    Custom-Code quote 270-275bhp on a Phase One!
    I'll be happy if mine's 250 too, certainly feels like it anyway.

    The newest 8L is 7 years old so some of the power has to have been lost over the years,think if we presented a car with 225 bhp and no leaks/wear on the internals of the engine we would end up with what the tuners quote.

    yes uprated dv does sound like the way forward. Also drove it today and found i was getting no kick off the turbo, then when i used it again, it felt fine. Not sure on the exact workings of these, but could be N75? hopefully it was a temporary glitch

    hmm, perhaps not temporary, its happened a couple more times now, and the exhaust manifold is getting seriously hot and glowing. surely a faulty diverter valve cant cause this.

    when it does it, it sounds like the pressure is going somewhere else other than into the engine.
