Oh well after xmas its off to abbott racing to see giles got some reds that need to be programmed also the tdo4
He said he was gonna dyno it before i put them in then again afterwards!!
Not looking forward to having the ***** thrashed out of my baby any tips on keeping it in one piece
they reckon could be a minimum of 30hp increase so with it running on stage 1 at the moment hopefully should take it to 240-245ish:D
What does anyone reckon thats had this sort of set up????

I think a stock exhaust (even aero) will strangle it a bit. Abbotts Stage 2 the 240bhp one has a 3" cat back, and the next step a full 3" system.

Having said that hopefully they will map to your hardware, just means another map when you do the exhaust.

I'll guess at 225-230 bhp as is :confused:

I've only ever done one dyno - basic checks done like oil level and temp.

If hardware is gonna fail, its gonna fail, but I'm sure it will be fine, its hardly like being on the road load wise, I mean there is no drag / wind resistance (from trying to pass through air at speed) for a start.
