    Glad you have got to the bottom of the running issue, be interesting to see the graph post rolling road!
    If Carlsberg did Motor clubs, then IDMC would probably be the best motor club in the world.

    Think you saw my FB video Ben but the best run was run 5 at 97bhp which I got on video but not the screenshot:

    It's largely a standard engine apart from the original ENEM/Irmscher cam and a fresh build so happy with that. I am running the 30mm chokes which although great for high end, may prove a bit OTT for road use. As I haven't driven it much since it was done, I will see what Spring/Summer brings.

    I still have the Quaife ATB to install if I get round to it but again may drive it a bit more to see. I have done all my winter jobs so replaced the servo, sourced a better rear parcel shelf and sorted the rear washer that was a dribbler! I have a rev limiter to install, I want to replace the bonnet decal and now I have the original, correct brown fabric to go with my Daytona, I will be getting a spare set of seats retrimmed. Hopefully all done before VBOA 2018 (better still, Tatton).

    All sounds good.... Look forward to seeing the seats!

    The diff will make a big improvement for sure...

    ^^^^^ If you fancy a trip to Derby to help fit the diff, you are welcome. I am just scared to do anything on it now!!

    No pressure on the seats then. Hopefully found a good trimmer. ;-)

    Looks good. Where did you get the material?

    I managed to source a small roll of the original brown - long story and it came from a batch of material found in Europe. To my knowledge, it is the only correct and original brown found in recent times. The reproduction chequered material is available from CCS in Leicester.

    Good find! Are you doing the fronts aswell? If the reproduction is as good as original then this might de value original seats.

    Yes fronts are being done as well. Don't think values will drop as decent brown is still hard to find.
