    What a difference

    Had the remap etc a while ago now which has been well worth it, the car pulls much better and is much more fun to drive but because of its smooth power delivery you dont realise just how much quicker it is.

    I havnt really been up against anything to test it until the weekend when i raced my mate in his coraddo VR6, before any mods we were the same sort of speed, now, what a difference :shock: the car is now in a different league pulled away from him with ease and even he couldnt believe the difference, money well spent i thinks

    Yea definatly mate,

    The pull is a lot harder but the car still manages to get the power down really well due to the smooth delivery off power. Ive driven a 240 bhp 1.8 T and when the turbo kicked you didnt half know about it and the car would grab for grip. With mine its a sustained strong pull more than a massive burst, thats why its hard to know just how quick the car is.

    Its a much better car to drive, it really is a good feeling when you plant your foot it just pulls

    JISGO, did AmD advise you to take off your dump valve and return to the recirc mate?

    IIRC weren't they relating that to the boost sensor out of range problems?? could be wrong :?

    Also mate, what are you boosting at now?

    what stage of remap did you have mate?

    perhaps if we ever get enough people to have a meet or something, you can take me for a spin so i can see the difference!!
