  • Cars at MPG

    Well finally my car has been dropped off at mpg to have the stage 2 completed having had the turbo back on it for over a week so looking forward to getting it back on wednesday
    Full list of whats going on :

    Full turbo back system and sport cat (on last week)
    Stage 2 remap
    RARB
    Forge recirc valve (fitted at last)
    Uprated fuel pump
    Uprated fuel regulator

    So hopefully should be a bit more fun when its back in my hands,not really fussed figures wise as long as its real world quicker but expecting upwards of 230bhp and 260 ftlb,fingers crossed

                              Well the Bus isnt getting a stage 2 remap after all folks,all other parts are fitted included uprated fuel pump ,regulator,forge recirc and rarb which looks ace on a merv but as for the map......

                              well basically Arnaud at EDS isnt 100% confident in these being safe mapped higher than what it is ,being stage 1, without uprating the intercololer as he feels that although its the same lump as the corsa the ecu being different coupled with the weight difference = cant gaurantee the safety of the map as its never been done before above st1 by eds.


                              so it looks like it will have to be a jump from stage 1 .5 to stage 3 but that will have to wait for a bit now as ive spent a few quid in the last week on it .

                              so not all bad as it will be more powerfull and safer in the long run especially with my uprated fuel pump and regulator now fitted but no great pub figures to share with you all for the moment as i dint fancy having a bigger power merv that lasted 10 miles at most ,lol.

                              Dont worry though chaps intercooler is already sourced so only a matter of (not much) time before its sorted .
