Wow.. that is cutting it fine for Dinlaken Phil Surprised fingers crossed for you...but as you say, it is in good hands and will be well worth the wait by the sound of it!

Really interesting about the fabspeed intake, and a shame because it looks and sounds so good! Is the power down by enough to ditch it completely? I'd be tempted to keep it if it was only a couple of bhp!

Grin Thumb Rob you and I think alike and I had already said that to Wayne , if its only a couple of BHP or its down at the top end I would keep the fabspeed .he hasn't replied yet I am guessing he's still recovering from being asked to fit something that reduces power Floor Floor

I have never met Wayne, but talking to Grant at Hartech when my engine was being rebuilt about getting a remap to compensate for the Agency Power air filter, they recommended Chipwizards, but warned me he would probably recommend i removed it!

Phil - fingers crossed you get the car back for Dinslaken.....

Am intrigued by the air-filter bit....
1) I wonder if its a limiting factor, with your car, as you have other tuned items on there, but may not be a limiting factor on a stock engine (no idea if thats true/possible)?
2) Did they try a standard OEM filter in the air-box or purely the BMCs in the airbox (am asking selfishly, as havent decided whether to swap the new filter the OPC just put in, for another after-mkt panel filter).

As has been said above, I would trade a BHP or two at peak power for better noise....be really interesting to see the shape of the power/torque curves

Have to commend your commitment (and Hartech's etc) to do the best by the car.....its a learning experience for all of us.

Well, there is the old saying "if it ain't broke, then don't fix it" but Phil's car was not well in the first place.... Apparently it was feeling blue!

Gents, just been told the cars now back with Hartech ,so finally the mappers done his bit. he did tell me that it took him a age to set up as it had already got a remap and he said it was not a good one Surprised his words were typical dangerous guess work reflash running far too lean under load and far to advanced Surprised but he hasn't given me any dyno numbers yet has just said its now set up properly and now gone quiet again as he's very busy . So will have to wait and see what Hartech say when they have finished the last couple of bits of testing they needed to do . hopefully I am picking it up on Thursday and really hoping its this Thursday and no other Thursday Grin Grin From what I understand Hartech need a day or so on it . on the plus side picked up Jimbos 6.2 Ltr Cayman with him on Saturday OMG what a beast that is Floor Floor
