    Remus Race Pipe

    Ive just fitted one of these to my car and ive got 2 say im mighty impressed!!

    it sounds beautiful with my janspeed backbox

    But my fuel consumption has dropped to the low twenties? does the ecu recognise the car is breathing better or is there someway to reset it?

    i dont really know what im on about tbh! but i thort it was a bit of a dramatic drop!? y is this and is there anything i can do to get it back up a bit (except drivin like a grandad)

    cheers steve

    Sounds like your ECU just needs some time to adjust to the new system.

    I've bought one today, so i'm looking forward to fitting it!
    Sold my Astra to buy a house.

    Now drive a 205 GTI 2.0 16v

    Cheap and Chearfull!

    take the battery off the car for 1 hour this will re set the ecu mate
    then but the battery back on a go for a drive
    also give the pipe 2 weeks to coke up on the inside it will get better
    I was one of the first on hear to do this mod it got better after a few weeks
    it was burning all the way to PVS

    lambda sensor may have had a knock thats all
    try taking the battery off first to reset the ECU as its cheaper then a new sensor
