    back from Red Dot!!

    just got back from red dot, achieved 243bhp and 334ft/lbs! and increase of 50bhp and 130ft/lb :-o
    the car feels amazing, much smoother and pulls wayy stronger! fuel consumption has also got better. was suprised that the first run only made 194bhp with all the mods i have on but owell dnt matter now :-D

    the mods i have are standard turbo, 2.5" cat back, precat removed, enlarged tophat, 1.9 airbox, beesons intake, and FMIC

    was expecting slightly more BHP but was verry suprised by the increase in torque! that more than makes up for it.

    would defo reccomend Red Dot to anyone!

    after
