autolusso remap and egr delete, v.happy
went down to the good gents at the bournmouth branch today and had paul do a remap..
198bhp,with original clutch, car is an 07 blackline jtdm..
what a difference, 1st gear is no longer ''useless'' although it still won't set the world alight its got a bit more, second is gutsier still, and third through fifth the car really comes alive...6th is torquier with the car feeling more sure footed right though the rev range.
I had forgotten how much more solid a vehicle feels with extra torque and can only compare it too going from a 500cc bike to a 750..bikers amongst you will know what I mean..
on the way back overtaking was a breeze with torque to spare in 4th and 5th, no peaks the power comes in progessively and is gentle on my according to loz ''on its way out'' clutch.
no problems as as of yey but i don't bat around like a loon, i suspect if driven with some mechanical sympathy/empathy there are really not likely to be any issues other than the clutch, but to be expected really.
have budgeted for a new clutch, Q2 and a set of H&R ARB's in the next 6 months along with the first priority swirl flap removal...
after all this I will have a very sorted blackline...both mechanically and cosmetically..
I fully expect its true pedigree will show through when after all the work is done I get the nexens off and fit a full set of goodyear eagle f1's...all complete by may with any luck.
many thanks to loz and the chaps for making me so welcome, and getting the job done quickly and most importantly properly.
can't rcommend them enough..
I am going to enjoy transforming my GT into the car it should have been from the factory..
