Off to Avon tuning tomorrow afternoon for a stage 1 map with a couple of tweeks on the rolling rd.
They write their own maps and with me having an R600, intake pipe and elbow they will run it on the RR and see if they can safely get a little more out of her.

Funny - I’m getting the APR TCU remap tomorrow. Had the APR stage 1 map flashed a few weeks back and want to see if the TCU map improves D mode and reduce and chances of clutch slip - running the HO 98 ron map.

Unfortunately there is no RR near me so just going by driveability and I do notice a difference in response and pull.

Good luck - make sure you share the results!

They said they will dial down the torque a bit and once the clutch is uprated they will turn it back up.

Only made 291bhp before the map and made 350bhp after. Little disappointed with the numbers but the car drives really well, pulls so much stronger now.

It's my birthday
Don’t chase numbers! If you’re happy with how it feels, that’s all that matters.

Think I need to get mine booked in somewhere soon for an APR Stage 1 (Low Torque)...

I just had a figure in my head, that said I've had cars that have made great numbers and not felt that quick so I am happy. The car drives really well, it was a bit greasy on the drive home but in 1st and 2nd the car moves about a bit now under power and you can feel all 4 wheels looking for grip. They spent 4 hours on it so can't ask any more really.
Hopefully the graph is now the right way up (-:

Spoken to Avon tuning this week and told them Im in the process of bedding in my Sachs clutch and as they mapped it with the chocolate oem clutch in mind, would they look to turn up the power/torque now. They said that would be no problem at all and to get it booked in when the clutch is ready. Also said they would do it free of charge.

Went back to Avon tuning today and had the map played around with, managed to get to 360bhp and 364ft-lbs torque.
Not had chance to try it properly as it was a traffic nightmare on the way home. The guy said the intake temps were the deciding factor on how far it could go.
