That's the fun. I'd hoped to get in to the 11's, but the pedals are too close together to comfortably load the converter. Stock converter is quite tight, so even on idle it wants to push the car forward. A higher stall converter and lower gearing would see a big improvement as would a decent cam, but this is really an engine out job, and I really don't want the hassle. Easy option is to bung in a crate LS3 :D
Still, I'm beating cars with 450+ bhp, 4 wheel drive and launch control, so it can't be bad :D .

I think I'll investigate that over the winter - a cheap option anyway :D My only fear is that it doesn't release at the critical moment. I'd also considered a NOS kit, but that brings it's own problems. To have used NOS today (18 runs) would have cost me over £150 for gas for a 150 hp hit :shock: Cam kit is around £500 and about £800 for a decent converter, but I'd probably want to do the heads as well, so that's another grand+. Speed ain't cheap, and it drives nice as is.

I could get a crate LS3 with 480 hp for the price of a supercharger install. A friend was selling a secondhand edelbrock charger kit for £5k :shock:

The 'it's only a Morris Minor' doesn't work after a while :D Light weight and great traction are it's big advantage.
