    Also what BHP are you guys expecting?

    I'll be happy with anything over standard.

    So 150 BHP+

    Although I am hoping for about 157BHP as I've got the carbonio intake and CAT back exhaust.

    OK I'll have a think about it seeing as though you don't know where it is, and I've got sat nav and been there before.

    It would have to be Sandbach Services Northbound if I did decide to meet up with you guys though.

    4wd figures are only at the the wheels so i reckon about 60bhp tranmission loss for a s3 so i reckon around 300whp (approx 360 at the fly).I will probably go m1,a50,m6.

    So what sort of time is everyone aiming to get there for?

    I am hoping to be there about 10ish.

    Also just got my car back today after 2 weeks, and I've got an MOT tomorrow morning at 9AM. So I'm rushing round like a nutter at the minute LOL

    Hi Ryan,

    Good to meet you today, and JoJo and the other guy (sorry forgot your name mate).

    Was a shame you didn't make the numbers you were looking for Ryan. But I'm sure you'll get it sorted.

    I enjoyed the day. Especially your car, the supra, and Bills ibiza.

    Hey Al,
    How did your s3 get on?I know JoJo did a solid 200bhp at the wheels which is spot on for a chipped s3. Supra sounded great but didn't deliver the goods,bills was impressive 360atw and dan's 340atw was very good too.There was another ihi'd beezer that managed 280atw.I need to borrow vag-com anyone?

    Nice to meet some new people and put names to faces (adcopper, Ryanc and AL B). Also good to see Joe again.

    Yeah it was a good day, and I enjoyed watching the runs. Fav car of the day had to be Bill's IHI Yellow Cupra /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Not sure what power mine was putting out TBH. Should I be looking at clutch power or the other graph? As there are so many figures LOL

    Hi Ryan

    I didn't actually run my car today. But a couple of months ago I ran it on there when Awesome had a go at trying solve my car's hesitation problem. It produced 195atw, which I was pleased about. Standard car, not chipped.

    As a comparison, my MAF readings are usually about 185-189g/s...so divide by 0.8 gives about 236bhp approx. Still I wish I could get rid of this hesitation and surging.

    I have the graph, but just not scanned it in yet.

    Cheers

    Thats what i thought, but i brought it with only 500miles on the clock and i dont think its been messed with at all.

    Do you think that the rollers are inacurate or that my car is running too much boost / dodgey chip?

    Is there something wrong with my car?

    I don't think there is anything wrong with either off your cars.Have a look at boost pressure should be around 0.9bar standard.There seemed to be quite a few standard cars making good figures and i few high power ones making lower than normal figures??
