Your post comes up blank for me.

Works fine for me. Change browsers to see if it works. I use Opera most of the time.

Appears WL no-longer plays nice with Safari ???

On a modern V12 engine only producing 500bph ........... the only word I can come up with is anemic.
Not so super in my eye. Hell, I have a pedestrian Japanese V6 car that is pushing 345 at the rear wheels.

Back in 2004 500HP was ok. the Ferrari F1 only pulled 400HP, the Ferrari 575 M Marcello had 515HP, the Viper had 500HP, the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra had 390HP and the Aston Martin Vanquish ran at 460 with a supercharged version running at 520HP.

Anything more than 265 HP is unnecessary.
The exact hp of a 4.2 litre E type. :Thumbsup:

You are correct. In triple 2" SU carb form. Much less with two strombergs. . ..
