You could run with or without the scoop, but my S1 definitely ran cooler with it fitted

My car was originally delivered without the scoop. CooperMan, you state that your S1 ran cooler with the scoop, but did it run better? I think it has been said here (by DaveW, I believe) that the S1 actually ran better without the scoop. I have always been puzzled that my Roadster was without the scoop, I even thought about having one made but discarded the idea as nobody could confirm any advantage. Theoretically - yes, but behind the wheel no. Comments, anybody?

All those who join the register are asked to agree by e mail who can get their details and what. I have a master s/sheet & a redacted version The redacted version is sent out by BCC to those on the register.
I understand the concerns & Peter if you son wants to comment I am happy.

I always ran my S1 with the scoop. So I can't help

FWIW I customised the Torque Lite app to display both ambient and inlet air temperature displayed via Bluetooth OBD2 hookup. The two concurred within a couple of degree's except when stationary. The latter then shot up quite a bit, being at the rear of engine. I do have an air inlet mod John, shown below if interested.

Richard,
lets talk on Sunday. Something like that is on my winter to do list. The inlet seems very small & also right by the manifold in standard design.

Robbie, I sold my S1 over two years ago & all my data & tests went with it, it it helps, a reliable source told me the MMC parts dept had a pile of unfitted 'spare' scoops, indeed I had to purchase one as it was missing from the car originally

Our series 1 Roadster was among the very first to come out of the factory. it was originally supplied without a scoop but one was later supplied as promised by MMC.

At the same time the engine was treated to a re-flash to "Red Spot Level". Does anyone anything about this spec?

Never heard of that. Although Librands sold an ECU flash that is no longer available.

Hi John,
Just catching up with your change to a Brooklands and starting the register. I hope that it goes well for you and the owner/members.

The Roadster 100 Register is 10 years old this year and despite not ever being able to find out the actual number built (57 or 63 ?) I have been made aware of the locations of 56 of
them so far and we have 46 owner members on the register.

Early on when the new data protections rules were introduced I decided to implement asking members to agree and most, not all, did but no one objected.

As you will probably find going forward, while agreeing to be on the Register, not many communicate despite us using an all members only group email system similar to MogTalk.

Keeping tabs on the cars is also a tad difficult as most members don't let me know when they sell. Most dealers who have sold since we started now put an invitation Flyer in their
sales pack giving quite a high number of new owner members. Richard Thorne has the last Members car to come to market.

Perhaps when you have grown, you may become more influential than I in getting Brooklands to re introduce an annual Morgan Day with your line in prime location in the paddock.

Best Wishes
Frank work
