    hi m8, thought you was due there on 22nd???
    anyway hope it all goes well...... give me a pm when its done, want to see what you made!! :)
    finally fitted my fmic yesterday!!!! all in all, took us around 7 ish hours to do, core was bloody hugh!!! lol
    i dont seem to av lost much psi, was kind of expecting to loose like 3-4psi with the size but looks like it doesnt make it to peak anymore (19) but can usually make 16-17 still, which is what it ran before, but i have noticed that the boost doesnt seem quite as aggressive!!
    did you notice any difference when you fitted yours???

    I was going to mention the thread title all in capitals, but someone already editted it to Lower case :p

    caps are shouting. You sounded angry.

    Hope it's going well! 229bhp/264lbft is my guess!

    Yes Kev, although, you must remember that peak figure isn't likley to change a huge deal due to the way the ko3S delivers it. You could be making 221bhp at 14psi across the range, or 221bhp peak at 14psi at the top end, with the turbo spiking 21psi in the midrange an an extra 60lbft of torque.

    a ko3S will struggle to hold 14psi at the top end, usually more like 12 or so typically.

    Well the traffic is that bad today guys thought I rather get there and sleep I'm totally knackerd and my results for today will be told to those at ace cafe!!



    Haha nah I'm not that cruel!!

    Righty I'm now running 221bhp with 250ftlb torque and car feels so alive and rapid boost is about 1.4-1.5 bar but speaking to nick about more power he said its just best to go the k04 turbo route and do I will start saving for this now but will enjoy my new leash of power for the momment so I'm over the moon!!

    Yeh, i know my hybrid will hold more than 1bar to the redline, but i'll be dialling in ~1bar flat throughout the rev range, so its a fair approximation of what mine will make, hence the question.

    I'd have liked 230 (as that would be a nice round 50hp increase) but i suspect i'll be struggling to make that on the standard intercooler and exhaust.

    I don't see that being a huge issue kev, my daily made 224 at Bills on a ko3S, with the standard SMIC and standard catback, just a downpipe. that was on an Rtech stage 1 map. Your hybrid on a custom tune should see 230 easily I'd think.

    If a ko4 hybrid is the future, why are you only getting a ko3 hybrid ;) it'd save your downpipe issues for sure!

    muhahahahaha.

    Bobby: Are you at Rainbow carwash next to Ace? can you ask when they shut please?
