    Talking 8 hours on the road and well worth it.

    I went to Courtenay today for the CS4 upgrade. I left my house 4.30am to get there for 8.30 and didnt leave there until 7pm with other 4 hour drive home.

    Great buch of guys at Courtenay and I have no complaints

    end result was

    287.6 @ 5635rpm Bhp
    329.7 @ 3580rpm Torque

    it pulls like a train and foot down in 5th @ 80mph is just mad with it hitting 24psi

    the drive how found that the baileys didnt like light throttle so that came off this morning but you can really hear the standard one now so no big loss.

    Had a couple of plays but the most funny was C20LET Mk3 astra close to my local area which I let pull along side and then I just left him lol

    80mph to 140mph is a joke, it picks up so fast now lol.

    As for the dump valve I might try what Mike Warner has done and relocate it to the front just after the intercooler. That way it will be behind the front grill to scare old people haha
