Lot's of lovely cars displayed here on DW and I thought I'd seen the best when, sorry I can't remember the member, posted up pic's of a beautiful Lancia Delta Integrale a few months ago but I must say Andy, you car is truly stunning.

That's the most stunning car I have seen in many a year.

You lucky lucky man.

The rolling road may have been reading a bit low anyway - twin 44s on a 2 litre pinto should be 120 bhp quite comfortably. It also makes a cracking intake noise, which always helps the perception of speed
104bhp does sound a bit low (unless the reading was at the wheels) which equates to approx 120bhp at the flywheel. The standard pinto with one twin choke weber carb produces 100bhp. With the carbs, as long as they are jetted correctly and your ignition and cam timing is bang on you should be seeing 120-130bhp at least. A bit of headwork, high lift cam, adjustable vernier pulley and a tubular manifold you should be good for 150-160bhp.
