    Poor RR results - expert help needed!

    I just got back from Jam Sport for a RR day with a car club and had very poor results.

    Heres the list of mods:
    - VXR turbo
    - After market IC
    - front decat pipe
    - 2.5 inch cat back exhaust
    - 1.9cdti air box + filter etc

    With out the 1.9 box and cat back the coupe made 226bhp at Courtenays back in April, today it made 174bhp / 201lbft which quite frankly is rubbish.

    The guy at J/S said it was something to do with fueling?? he didnt pull the fuse for the Traction Contol but some how made the abs/tc light come on on the dash? I did ask for the fuse to be removed but he said he would get round it?!

    Heres a photo of the graph, top line bhp:


    On the road the car feels as strong as ever and as far as im aware has no issues what so ever, surely i would notice any problems like the above whilst driving out on the road?

    So experts whats you advice ont he above results?

    Fuse needs to come out. Mine made 160bhp without the fuse, then made 213bhp with fuse out.

    this is what I said, they didnt pull the fuse but he some how made the tc light etc come on and stay on untill i started to drive home! so basically Iv used £50 in fuel and paid £35 for the dyno run and its been a waste of time because the bloke wouldnt yank the fuse out?

    I would complain and get your money back, you told him what he had to do and they didnt so they should refund you.

    Im still working out if that was the problem, not pulling the tc fuse is my theory but im waiting for some experts to give advice before sorting anything out.

    easier said than done im home now, courtenays is just down the road but its not cheap for a quick run lol, im hoping from the information i have posted including the graph someone will be able to tell me if its down to the fuse not being remove.

    also what the hell the bloke did to get the tc/abs light on the dash to light up?!
