    Been to mid point garage today in cheshire

    Well as title and as some of you know i wanted to find a good place to get my car on the rollers to have it tested and make sure all was good with the setup, so some people recomended MPG so decided to go there, so got there around 10.30 and greeted by Ian the owner who had lots of time for me as i had alot of questions, so the car went on the rollers and first time it made 203.4bhp which i thought was ok for a std car but Ian said it wasnt boosting properly as it was dropping off, he had a play and next run was 212bhp, so then we talked and I decided "or he talked me into lol " a remap and fitment of my intercooler, vxr injectors and colins actuator so we came to a deal as i had the remap done today for std intercooler etc and will go back on monday for the rest to be fitted and the map tweaked. so the final figures came out at 251.7 bhp and 292.7 lbft torque the map feels quite hard at first then it seems to pull again right through, very happy with the service so far and am back there on monday for the rest of the bits to be fitted.

    one thing i noticed on the way home was the car was missing i have the cossie plugs in so rang Ian and he told me to put the old ones back in and now the car is good again, I know people on here are using the cossie plugs but i think they need gapping smaller as in my engine with the map it was causing it to missfire and hold back so i will try this and put them back in to see how they go

    Ian's a top bloke,

    Nw/Nw/Staffs is organising a RR day their on the 26th. im strongly debating a remap too. but im thinking of holding back till full exhaust is fitted and intercooler is on.

    what was his price for supply and fitting the intercooler?

    the Clutch will not like a bit jump in power on that one they are smaller then the LEH ones that take a lot more power
    see if you can get a LEH clutch an fly wheel
