Hi good Sirs,

Just to ask if anybody knows what OEM spark plugs come with our cars from the factory.

I'm about to remap my car, and don't know if it's convinient to replace them to a colder spark plug (grade 7) as in elder platforms.

Regards,

Im in Mexico mate. Local guy has a business partnership with an european tuner. We are aiming for 240 whp, anything above that should be a bonus.

I've got 3'' inch decated downpipe and intake.

We shall see.

I made 250bhp with only a dtuk box, 2.5inch cat back and an intake.
I'd hope for a little more with the cat out

I saw your graph.. I like talking on whp.. You got less than 220 whp.

Were u reducing front tires pressure for better launch n wat gear were u using manual mode or S mode with trc full off or semi off?

I dont know why i feel manual mode faster than S mode as theres slight delay of shifting in S mode but not in manual mode, so ur best time is on S mode...did u got any tcu tune as well?

S mode shifts quicker than M mode on the S-Tronic box. If you launch in S mode and just let the car shift up, it won't crack on upshifts, it will if you use the paddles.

Seems a bit smoother in S as well.
