Just a quick update before I head off the the beer fridge for a celebratory lager
Well I'm home with my remapped, DPF'less, EGR closed Brera and I've now got the car I wanted and hoped for in the first place, Thanks Gus.
These are my brief first impressions.
Bearing in mind I drove from Gus's place straight to the motorway, then down the M62, M1, M18, with very little urban roads / dual carriageways etc on the run, apart from a quick stop off at the gym, it's hardly a full review, but here you are:-
The car pulls harder and smoother from lower rev's, with more torque making the drive feel a lot quicker, and with a greater push in the mid-range also making the power very usable.
At motorway speeds it's far more responsive without the sluggishness / lag, you put your foot down, you go, and how
I don't know if it's just my imagination, but on the way back it also seemed smoother / quieter than in the way up at 5:30 this morning.
I'm really looking forwards to taking it down the roads I know to get a more direct "seat of the pants" comparsion against the pre-map car.
I did even managed to miss turn off on the way back, so did the blast to the next turn off and re-join routine, and lucky for me the slip road was empty of cars so I managed to give it a bit of a blast in 2nd, 3rd and into 4th, very impressed with the outcome, its going to be a deceptivley quick car to drive, better get some practice in.
Thanks to Gus for his time, work and the taxi to and from the station. It was nice to put a face to the voice at last.
ps ta for the nice "addition" in the rear window, I saw it when I filled up, with Shell V Max, and did smile to myself.
will post more info after while if people would be interested?
p.p.s, didn't hear you wayne-dear, but maybe next time I'm over that way. Just how loud is the 155?
