probs put a '3' instead of a '2'. still a bit optimistic though, even at 270 (assuming only a remap). Looks like a bit of a dog to me. Is that a reflection or a 'orrible long scratch at the front of the bonnet on the right hand side?
Never seen a remap give that much! :lol:

Sure it's a typo. I havent ever seen a GTA pull more than 265BHP from just a remap.

Very nice wheels you have there Bacon. Are they BBS CHs? What size are they?

You will only get that by converting it to a 3.8

Roger Evans is racing his GTV V6 3.8 mapped to around 350bhp and that is proving to be enough for FWD. The RWD guys are pushing the 3.8 closer to 400.

You will never get close to that power with a N/A 3.2

Which is exactly why I said a GTA engine rather then specifying the capacity ... ;) (because I couldn't remember what it was ... and if I misquoted I'm sure someone would have been along to correct me :lol:)

Thats because, most of the people that remap cars haven't got a clue of what they are doing.
Also they dont do basic checks such as check the timing to see if it is right.
People should always make sure that the engine is 100% spot on as standard before they modify it.

I guess i'm off topic, i might make a new thread on remaps.

Hi E.E. Thanks mate. They are indeed BBS CH's and they are 19x8.5's. Not bad for £320 for the set with part worn tyres. They needed a refurb tho. Gotta use wobbly bolts tho which im not keen on but have had no probs, ahem, so far. :thumbs: :)

Who is good at remapping? I was talking to a tuner who advertises on some of the italian sites and they didn't have many good things to say about the competiton. I won't mention any names I took it all with a pinch of salt since I have no experience of these things.

£320! For one if my all time favourite wheel designs in 19 inch plus tyres!

Where did you get them from?

I don't know really the answer, I'm starting a new thread on this subject. Lets hope that we will be enlighted.

Thats right. I got them through Pabloss on here, his mate had them on a 156 and just wanted rid basically, im thinking the price of tyres may havehad something to do with it. :D :thumbs:
