    CS3 and Nitrous..

    Hello people, I have a CS2 kit installed at the mo in my Coupé Turbo and have achieved a 14.67 1/4 mile at best.

    If I was to upgrade to a CS3 kit and say a 60bhp direct port (15bhp per cylinder) nitrous oxide system and also get a Quaife LSD and Yoko street legal slicks, what 1/4 mile time would you predict?

    Traction permitting, I would say mid to high 13s. LSD and sticky tyres should help traction?

    *That's my next stage of tuning, hopefully within next couple of months..

    WOW that will be one seriously sorted coupe, The main problem you will have is traction, but Yes the LSD and so on would help but not much, no idea what your time would be but with all that torque it must be a good one. I would say around 12-13 surely.

    I'd be interested in your review/opinions on how the CS1 and CS2 improved performance. I.e. when you go the upgrade, did it make the coupe seem really a load more powerful? I too have a Turbo Coupe and have noticed that I've gotten used to the power. Thinking about an upgrade. Thanks in advance

    Personally I wouldn't risk it, not unless you upgrade your clutch, gearbox and turbo!

    Mshah,

    I went straight into a CS2, the main difference in power is at higher speeds, sitting a 60 on a motorway in 5th seems like you are in 4th when you floor the accelerator. I have noticed traction has got a lot worse at lower speeds but thats unavoidable. Hence why I was thinking about getting a LSD.

    Performance wise, standard 1/4 mile is 15.6

    I achieved a 15.2, when standard plus a piper induction kit.

    With CS2 fitted, I achieved a 14.67 1/4 @ 98 mph.

    I had mine done at Regals in Southampton. They are £600 ish for the clutch, and about £300 for fitting. So about £900 all in.

    Cant remember the exact rating for the Z20let clutch, but I think its about 250ish BHP. Matt Smith will know for sure !

    You'll run out of money tuning it before it goes I think
