    rolling road

    i had my car on the rollers today for a power run cant say im pleased with what i have seen. 1.8 t sport with full system including decat, induction kit new plugs and oil change. was expecting more than 144 bhp wot you think?
    o yea and ive got a really bad missing when i floor the car and it pops and misses like mad plus i have black smoke when on full throttle piston rings worn but ok seens as the car has done 125000 miles.
    people who have never found love should buy an audi 1.8 turbo.

    If the rings are worn and you get missing and black smoke then I'd be happy with 144bhp. As they are only 150 new and can vary a bit anyway losing 6 hp from the quoted figures isn't that bad. None of the mods that you have one will give any real gains on the standard map, they may give a gain if the car is remapped and those taken into account but I doubt it.
