It puts out 190bhp, then a BIG shot of NOS gets it to 330bhp... I believe Ian Nixon may have tuned it (used to own Europarts)

With the 1.4 C1J, it has to be Stuart Clarkes, uknown power but it traps at 120mph+ at pod & runs 11's all day, best is 11.2 i think.

Without C1J (clio 172 turbo with 1.8 crank, massive spec) ...Scoff, runs low 11's & i reckon maybe 10's next year on the right day.. traps around 125mph i think & 11.1 is lowest i think..

Can't check as RTOC seems to be down..

IIRC stu's is believed to be 340+ but has never been dyno'd as it went off the last rollers at 340bhp

Yeah, it popped the gasket last time at pod, was trying it with a shot of NOS as well but wasn't hitting any better times....

It gets trailored to & from events..... so not a road car..... TBH, my old car when i had it was one of the highest BHP road cars IN USE daily AFIAK ( running 24psi manifold i reckon it was 220/230 bhp), there are others that are running over 200 on the road but not many, alot of people 'think' they have alot of power & don't... the lack of carb emptying tells me this.. But i was constantly monitoring the gauges so not really an ideal road car that you can jump in & drive hard, it was tuned to within an inch of breaking, lol....

James car (was), Marky Bs car, TNE Ghostrider is supposed to be pretty nippy..... are a few off the top of my head over 200 on the road... there are a few more on RTOC as well.
