This is off one of the local forums in the "Was it you?" section
Me and my mate were in his black evo 6 last week, waiting to turn out on to the bypass to go down towards fiveways.
Blue MG ZR comes up behind us. We turn out, laughing, Stu floors the evo, and.......................
The MG not only passes us but pulls away!!!!
We couldn't believe it!!!! Never seen anything go like it!!! Car is local cuz ive seen it around, looks like a standard ZR160 except for what looks like a cold air pipe sticking out under the front bumper.
It's obviously turbo'ed cuz the dump valve cracked when he changed gear alongside us, plus spitting flames and crackling noise, Stu said sounded like anti-lag.
Finally after 7 pages of debate and cack the real owner hears of the thread and posts...zr it just looks like any other zr only with black back windows isnt lowred or anything with standard 17`s
So basically 331bhp from a standard looking zr :w00t:olice:My car was built by P.T.S, using a rallycross derived block with forged internals and a trick turbo and managment set up, using an all steel bottom end and an external wastegate. Like most things on the car the boost is fully adjustable and the power is put down by a racelogic traction control system and our own antilag system. The suspension and brakes are the same as the set up used in the S2000 rally car. The car is mapped by ourselves monthly and on our dyno produces 331 bhp at the flywheel and 299 lb of torque. Sorry to bore everyone with the spec but I just thought i'd clear that up, Damien informed me about this thread after the evo driver offered me that race earlier tonight.
