  1. Just got my s3 remapped at AMD today... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.
    258bhp and 285ft/lb t
    Very impeseed with result.
    While i was there i spoke to a guy who said that if you place a washer (3mm in his case)under the DV piston spring it can reduce lag due to the piston closing sooner.
    Will this work?

    its personal choice, but yes it can work.

    ive done it on mine and been fine

    it closes sooner with more of a snap and opens later.

    there is a guy in the states using 5mm spacer in his Forge, but so far i have(and other amd viper owners) used a 3 mm.

    i started off with washers , and then got some ally spacer rings made up at work, 3, 4, 5 mm but not tried last two.

    I might be, depends how far south and west it is really. I'm near Sheffield.
