How much are they costing?
0-60 will have to wait till GTI Inters next year so that it's comparable with the times in my sig.
It's £350ish for 4 from Camskill then £20 to fit at my local tyre fitters
Could always "borrow" a CO2 extinguisher from somewhere and give the cooler a cheeky spray on the dyno lol
Not bad. Wish i was still competitive with tyre prices Years ago i could get tyres dirt cheap. Now everywhere online is cheaper!
A FMIC spray has been mentioned. We'll try for 300bhp in the morning
That is a shame mate. I was looking at 4 part worns of some type just to get me through a month or two as I'm spending too much money again at the moment but I cant find anywhere with decent part worns.
Not tried Vredsteins but i have been using FK452`s for the last few years and always been very happy with them especially at the price

Yeh he said it has been running hot after all day today. Been admiring it outside with the bonnet up, wants a wash!
Haha you're not wrong there. It'll be clean and shiny for ADI next weekend :thumbsup:
log block 5 on the road and do your own dyno
"Butt Dyno" Instructions - AudiWorld Forums
When you picking it up? I am dropping mine off Monday for a little tinkle and a rolling road session.
this is running wmi still yea? so temps going to be pretty consistent
I looked at one of your old revo2 runs, and it was >320lbft 280bhp back then with no relentless mani, and no wmi running at that time.
Yes Bill WMI is now working lol
I remember that dyno run bill that was before Ross and I asked you to reel it back a bit does it say what boost it was running? This is now running 21psi which I'm happy with as much more just ups heat with no real gains. Wonder if a large inlet mani will give me that 4bhp I need? I guess the CR of the pistons does make a small difference!
Maybe tomorrow, if not it'll be Saturday.
Niki said he Wants to do 2 hard runs on the dyno under cooler conditions in the morning to get final logs and readings. Said he's not seen above 930 degrees EGT all day which is good news. Also said its the most refined K04 car he's ever driven!
How much do you think WMI has contributed to your readings, seriously giving it some thought on buying a kit, unsure how much power it would add through timing as I'm currently running 304 bhp and 290 lbs ft.
Plenum like we have made on tufftys will yield you some ponies - fo sho
plot for you dude..
on hybrid k03 cars wmi has allowed me to get 283bhp where without they get 260bhp...
engines much happier running cooler with good ign advance.. without having to rag the boost to get things going (and consequently uber hot)
my mantra's being its all about the flow, and heat management
So enlarged inlet next...got an aeb inlet manifold sat in my garage
Will A large intake help surging? and would a car need remapping? also what sort of gains a few hp or +10?
Yeh that's good then. Did sound nice when they moved it. Good times!
Thanks bill. If I remember correctly that dyno run was by turning the boost up to 9 in the revo settings. Was running 26psi there
I think I shall be seriously considering a large inlet mani next. Bill do you think the map will need much work when an inlet mani is fitted or is it a basic plug and play mod?
that was boost 8 not 9
Any idea what psi your holding at the red line?
Even I knew that and it's not my car.
Clearly old Westicles just likes the pictures and didn't read the bit that said B8T4
Yeah I wasn't reading as it was on my iPhone and the graph was the size of a postage stamp!
I've just been told that it made 305bhp this morning. Just waiting for confirmation and a graph. :thumbsup:
awesome dude. what a result. i'm glad it broke 300 otherwise you wouldn't stop...
what you gonna do next now that project 300+ has come to an end
time to edit your sig then fred!
well done mate! them tyres wont last long now!
Time to enjoy the car and try to cut back on the spending.
"Project house decorating" is now in full effect lol
Waiting on proof first before I get carried away
I'll be buying new tyres next month and hopefully I won't bin it in the mean time.
Nice one son!!
awesome dude, well done, all that effort paid off :thumbsup:
Glad you have 'supposedly' got the figures mate , nice to see this one finally break the 300+ barrier.
im kinda dissapointed that welly wont be kicking you in the nuts though.
id love to have seen welly running across the site at ADI and toeing you straight in the nads. that would be more epic than 305hp if im honest
Sorry bud. At least I can kick Welly in the spuds if his BM doesn't reach 300
RTech just confirmed the 305bhp and niki has graphs and ECU logs too. I'll collect the printouts with the car tomorrow
Wicked! Glad to see it hit 300bhp. You have worked hard, happy to see it has paid off! Now to enjoy the car
Thank **** for that haha. What torque did it make pal?
Lets see how much quicker you are around the track with an extra 35 horses then?
R-Tech powah; good work Westy.
Niki's been saying some good things about your motor
Glad it made it mate I know them extra couple of horses aren't a lot but it's so much much more to make that benchmark
