FYI the NA Evora does about 9mpg on track. In the SC VX I guess I was getting a bit more than Steve, only because he was going too fast. Thanks to everyone for helping with my misfire issue; particularly Steve for swapping coil packs, Joe for gapping the plugs (:lol:), Sutol for the advice, Martin for the (wrong) plugs and Wrightstuff for the obd help. Proper team effort...love you guys, but make sure you fix it next time ;) Still dunno what the problem is...

Thanks Joe - what does the 1290 refer to? Regarding the misfire: http://www.vx220.org...load/?p=1919807 thumbsup By the way, what hose do i need for the short vacuum hose off the supercharger?

Can be done from the top if you have nimble enough hands and right size ratchet. Baby talc sometimes helps as a temporary fix 👍so now you have another use for it 😄
