    Having a little playbwith the car tonight as my AH Fab cooler comes tomorrow,so thought I'd see what kinda temps I was getting so I have a before and after type thing.. I'm using my liqud S3 gauge for all the figures,so now I have my 3" down pipe on, thought I'd try bhp/torque too.. Car is maped (stage 1), and I saw 263 bhp which I was VERY please with, BUT was only seing 230ft lbs of torque??? What's standard torque, and what's an average stage 1 maped cars torque???

    Can't wait to get the cooler on tomorrw, then get it down to John to have a stage 2 on it Saturday!!!!

    Bit would like to know bout the bhp/torque, as I feel it's rather low for what it is???

    Standard torque is either 200 or 207 depending on whether you have the 210 or 225 model. Normally mapped to about 250-260lb/ft of torque.

    Having said that, I'm guessing you have a revo map n their stage 1 gives slightly less power than a stage 1 from celtictuning so that figure you got prbably isn't far off.

    I see about 240bhp and 285lbs using liquid. I think my maf is tired though. Thats Revo Stage 1, max boost and advanced timing.

    Oh but it is.
    Stage 1 from celtictuning is different from a stage 1 from revo or amd.

    Celtictuning all the way!
