    Sorted Heat-Soak!

    I've been get increasingly angry about how much heatsoak I was experiencing.

    When it was at Forge having its intercooler put on and dyno'd etc, I showed about a 7bhp loss, between repeat runs.

    This was also really noticeable when driving on the road, the car lacked urgency after prolonged lively driving.

    So bearing in mind whilst on the dyno the turbo was glowing bright orange......thought i'd better get around to it.

    So luckily, I still had the heat shield sat around from when I bought my P-flo, I only left it off as i was to impatient...

    So I fitted it on this morning, a little fiddly, being careful not to drop nuts/bolts/washers anywhere, it was done.

    You know that feeling where you switch on the car in the morning and go for a blast and it feels very lively?

    This is now with me ALL OF THE TIME.

    I've thrashed it everywhere today, Its feels like a different animal now.

    This is saying something, particularly as today is about a really hot day 23 degrees.

    Heat is a massive issue, and i don't think its one addressed enough if I'm honest.

    So for those of you in the same boat as me, and quickly rush to put your CAI on, really do put the heat shield on.
