without a dyno figure who knows , but the difference is massive

the map that has been sent has a rough target between 310 and 325 so more than likely

yes he will do it was just a thought if you were having a go

Appreciate the offer but we know what happened last time I worked on your car but I will have to decline I'm afraid, much potential to get it wrong and I don't fancy experimenting with those kinds of states at the moment :shock:

Getting some progress now the mapping is almost finished. The torque curve has been tamed a little as well - don't wanna be bending any rods :oops:

I'm getting better at the data logging as well #-o #-o

Next time there is a dyno day at RR i'll be there get some real figures :roll:

so thats it my tune is now complete 2 runs AFR nice and even , boost pressure even . Going off the best of those 2 runs it equates to about 370-380 at the crank according to online website data . Well happy =D> =D>

Did a run lat night using torque pro and pulled 60-80 mph in 1.53 secs and the wotbox is running great guns on the gear changes
