i was talking to a guy that has a Kleemann sc for sale at the Nurburgring he has a garage there then I spoke Claus at Kleemann who said they wonít supply parts and that I should buy new. I didnít want that plus it might be to much power

Iíll have the new tensonier next Thursday then Iíll do a video. I canít wait to get it on the dyno but first I need to get the headers made and coated as the old OBX headers are warped and leake. Iíve had it with trying to get headers the only way is to have them made. The guy doing it worked in motorsport Angie will charge around £1200

Seems like you are down on power since the 43 motor makes 302 BHP, figured you would be at least @ 350 BHP with the 55. Either way, awesome build, cant wait to see the results!

I also have a set sitting around since 2012 but have never got the courage to fit them. Probably afraid to break something in the fuel rail, injectors or connectors somewhere

This is wheel horsepower versus the 302 being crank horsepower. A C43 makes ~240-245 horsepower at the wheels stock. Assuming equivalent drivetrain loss (as a percentage), 320 wheel horsepower works out to roughly 400 crank horsepower.

He said BHP in both of his posts, not WHP

Is that an engine dyno or a chassis dyno?
