    next was to get the car on the rollers i said before i went up there i would be happy with stock bhp 210 as the car is 11 years old now with a few bolt on bits but on a standard map

    The tip, filter may have gained back some bhp and the fact it's only just hit 50000 may have helped, just glad it's running right now as I had a few problems ended up being the maf

    My car on a revo stage 1 map went from reading 205g/s on a bog standard silicone TIP and performance panel filter to 217g/s after i swapped to an 80mm TIP and a jetex induction kit without any software tweaks etc so some bolt on mods should give you instant gratification as such.

    Did you get it Rolling Roaded before fitting the B5 TIP as that would of been a good before and after test.

    He did'nt have the TIP on the day, just filter & heatshield..

    as for power.... the previous two days I have had BAM TT's here, and both would not make power no matter how nicely you asked them...
    200bhp and limped to 230bhp just after remap...

    These engines are all too often now worn out and breathing heavily... and I mean heavily.. oil running thru pipes, and out of throttle body. Sadly this seem to be coming all too common.. :(

    Seing this one make its near stock power was refreshing..

    SammyB LCR later went on to make 287bhp which I think is the highest K04 car reading I have had on my rollers ever. Well done sam. (hybrid next so should be interesting)

    Nice to meet you guys Saturday.. Thanks for making the picture of me blurry.. :p Thats how I look.. phat and blurry

    regards
