Looking forward to the results of this. Can you tell us a bit about the tests themselves & who carried them out. Were there any vested interests?

Cheers

Ian

hey riva, any chance you could pm with some info on the engine tests - went out on my 7.8 together with Nick B on his 7.8 today on charter - the 250 etec on his blew mine out the water - thinking about chopping my yammy in for something with a bit more poke but would be nice to know the best option b4 I think about hemoragging the best part of 15k.
