see bhp / torque readings with vag-com.
didnt really wanna post this of fear of my life but...
for a laugh me n me mate fitted a Sanspeed tuning (bexley tuning company) large cone filter to the car to see how bad/good it ran as i wanted more audioable spool up noise chatter ect. And dispite what i was expecting im actually quite suprised. The noise is what i want and it flutters well. (yes i know chav blah blah change the record) The best thing about it, the MAF problem i had from de-meshing it (so i thought) has gone. it now boosts higher 9- 10 psi, no more hesitation and seems to pull higher into the rev range. im going to leave this filter on i think. the bottom part of the O/E ait box for now i have left on. the flat sensor thingy is tucked underneath it to keep cold and all is well. The heat soak part of it i have not noticed after being sat in traffic for 20 mins but i will be adding one of these to be safe..
and one of these...
the cone will sit diagonal just behind the battery with the point of the cone facing down where the O/E intake pipe sat. This will stop it getting soaked, and will stop any heat soak i would think.
Hence i would like to know how to read and log the bhp/torque readings so i can show all you lot the gains against my last set up. (smoothed O/E box with performance panel filter)
i know im gonna get rinsed now hence i wanna have proof its an improvement.
