    hey all, just got back from amd, had a very pleasent morning there chatting to the guys and people there, they showed us around the racecars aswell. they told me the car is very healthy for an old car has 0 fault codes and is running very well, it was a different story for alot of the cars there recently!
    They said that the cheap digital boost guage (race x) is miss reading and wants throwing, and that i'm running 1.3 bar. all in all im very happy and glad the torque is a bit lower for reliability reasons since jardo said 275bhp 275torques would be a nice balance.

    also ive noticed since fitting the fmic the water temp is dropping right down below 60 degrees when cruising at 70 on the motorway, if i boost around a little it picks up then drops back when i cruise again? all happens very slowly over minutes, needle not flying around...? during town driving she sitts at 90 deg

    fitted another boost gauge and she's now reading 21-22psi then tailing off too 18ish as the redline approaches so the gauge was ****e, no spiking at all...

    also bought a thermostat and some coolant, it didnt do it at all for the last hour of driving, seems to be only after 15mins of very light 70mph cruise?

    me and my friend went for a blast like car friends do after a remap returned and we was shocked after touching the alloy intercooler pipes (that stick through the bumper on mine) hot side felt warm cold side ice cold after a good run, epic that welly cooler! good advice people!-)

    Sounds about right!

    The joke at AMD is that it usually leaves cleaner than it arrives.......or that the real colour isn't white,but "off" white.

    Nothing like a big intercooler.....really does make a big difference when the boost is turned up....also fitted another boost gauge to mine,as the old one wouldn't go far enough round!

    Went as a spectator a couple of yrs ago.

    Couldn't believe the noise and smell of the Top Fuel cars......as to mine,I value the gearbox too much!

    I know it will comfortably deal with a V10 M5 and most of the AMGs,so it's good enough fun.

    The previous gauge was part of a NewSouth package of gauge and mounting pod but the gauge ran out at 25psi,and getting anything that goes above 2bar and doesn't look like something from The Fast and the Furious is hard work,until I found this one....

    Did you get a good look at the BTCC Honda....the detail on that is extraordinary,and Ben was explaining to me how much the parts on it cost,and what they run on the Golf,but the Golf isn't far off speed wise.

    Well what happened was, I was running revo stage 2 on a brand new K04. I then fitted a large port cylinder head, rods, new clutch, SMF, and an XS manifold. The injectors were maxed at this point so I was running a 4 bar FPR (only till my custom remap) and my WMI wasn't working. When I went to Inters I set the times in my signature.

    Last October I went to RTech for the custom remap (with 550cc injectors and working WMI) and the first run they did on the rollers without touching a thing it put out 260bhp.
