Re: Engine tuning

Yup there is a tuning lounge...

With filter and exhaust alone, you'll only notice a difference in sound, the gain is so small. You'll have to remap to make use of the extra breathability you are trying to gain by the filter and exhaust. The standard chip allows for very little change, so go for a new chip.

Next step will be gas flowing the engine head.

Re: Engine tuning

Well here we go, if you have the alloy top engine then it's easy, swap the crank for the lightened CF2 1.8 one, it's a direct fit and the engine I've just built around one in the "chatter at 2500 revs" thread is probably the most up and ready 2.0 I've ever driven, it's so eager to spin up with the lightwieght crank that if you look at the pedal wrongly it's up to the red line, coupled with widening the inlet ducts in the manifold aither side of the connecting rubbers, the induction noise just gives me the horn. It sounds the buisness and it performs like it screams.
