On the dyno.

A nice flat torque curve which is perfect.

Mighty impressive Brad! Looks an impressive combo, and I know if it's built and spec'd by Sleath it will very 'useable' on the street - great torque numbers :D

Shame those exhaust manifolds won't go into a Tiger engine bay, we are so limited with the restrictive nature of the engine bay size to extract exhaust gases - which sadly costs precious HP for us :(

Custom stand.

And a youtube video, pleased with the noise, the cam was worth it.

Very impressive Brad, I feel quite sorry for your rear tyres.
(hope you will send a copy of the printout to your Insurers !!!)

That's a greatvXmas pressie Brad, to yourself.... :mrgreen:

I wouldn't worry too much about the rear tyres Stuart, against the relative cost of the engine - tyres are a serviceable item :D

Brad, with all the horse power, don't forget to install a 'line lock' great for leaving a calling signature, as we did in September when we left our hotel in Spa. Belgium.

Harder than a schoolboy

What a fantastic clip! Chunky idle, great rev, what an absolute buzz. Love the way it just pulls through the load placed on it by the engine dyno. Sounds like you've picked a bloke who knows his stuff.
Nice.
Cheers, Tom

That oil filter will not fit a Tiger especially with Tiger headers.

Thanks Tom,
Took a while to settle on the spec, the heads help a lot & the custom cam grind was well worth it.

If ripping up someone's nice brick weave is the bad boys idea of fun, then I might fit right in 😀

I have some stubby ones for when the engine gets fitted.

N/S rear wing ready for welding.

Had a look at the front valance again, not sure whats happening with these bits but they look like they should turn in to the chassis section.

Martin,
it's the end part of that small curved section, on the forward part of the inner front wings, from the weld marks it looks like it should curve into the chassis much the same as the ruler.

I'll try to get some photos tomorrow for you if you like.
Anything you want specifically?
