Been up to Shark Performance today after being invited by N8.
I like to try new things when possible and have been chatting with N8 about a Shark Stage 1 map as they are local to me and he obviously rates them.
I've had bluefin on for a bit which was OK, a noticeable improvement but still not enough ( is it ever? )
So I went up to have a look round and speak to some people who have had work done by them.
There were lots of nice cars up there and the people were nice and friendly and had only good things to say about the guys at Shark which put me at ease and convinced me I had made the right choice. I was originally booked in on Thursday but lucky for me ben said he was able to squeeze me in so of course I dived at the chance.
On a personal note one of the highlights of the day was when Jules pulled up in his RS4 as they are my all time favourite car, then when he got out and the air suspension dropped it to the floor I could of 'let go' in my pants there and then! jules, if your reading mate I love your car! ( wish I had plucked up the courage to ask you to take me out in it lol )
Anyway, I wanted the STS box too so Ben copied the file from my car, then uploaded that and the 'Performance Map' as it's called on to the box and myself and N8 went outside to upload it, then we pulled out nice and easy to let the car warm up.
First impressions were good as I could already tell there was more pull from lower down which I mentioned to N8. As we were in town I didn't go above 4k revs but then as we headed out the road opened up to a dual carriage way so I announce "right, I'm going for it"! and put my boot down.
What I remember next is both me and N8 bursting out laughing and a big grin appearing on my face
The pull was awsome and the acceleration immense. The extra 'madness' I was longing for was there yet it still had the smoothness through to the rev limiter. The difference met with my expectations and then some!
When we pulled back into the yard I had a huge grin on my face and then had the thought of 'if this is what it's like straight away, whats it going to be like when it's settled'??
So I am very pleased with the map and have had a good day out.
Big thanks to N8, and Ben and his team
PS, that bird with the red hair had great tits!
PPS, Jules, Did i mention I love your car? lol
