In my post the other day about the ECOTEC TR4, I mentioned a video. Got one to share – it is short and wobbly, but you’ll get the idea. Now, before we get started keep in mind a few things:
- Note how quiet the TR4 is. Video was made with the windows up and the aluminium hardtop in place.
- The engine has a redline of about 6500 revs. You can hear the engine spool up and the powerband is indeed very sweet!
- Some sorting out of the rear springs has to be made. The car is a little bouncy. The front is dead on, but a new set of rear springs has been ordered that will certainly make things even nicer
- The ECOTEC has a handmade header. It dumps into a 2.5″ pipe attached to a single baffled muffler and at the end a special made adapter with Supertrapp discs. The Supertrapps really are nice and enable fine tuning of how much exhaust noise you want. I think this one is spot on.
Well take a look…
I made this video with my iPhone4; it is not exactly great but you get the idea. Hopefully I’ll post a better video in the next few days.
Hope you found this interesting. The ECOTEC is indeed a very viable and excellent performing engine. You have comments? Questions? Sure would like to hear from you, just fill in the “Comment” box below.
