Been a developmental week for my GT.
Thursday saw me bright and early at Autolusso for her Mot, cambelt and waterpump change. Also managed to have a full waxoil protection underseal treatment. Not to mention having an Autolusso lower turbo hose fitted. Both of these procedures i had done to my previous 2004 GT.
Had a really good chat to Ned about future upgrades and changes. And what was worthwhile to do and not.
Also we discussed the Alfa Mito Brembo caliper conversion for my car. Which i think might be easier and more cost effective than the GTA brembo's, which would need the uprights changing to GT 3.2 items due to their different bolt pattern.
With the cambelt done it was time to have some fun. Remap time. Wayne chief mapping technician had a chat with me asking me what i was after with my remap. And the options open to me, having the Clover 170 sport button and incorporating it into the process.
Autolusso have really done their homework on the subject, and i was very suitably impressed. They have spent a lot of time studying every aspect. The great thing about Autolusso's mapping, is that as you modify your car, with freer flowing exhausts or water meth injection etc.. you can modify the map to better suit the new modifications. Unlike other generic maps on the market. And this definitely suited me.
So once the new maps were downloaded we went for a test run. Straight away without even pressing the sport button the car felt so much more responsive, throttle sensitivity at slower speeds was greatly improved, which made the car feel much easier to drive. And when i found a bit of road to put some pedal to the metal, i really was taken back by the cars increased torque and power. In a word stunning. Which was confirmed on my drive home to Wiltshire that evening. Much more responsive and powerful than the Angel tuning map i had on my previous GT. And not peaky at all, very linear and mindful of the clutch.
At the moment i have 2 map settings, with the sport button on, sensitivity is increased and the power is delivered in a more aggressive manner. I am very glad i have the q2 diff. With more power you really feel it working more. All in all i am extremely happy with my transformed GT. And can thoroughly recommend this to Gt owners who are considering having their cars mapped.
I cannot stop smiling about my cars new engine character.
Also managed to fit my newly aquired Coilover covers to protect them in the winter months.
