Chilling Roll on Wednesday

Well, last Wednesday I discovered a business link between myself and Angel Tuning. So this coming Wednesday our 159s will be feeling smug with and extra few horses and torques under the bonnet.

Then we are going to Wales for the weekend

Just the standard Angel map for each but we're looking at a 40-50 bhp gain on each and 50 - 60 ftlbs. I wish I knew what that is in new money but I haven't worked it out yet.

Anyway we'll be able to most of the scrutneys round here afterwards

Any chance you could get some rolling road tests done before you get the remaps done on wednesday, then get them rolling roaded again afterwards?

It would definitely be interesting to compare the 200 and 210 outputs before and after the remap, especially if they are both done by the same tuner and both tested on the same rolling road. Don't think we've had an opportunity like this on the forum before. Would probably cost £100+ all in for the two runs before and two runs after though..

Did he know about that? I noticed it at the trafford centre, but was too polite to say anything.

OMG!

Haven't tried the Lusso yet but the ti is now chucking out an estimated 255bhp and 490Nm. It's awesome

A Leon Cupra FR couldn't keep up down the bypass
