    This is an older article (2008) and I don't think Moss offers Superchargers any more, but the chart ( toward the bottom) with various rear wheel HP numbers is pretty interesting.

    Good read Jim, I wish they had a 0-60 time for the triple webered version

      That's a good read. And i read one of the other articles about tuning a TR6 engine. I was surprised to see how much more power they got out of the c ar with tuning. 0-60 in 8.4 seconds with just shaving the head, a GP 2 cam and some polishing? That's 5 seconds quicker than they recorded for a worn out stock motor. That's huge. Here's what I read https://classicmotorsports.com/articles/six-pack/

      and another https://classicmotorsports.com/articles/make-it-sing/

        Didn't see " Webers " but only " triple carbs " and it shows higher HP than the supercharged ones. There's " carbs " and there's Webers

        Never was willing to flog my TRs off the line as necessary to effect a real 0-60 test. I got my driver '250 to beat the TR5 1/4 time by half a second but was gentle taking off so 0-60 was over 9 seconds. A good thrashing of the clutch might have got me another 1/2+ second easily.

        A gent in his late 70s local to me gets over 200 BHP at the wheels with his supercharged TR6. The engine was done by a genuine engine guru close to his age ( Bonneville Salt Flats regular ), including the cam profile. Triple Weber 45s on 2.7 liter TR6s have attained the same. Neither recipe would I consider destined for a long life.

        150 BHP for 100K+ miles can be readily had though with Weber 40DCOEs and the factory CP cam. Good enough for most TR6 lovers I think. For me, it's TR6 Nirvana ( well, TR250 Nirvana anyway ).

          Good catch Tom...I was assuming that the triples were Weber’s, but as they say, never assume
