Good number Dave. That's a bit more than I would have guessed, I was expecting it to come in around 140-150ish th:
Any intake mods yet?
I was expecting around 140 so it's a good result. Engine had good provenance though, having previously resided in the engine bay of a certain hershel orange RX2! Built using new plates, good housings and S3 rotating assembly.

Now if I was back home, I'd be getting someone to mod the nikki and massage the intake porting. Plan B will probably involve swapping the nikki out for something....... rdg
