  • concerned abouth the power jump

    thinking of gettting cs2 done this month and then the intercooler and remap update as booked for april, seems sensible just having second thoughts about jumping in at the deep end straight away lol

    When I did the Monaro, I did it in small jumps mainly because the upgrades were still being developed, however, I think I still would have gone the same route had they all been around at the time.

    My theory is this:

    You initially get that rush with the power and slowley this rush will disappear and you feel you now want....so you then take the next step and you get the rush once more

    But, if you were to jump in at the deep end and go for the BIG power straight off, then you will get a nice BIG rush but that will soon wear off and then where does that leave you, you are already at the end.

    Just my thoughts...

      its everyone to there own i suppose!! but i prefer upgrading in dribs and drabs, cause its nice to see the difference each time and it gives the car chance to catch up and you always have something to look forward to like the boss said. . And i like drinking thorneys vending machine dry

      also there is the small issue on how much cash you have got!!! i've promised the miss'is that i won't spend anymore on the car until after the wedding in May and i'm itching already, its a good job the wedding is paid for cause we would probably end up at gretna green instead of cyprus

          I done mine in stages aswell... I found it more fun knowing that there was something more to go at a later date. Also it gives you time to adjust and get used to increased power.

          Also if you find at stage 2 you have enough and dont want to go further you've saved yourself some cash
