    I think the actuator may struggle to give 310bhp. Wouldn't be surprised if its commented on as stock actuators are rubbish at holding boost.

    Great start though.

    What are my actuator options? It's obviously got a bit more strength in it then an old tired one but what can I get the RTech lads to do to make it hold?

    Niki is saying that it is cracking at the top end but he'll try to add another 3-4mm pre load to it before he's finished.

    Oh I'm sure r-tech are on the case, they've probably tested it with a spring or something to give it more clamping force if its required anyway, but if an uprated one is needed then just do the same as Dave did and use a t3 10psi actuator, modified to your stock bracket. Pretty simple job and the actuator is about £70. But that's only if its needed you may well be fine but either way its not a big job . Hour in total maybe.

    Am sure your old minger will crack the 300bhp mark and be a proper little stealth beast on the road

    That won't happen. It already did 296 before the mapping so it's almost guaranteed :moa:

    I hope it is.
    I'm getting bored of hearing you trying to make 300bhp.
    Get on with it already.
    I'm waiting for you go on about reaching 400bhp.

    Just cursed myself :(

    Update from Niki says its now 296bhp but 330lbft torque. He's set it up so there's lots of timing advance on part throttle and said it feels as strong as an R32 then at 90-100% throttle all hell brakes loose lol.

    Welly, I may have to offer up my sack to you at ADI :(

    He said it may make 300 tomorrow once cool as he's been running it all day mapping it. So we'll see :)

    At the end of the day it's all about road drivability and this car will still be a beast. 300 would be nice on a graph even if it is only 1 time.

    296 is certainly not to be sniffed at from a KO4 ....and 330lb that is going to be an animal...

    Scott can you film the nut slaying on your new cam please...:)

    That torque will be insane....may need to get some decent tyres for the winter otherwise will be lighting all four up everywhere ;)

    Could always pop to AMD for some willy waving figures lol....although mine was down 20bhp there so may not always be the case

    Niki was telling me about the torque intervention structure the other day. I'm excited.

    Do you have a page with your full spec list for performance modifications? Shouldn't even be on ASN at work so don't have time to read all the pages :p

    Lazy sod :)

    Just for you:

    - AEB large port head
    - Welly cooler
    - 550cc injectors
    - AEM WMI kit
    - Relentless exhaust mani
    - Relentless DP & de-cat
    - Miltek exhaust
    - B5 TIP
    - Jetex cone filter
    - IE rifle drilled
    - Brand new K04
    - Brand new In tank fuel pump

    It's not a final figure yet. I'm sure Nick can make it hit 300 but we may have to wait till the morning. Unfortunately the car probably will hit 300 on the road as there's more air then the fans on a dyno but we'll never know.

    get some live logging done once it been mapped by Niki and then post up your humungus gs readings and of course new 0-60 etc :)
