Alan and Roger at Aldon's did a professional job (as ever) in setting up the DTA system on their dyno.
It is also worth mentioning that the DTA software allowed the setting up to be performed fairly easily.
The power figures shown below were a bit dissapointing as they were less than we hoped for, however, when compared with the 5.0 litre engine the increase in power and torque above 4500 rpm becomes clear when looking at the curves shown below.
