    out of interest, how accurate are regals power gain claims?

    Im just curious, Ive just been having a browse at regals phase upgrades and noticed the engine Im putting into my van, with the intercooler and 63m piping which I already had makes it stage 3 and apparently 270hp ish?

    Seems ambitous to me, what have you lot seen from a stage 3 upgrade in terms of power?

    .....and how many are proved on 'other' rolling roads.....

    But as has been said many times it's how it drive improves, not the pub figures !

    ah fair play then, I was expecting people to be saying their cars were making less to be honest.

    Anyone know if the map needs to be updated for a 10 litre front mount?

    its easy to trick cars into feeling quicker with the electronic throttle position sensor. Shortening 100% throttle to just a slight touch.

    Its all about taking it to an independent rolling road after!! They have nothing to prove...
