    nice wheels /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    if you want to win a sound off the first thing i would do is ditch the caps mate - did you do the install yourself or was it done by a vendor?

    Saw you tonight mate, and I've got to say it's looking good.

    I was on Burton car park in my Mates Black Punto Turbo, and you drove through.

    Oh yeah did you buy it done up? As one of my mates seems to remember one similar for sale in Cannock.

    Or there is the Exide one which is supposed to be pretty good.

    I will be getting two Yellow tops for mine when I finally get around to install the £6K's worth sitting in my cupboard out of my old car LOL

    What are you after an SQ or a SPL car?

    I prefer SQ, well that's why I have got all my kit.

    1.6 sport and ur getting 147bhp with nos

    wow, what bout without nos?

    i didnt no u can do stuff with 1.6! Shall i buy another 1.6 lol

    [/ QUOTE ]

    147 BHP from a 1.6 is not that impressive...even 147 without the laughing gas isn't that impressive.

    You can tune any engine using basic principles...with careful prep 100BHP / litre should be achievable without the use of 'cheating' gas.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    the caps will actually put more of a strain on your system, therefore voltage drop will be heavier, resulting in more chance of the amps going into clip

    running 0 guage (if you havent already) to the rear would be the best thing to do

    be careful if you go the split charge route as this will have an effect on what class you will be in if/when you compete - thats if you're competing in dBdrag?

    best advice i can give is if you're really serious about competing build the install to the rules (number of drivers, number of amps, split charge - all these will have an effect) and also get to know someone with a termlab sensor (if possible) as this will be your best way of you knowing how loud you are and what frequency you peak at

    sounds a lot to take in but its fun /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    What a dog's dinner.
    What a complete waste of effort...


    And as for the Lupo...it looks like a rollerskate with bus wheels.

    Why take arguably the finest handling car VAG have made in the last 10 years and kill it's handling by fitting wheels that are too wide and too large in diameter?
    I just don't know..

    Lupo - fine handling? I never knew that.

    I tend to agree with David and Glen. 90% of the car is tooo much, especially the interior. But as said before, each to their own. I guess with a 1.6 I'd try to keep the weight down in regard to all that ICE, but I see it still puts out more than mine /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The Lupo in general is not...

    The Lupo GTI is sublime as hot hatches go...like a Mk2 GTI but without the bendy 'shell and with brakes that work.
    A great little car...so chuckable and fluid..

    ah. My 1st car was a 1.1 MK1 Golf and apart from the brakes and a few refinements I prefered it to my 2nd - 1.3 MK2 Golf that was slower and wasnt as much fun to drive.
