And so it begins Rolling Eyes
Since i want to keep an oem look i swapped out the standard intake pipe for the vRS one which is twice as wide and fitted an K&N filter in the airbox.



Since im going to Crail on sunday thought might aswell take it down the strip so rear seats are out
Laughing


And then a wee trip to Ecotune


tried to get it strapped down but turns out my car was too low and they had to take the undertray off Laughing


When the car was dyno'd when i bought it at Awesome GTi after 2 tanks of vpower and 32,000 miles it made 115bhp and 202 ft lbs.

With the intake and filter and 25k of miles of vpower now sitting at 56k it made 119bhp and 220 ft lbs not bad considering it should be 103bhp and 184ft lbs




And so it began hopes were for 140bhp

Ecotune stage 1 came back with 150.1bhp and 253 ft lbs Shocked more than happy with that but also the driveability is amazing the pick up with the throttle response (electronic) is so much better previously in 5th at 50-60 cruising on the motorway then you put your foot down to over take it used to pause then go now its just instant and in 3rd and 4th it just keeps going and going.

So before crail couple of things done.

Got the vents in the car wrapped to match the Nav display that was done a couple of months back done professionally as you can tell.



Sunstrip fitted as well to help promote a company that has help me out kitting the car out alot lately which they sent me



Also some heat tape from Funk Motorsport which as you can tell is shockingly bad so was done by me Rolling Eyes Laughing trying to keep heat out of the intake


Crail was great, looking at the boost logs ecotune have mapped in boost by gear so in 1st gear its making 17.5 - 18psi and from 2nd onwards the full 22.5psi.

Planning it at 3k there was a small amount of wheelspin then the car just hooked and was gone then it just seemed to be a case of everyone chasing my down, car goes to 91mph in 3rd and as i was trapping 84-86mph i just revved it out, did try going into 4th to keep it in the power/torque band but just lost so much time on the gear change.

When it was wet first gear was just a no go, it was a case of get it moving in 1st then straight to 2nd then whoever got traction first pretty much won. couple of times it did aquaplane at 75-80mph which was "interesting"




Against a stage 2+ ecoboost making 190-200bhp

So first semi eco run up to knockhill and back on saturday with the stage 1 managed to return this Cool


On sunday i just ditched my car on a club stand and sent the day helping out adam and fee but it still got some attention


After umming and ahhing about going on track i spoke to the girls in the knockhill office and they said i could go out for the last session and only charged me the difference which was £15 so cant really complain and with it being wet i prefered that as it puts less strain on the car and tyres with it being a daily road car and not having alot of money to through at it (min wage ftw)

Car still great but you can feel the difference since the alignment was done with the new springs so need to get George to put his set up back on it Laughing Oil temp got up to 124 degrees this time where as at the trackscotland day it only got up to 116 so looks like the remap does make it run hotter although you cant fit oil coolers to these Mad



Trying to be George down duffus at 60mph didn't work out as the esp ruined it as you can't fully turn it off.

although your best mate phoning you mid cool down lap doesn't help Laughing

Car then went for its MOT today and passed with flying colours.


Another month that will be a year and what a year its been Very Happy
