    I Had a play tonight with a local subaru impreza classic that's been dyno'd at 323bhp and 319ftlbs and rolling from 60 there was pretty much nothing init all the way to the last digits on my speedo any diffence would have been a quicker gear change from either of us I have a dyno print for k26 turbo'd s3 328.2bhp and 467.5nm.

    how would you say I did against the impreza ?

    With similar power, it was always going to be even on the move, and personally, I think you did well, being in a heavier car! :racer:

    yeah I thought I done well tbh he was saying his car weighs 1300kg with half a tank and with than in the s3 would be about 1500 I believe ? So it got me wanting a bit more power lol I have the oversize tip Stacey used with his k26 just needs to have pcv delete before fitting and need to get my finger out and get cash together for a custom map from bill

    A custom map is essentially tailored to the car so it's getting 100% out of car and safely so far better to anything generic
