Can the guys with the Gta's post up what power figures and what difference the remap made from the rolling road day that passed this weekend at red dot racing.

Was 228.1bhp and 161.4 ft-lb (oh dear).
Now 245.7 bhp and174.5 ft-lb.

Thats a gain of 17.6 and 13.1.

Gains are good but I think my timing is out by a tiny bit!

Could prove expensive..........

i really dont understand why they use bhp at the flywheel and torque at the wheels?
think those results are very good mate anyways.

Good result's but from a poor start. The last white GTA in there did that too......:eek:

A good service and the timing checked coming soon.

I haven't got the graphs in front of me but from memory my car was 232.4bhp as standard and went to 257.9bhp post map. I can't remember the exact torque figures but they were around 167 ft-lb as standard and 189 ft-lb post map.

I'll try and check later and post the exact figures.

That is pretty poor considering they are meant to have 247bhp standard!

I really need to find out what mine is running now as I am concerned. I would like to think it is about there having kept up with a few serious cars but just dont know for sure.

Mine was 252bhp standard and they were very surprised as they mostly run about 240bhp.

Was that with the Auto Delta air intake on Jim, or totally standard?
Oh, with the pipe on but I dont really rate that at all. Only better throttle response out of that with some sound;) Either way, if most of them run at 240 (mine was the best they had seen) I wouldnt have got 12 bhp from that kit. :thumbs:

Before: 229.2 BHP and 143.9 lb-ft

After: 262.1 BHP and 184 1 lb-ft

Said the timing was retarded and that was the problem.


That's with an AD intake and a Ragazzon exhaust (cat-back)

Like Jim, I think the AD intake is mainly noise and throttle response.

how is the timing retarding? isn't it controlled by the ecu? in which case then there should be a reason why the ignition is retarding?

Do the red-dot remaps increase the rev limiter?
No. But then the rev limiter is there for a reason.
Without modifying any of the engine internals I would tend to stay away from moving the rev limiter upwards.

They moved mine up slightly but I never go up that high. They said that on the way home that I should see where it is and to thrash it on the way home because shes still learning. I came out of the services and booted it in second and bounced it and I hated it, I could hear her screaming OUCH STOP IT :cry: ! Wont be doing it again as there is no need but I think she does around 80 in second.

I just wondered as the the Autodelta remap raises it 400rpm to 7600

80 in 2nd !! - I didn't think the ratios were very different in the GTA to the GTV?

I think the rev limit is set slightly higher on mine too. The limiter used to kick in early, around 6800rpm. Defo goes above 7000rpm now although I haven't hit the limit yet.

BTW the bhp figures I quoted above were correct but the torque was 162lb-ft standard and 187.4lb-ft mapped.
