    So ive Fitted a full set of silicone hoses,
    TIP,
    3" downpipe and sports cat,

    Forge Recirc..

    Spoke to John at DNA who mapped the car 15months ago,and he said to come down,and he`d have a play with it..

    All i can say is WOW!!!! Such a differance now.. Car pulls so much harder through the revs,and feels alot more responsive...

    Power wise I am not sure... I have had a few issues in the development of my conversion which have presented a few challenges but after fitting the MBC and hopefully after next weekend when I plan to get the EGT issue sorted finally I will hopefully have ironed out most if not all the gremlins that I have had while doing the work...

    The times I have been on a dyno I have got figures of between 344 and 383 bhp but thats with the unresolved issues I have had which are now pretty much sorted. Once I have the large port head on and have done the rest of the little tweaky bits I hope to get at least 400bhp...

    Cost wise... well, lets say I have gone over my original budget a little... I haven't got an exact figure and tbh I am no longer counting... if there is something that I need to do or buy for the car then I generally just do it... I have evolved the original build over the past 8 months or so and I have been changing bits about to ensure that everything works together as it should... its never a case of just buying a load of bits, bolting them together and mapping as I have discovered since helping Bill out at the workshop...

    The cost of a BT conversion isn't cheap especially if you are paying for it to be done but I am really glad I did it and my car feels much stronger after the tweaks this weekend than it has done in a while so heading in the right direction (mostly to the pumps for more V-Power atm)...
