sound glorious though.....🤓

I should NEVER have traded that car in for the Roadster 🙄

Never say never again, John. Where there is space in your heart for an exquisite vintage car, there can also be space for a beautiful 4/4. Then you can equip it as the first 4/4 should be. And with the Madza transmission even the longer rear axle ratio works very well. Who knows...

If one has TB's bolted on then to set them up it requires an RR session and while there might as well change cams to something more lively and have a re map and side exhaust and freeflow manifold which these people will do and would offer a discount !! Panhard rod could be a DIY fit after returning from RR ?
