    My day at Regal

    Set off at six yesterday morning, ( -6.5 outside temp ) we got there at about 8 ish left the keys with chris had a chat about what he was going to do, which was new FMIC and software upgrade to Phase 2 . so we left it in his capable hands while we went and had breaky in the cafe round the corner, went back to regal in the afternoon being bored shitless and freezing ( walked around B&Q for an hour to keep warm ) they finished the car at 4 then they road tested it then stuck it on the rollers and it got 251 BHP and 311 lb/ft Torque .

    Got to say they worked very hard on my car fitting the FMIC and Chris and karen were very helpful and informative, also chris told me about some new airbox soon for Zlet cars

    The drive home was awesome so much torque had to peel my ears off my headrest when we got home

    Why not just do the 2.2 airbox mod?

    Due to the temperature of the AMM after a long run, that is not advisable considering the amount of times they go wrong.

    I spoke to Courtenay about the 2.2 airbox mod, and as Chris mentioned they didnt recommend it due to problems with heat.

    Hurry up with the pics please Im looking forwad to getting mines remapped hopefully in the next week or so.
