Hello chaps. Hope you can help me.
I took the car to a local organised rolling road day on Saturday. I'd never been to one and was looking forward to seeing what it was putting out, however, I was more interested in the graph as I'm aware that it's not exactly been running the way I want it.
It's a 2002 BAM engined car and when I bought the car the only engine mods that I was aware of was an unknown map, and the cats opened, gutted and rewelded. Since I've owned the car I've put on a Forge 007p, Badger 5 TIP, a K&N panel filter and replaced the original air filter box with another one which had been drilled.
Not long after I got the car I ran a few logs on VAGCOM and posted the results on here. This was before I installed the Badger 5 TIP and you guys helped me decifer the results back then at approx 256bhp, so I was a bit disappointed with 243bhp on the rollers. The logs also showed that it wasnt hitting requested boost.
The graph shows a few spikes low down the revs. Any thoughts on where I should start looking for issues?
Is the torque curve typical of a stage 1 remap? I always thought it was quite an aggressive map to what I'd like.
First thoughts in respect of the spikes are a tired actuator. I've looked for boost leaks on the higher up pipes and not found anything. Still need to check lower ones.
Finally, I'm wondering if I should consider replacing the coil packs. A month ago the car started misfiring on startup, only if I've left the car a week or so in the garage. After about 15secs it stops.
I'm going away for a week at the end of the month and leaving the car at a friend's to get a downpipe made up. I'm thinking I should get the rest sorted out whilst it's off the road.
Anyways, here she is
Thanks in advance.
