The car was running quite poorly and spend time at TVR Central, TVR Power and RT Racing in 2014, the consensus was to replace the flapper with a carb setup, and while the hotwire and what would have been Megasquirt or emerald had I got that far was not standard, was my preferred option so I moved the car to a Rover specialist.
