    You could get a taxi and go to Bicester Village and do some shopping or just wait at the reception area at AmD, with access to an Apple Mac - if it's working /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif. But it will be worth the wait when you get in your car and give it full throttle for the first time - Enjoy /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/dancing.gif

    You will get about 285BHP I would have thought. A guy on another forum has the same setup as you and got this amount.

    You can get more out of it, but you are pushing the turbo a bit too much if you do.
    I assume you are talking about your S3 engined MK2 golf?

    I'd tend to expect more around a genuine 265bhp

    Maybe its down to the mapper. The guy I know had his mapped at Stealth by Vince.

    Heres some pics

    Several times recently transmission loss has been mentioned re the 2wd vs 4wd differences in power. As these graphs claim to give approximate flywheel figures (not at the wheel figures) then there should be no difference between 2wd and 4wd (it has already had transmission loss factored out).

    Unless of course the approximation of transmission loss is completely wrong (which it seems is the case). The error is then compounded by the assumption that transmission loss is a percentage of total power (which it is not). Give or take a slight variable impact transmission loss is a constant. Of course it may be a complete coincidence that treating transmission loss as a percentage (badly guessed) makes the final plot look so much better.
