    Isnt your car really low? Best take a c spanner as you wont be allowed on the ramp being so low.

    Providing you have most bolt on mods and its in good condition you`ll probably get 190-200 and 210-220ft-lbs.

    Because the ko3s needs a rebuild as the condition is unknown and been 22 having your own place an stupidly expensive insurance I haven't got a grand to throw at the car all at once

    That would be me then....:racer:

    Come on Jardo lets get this dyno sorted out lol

    Lee- you should have waited to get the k03s on first, you would have got more for you money but I know how exciting it is getting mapped. your car will be in good hands!

    let us all know how you get on:o.k:

    Because there is no reason not to Karl, at all.

    R-tech being awesome, will charge £250 for a st1 on Lees car, or £290 for a st2 with ko3s. Lee can get his st1 now and get a 40bhp / 70lbft gain, then gather his money and fit his ko3s when he's ready, then when it takes it back to R-tech for st2 Niki generally charges £50 for the upgrade, so a whopping £10 premium for getting 40bhp right here and now.

    I understand your situation and 'do it once - do it right' approach, but in the case of an AGU and st1 vs st2 ko3s, there is no money to be saved :)

    Few issues from what I gather meaning it wasn't able to be mapped today, nothing major.

    I'd get the ko3s on sooner now Lee then have a re-think :)

    As prawn has said it hasn't been mapped due to a "issue" not on here to cause trouble so won't go into details but sadly hasn't been done

    That's what I love about R-Tech... A lot of tuners would just bang a map on, charge you £300/£400 and shove you out the door... Not Niki though, he's just a VAG legend lol

    Surely if it's not the fault of RTech, but you're not telling anything it just looks more suspicious and worse on RTech?!

    Seems odd to me :shrug:

    I'd leave it bro, I've heard the ins and outs of it and it's not worth the hassle.

    Can you imagine how far against my nature it is to say that? But this is something best left alone.

    Something should be said.

    If its left to the internetz wild speculation will start and that could be worse than what you say, weather was you say is true or not is down to people but any thing is better than nothing.

    He was so excited about getting mapped, he jumped in the wrong car and turned up in his Mrs Micra?

    He did map it, it made more power than Jardo's, so Jardo murdered everyone at the scene?
