    RR'd the Turbo

    Today I had a rolling road event with the South Wales Region cheers to Daz and Aly for organising it.

    I was hoping to get power as close to standard as possible as I have not changed anything on the car at all so far as I wanted to have a benchmark starting figure and work from there. My target was anything over 190 bhp given the age and the mileage on her.

    Here are the dyno printouts photo'd.





    I was extremely happy reaching 195.6BHP and 183.9lbs ft torque from the car as its completely and utterly standard at the moment. This gives me a great starting point that I can push forward from. I am setting a personal target of reaching 250 bhp by the end of the Summer. So will have plenty more bits and pieces to add the the diary.

    Any way here are some other pictures of my car on the rolling road day.







    As well as a video for good measure. Enjoy!



    Overall a fantastic day and has encouraged me to get on with getting more jobs done to the car

    Well I'll probably go for vxr turbo, intercooler, exhaust full system, new air intake, remap and I'd imagine that would see me a fair bit closer to that. Going to look into it a fair bit more though.
