    If the rings are worn and you get missing and black smoke then I'd be happy with 144bhp. As they are only 150 new and can vary a bit anyway losing 6 hp from the quoted figures isn't that bad. None of the mods that you have one will give any real gains on the standard map, they may give a gain if the car is remapped and those taken into account but I doubt it.

    correct me if im wrong anybody....but the car wont actually fetch 150bhp as standard at the wheels from any rollers...if it does then they are wrong!!

    This is what my understanding is

    Animal is right, not at the wheels anyway.
