15-02-2005, 13:45
well............ been for a blast, idle is getting better only stalls every now n then, but.... 1st/2nd/3rd gear pull much harder right to limiter lol love that, not done over a ton as yet, but it does feel faster

can sit in 2nd at 15mph and plant it, it fcuking flys to 60 lol :D

it dont seem to kick as much just seems smoother from 2k rpm to the limiter

also in the dry sat in second mid power about 3k rpm just plant it and it wheel spins lol

next.... ECU REMAP!!!

15-02-2005, 13:54
you think its quick now...wait till its remapped.

and do you not need to let the new cams bed in our anything?


15-02-2005, 18:35
well i did the initial bedding in like it says 20mins at 2500rpm etc need decat back on and magnex backbox to fit, gonna run it as it is bar zorst changes see how it goes, still not 100% sure if timing is spot on or not
