August '10: Look out for Shawn's bus moving up from 6th position in the
BWA Top 20 sometime soon as after a brief period of no activity he has had it tuned and dyno'd with amazing results!


With a chargecooler now added the dyno produced a result of 323 bhp, 264 lb/ft and 135mph, Shawn adds, these figures were gained with 1.2 bar/18psi boost and still with retarded ignition timing so there is even more in there!!


Shawn's current BWA best of 14.8752 was achieved with a poorly tuned engine that detonated a week later and with 60 bhp less than he now has so hopefully we should see quite an improvement next time out.
