    Exclamation To save any dissappointment on the day

    I think I`ll only just make it in time for PV.

    The last week will be manic, with the car being trailered to Bill Richards Racing for 4 wheel laser alignment, then for MOT and lastly a remap by Wortech.

    I wont be able to get enough miles on the clock to check everything is ok, so, I wont be taking her down the quarter, but I will do at a RWYB later on in the year.

    I`ll post up the date, so`s anyone wanting to come and watch can do so.

    Gutted for you mate, i know you was really looking forward to taking her down qtr mile, still better safe than sorry as you have put an awful amount of effort in.

    What BHP and torque are we going to be looking at then after the remap?

    Should be somewhere around 450 - 460 bhp and torque
