Hi guys,

Here's what I plan to do......

Ordering Tune box (CR Tech2 from Bluespark) this weekend along with 2no. Deflector plates and a K&N Airfilter replacement.
My mechanic friend & I will be stripping the EGR next weekend to carb clean it properly and when re-installing the valve incorporate the two deflector plates.... (rectangular 4 holes and oval 3 holes).

How does this sound?
Full exhaust system at Christmas I reckon.....

What I've mentioned above is based on everything I have read these past few weeks and from various threads.
my post here is my take with regards to getting a more responsive GT, more fuel efficient (although great anyway) and an increase in power when required (but being careful), as I want to look after my clutch and flywheel etc (Big bucks).

So, those of you fellow enthusiasts who clearly know a lot more than I do in this instance I would appreciate your thoughts - Simple but effective?! :thumbs: or :tut:

Good luck. Should be great. Almost like a OEM+ version.
Small tweaks can really make a car that little bit better.

Enjoy it why you keep it and make sure you give it a good few runs.

Simple mod like strut bar will help if you are battling through the B / A road twisties. Makes a difference to directional change with the heavy diesel lump in the front.
A rear Strut brace will also help with understeer.

They are easy to install too and require no real fabriaction or suspension changes. just helps stiffen the car up a little

Everything order today and hope to receive the CR Tech 2 box tomorrow if nothing else :thumbs:

By the way, I wrapped some of that dental floss around the pin top & bottom to one of my door checks and it's stopped TIK TOK'n!!! Works a treat :)

Greatest tip I've notice to date! :D lol 'simple things?!'

I would be interested in how you get on with this box, the testimonials look pretty good.

AWESOME!!!

No more smoke in accelerating hard and so much more responsive just on default settings!

I can't seem to find a really good spot for the box to sit though... Anyone recommend a good place to position it? :0/

Hmm, good to know. I'll get saving my pennies!

Just a thought but on my 156 there is a load of space behind the wheel arch liner and access to the engine bay via the same hole the abs sensor wiring goes through. I don't know exactly how the setup looks but if you could mount it like that it would keep the engine bay looking factory.
