That sounds good fellas cheers. Problem is, I just bought a new house so the cash flow is proper strapped right now. I just wanted something that would increse airflow cheaply at the moment and then add the induction kit later on.

So if you know of any that would be a good panel replacement, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Sounds good, had a look around and saw that Pipercross do a decent one too. Of the two would you say K&N would be the better choice?

Hi all, today was remap day, but unfortunately it isn't going to happen. Andy Forrest was unable to secure another job down here in the south so he had to pass on coming down to do mine.

I'm now going to have to go with someone else in the south and have been given the details of a guy who is aparently very good. I'm off on holiday for 2 weeks this Thursday so it will have to wait until I come back, but in the mean time, if you know of anyone/business who are great at remapping and are in the Berkshire area or at least nearby, let me know.

Will report back soon

Hello everyone

Finally it has happened... and what a nightmare getting there.

This weekend finally saw the car get a remap by the good man that is Bob Rawle down in Swindon. Before I could remap though, I had to upgrade my Injectors in order to get the best out of the 18g turbo, a set of STi injectors did the trick.

The car is now running about 308bhp and 305ft pound of torque, and I have to say it's one helluva improvement.

Bob did say I need to remove the Turbo Up-Pipe cat and the center cat as they are preventing at least 40-50 more horses. At the moment though I am happy with it how it is...

... but I know a Scooby is like a tube of Pringles, once you start picking, it's difficult to stop!
