Very nice to! :cheesy:
Thats one hell of a spec, what sort of power output you getting?
28-10-02, 10:11 AM
Thats what I have been seriously wondering about :-? , the Hirsch ECU upgrade step 2 indicates a 230hp and 350nm but with all the additions, every mod has contributed some positive response in the butt section eversince and there are also no credible dynos in my country. I read that they have more accurate dynos in Europe. Could you or someone on the board assist in gauging the current power output at this point in time on a breakdown basis mod by mod? :lol: That will really be helpful. Thanks for being on the bb Guys. Keeping up the mods with the 9000boys. 8)

Well mines alledgedly putting out around 240bhp, and 390nm, using just a speedparts stae2 kit, It's going on a rolling road next week so I'll have some concrete figures then...

Of course speedparts do a range of bits!
