I know that, but it's still interesting to me regardless. I could be a side thing anyway. The diesels are the main focus obviously.

Re: Lets have a tuning company competition

which is why i think a n/a tune off would be interesting! who can get the most reliable power/torque figures over the entire rev range sounds like something i would be interested to watch!

Think the minimal gains are enough reason not to bother with n/a petrol cars, unfortunately .

Re: Lets have a tuning company competition

I had my SAAB 93 2.0t petrol tuned and it made a big difference. Note the turbo though!

Would be interested in the results (would rather the 2.4 though!)

Re: Lets have a tuning company competition

Did a quick search for Red Dot and Celtic.

Couldn't find the Red Dot website. And ironically, the special offers at Celtic tuning didn't apply to the Celtic countries!!!

Re: Lets have a tuning company competition

We can provide the dyno and hotel accomendation.

We can arrange another way of doing that as well.

Re: Lets have a tuning company competition

This thread has been an interesting read.......I would love to see it come off. I think everyone would like to see the end results wherever it is held. So those that are contemplating it, I hope you go ahead with it.

It will most likely go ahead.

I will happily take responsibility to organise it. Just wondering at the feasibility before Christmas at the moment.
