Re: I want to rip my front tyres up quicker than the last lot
be warned! i changed my 3.0 gtv cup for the jtd and got it re-mapped by red-dot racing in london. they use the millenium tuning box which is used by most. the figures are 200bhp and 299lb. i had this done in november the car was brand new in september. so far i have had a clutch and flywheel go up the spout. I got the car back on thursday and already i have a major rumbling noise coming from the gearbox when i put my foot down below 2000 rpm. sounds like the gearbox wants to come loose and scoot down the road! if you go for the remap i suggest saying no to the 200bhp option and opting for a lesser state of tune. this of course is my personal experience, others may have had no grief at all!
on the upside, on the motor way, my friend in his 147gta gets destroyed by me in 5th. he has to change into 4th to keep up! the pace is really astonishing. keeps up through the gears with 3.0 gtv's(i know because my father has one and we have raced!)
i also average a combined 43mpg. before the tune it was around 38mpg. the car has now done 11500 miles since september.
one last thing, upgrade the brakes! you will be stopping from much higher speeds.
also got the jtd lowered last week. looks mint and drives better!
'07 GT Blackline JTD, but a 159TI 2.4 on its way very shortly!
