Cheers for the link mate, might try have a look in on the way back.
Its worth it! Not just from the handling point of view but damage prevention unless you want to blow your diff and gearbox! Get a remap to! POWER!!!!!!!!:D

Q2 upgrade is a definate have read a few horror stories about diffs and gearboxes blowing but the remap?!?! Give me a chance to get used to the 250 crazy Italian horses under the hood, have come from a Ford C-Max (we alright to say the dirty Ford word on here).

*Dont say BMW* whispering! ssshhhh! Ford is no comparison so you are ok!

Dont go to Autodelta, go to Red Dot!
Red Dot Racing

This is the last Red Dot day we had, mine was running at 252bhp and got it to 263bhp. Why dont you try to make it to the next one?

I was lucky having that amount of power standard! The white GTA was on 235ish. Its a really really good day and the sound will give you a semi! Its a 2 hour drive for me each way, so is it worth it for me just driving down again to watch? YES!! You get to meet all the people you talk to on here and put faces to usernames! They will print you off graphs to show you what you got:D The drive home is good fun to!

You'll have to give me a shout next time it's on. Was there any reason why the white GTA was down on power?? Reckon I'd be pretty ****ed off if that was me.

It had got a different map on it retarding the injection or summin lke that. I think they got it upto 258/9 so mine is still better-1- .Keep your eye on the thread and if you can make it down would be good to meet you. Providing I can make it that is!
