    My bad, I thought he was referring to leaving the nonsense.

    andy, whats the best way for the ecu to adapt? also roughly how many kms(miles) does it take?

    differences noted so far:
    idles smoother
    shifts a little harder but also definately quicker on manual mode
    its running richer
    engine seems to operate at lower temps and drives smoother
    it feels a little sluggish on the throttle, requires more input.

    I havent given it a proper run yet as its been raining, hoping it stop soon.

    you guys going to love the headers, MHP LT's are the best in the bizz and once paired with the race exhaust thats the most powerfully system you can have for this car............

    Harun,

    Beat the snot out of it for 100 miles, the first 50 in manual mode if possible. The harder you drive it the better it will respond at WOT initially.

    Thanks!

    412rwhp dyno'd today. It was a little hot (about 30 degrees). It was on a dyno dynamics dyno. I feel it was a little low, how ever, ever run it picked up about 5rwhp. Had 3 runs, 1st run was 403rwhp. The car drives great, shifts awesome and does really well against cars that should leave me comfortably. I'm hoping to take it to the track on Wednesday and see the difference. The car definately drives different. It feels stronger and better. So far I am happy with the new tune. I guess the track will tell. Thanks to the mhp family im learning how to drive it down the strip using it's full potential.

    Dyno dynamics can read very low depending on settings.

    Please post the graph!

    Thanks

    What about the file and a .jpg? Dyno operator should be able to send it to you.

    Just a small update:

    Ive done about 1200kms (800miles) since the new tune. Car is going good, im still happy with it! I also fitted one of the Low Temp thermostat from MHP. I was normally running about 93c now im more at 91c. I dont know if its because the weather has dramatically changed and is much colder now. The car feels strong, i can not wait to get it out to the track, which re-opens in July. Will update again then.

    TO note aswell, service from Andy has been great. As other people have mentioned, he is excellent to deal with. I still owe the guy some money and he hasnt hassled me at all. Andy i will fix it up soon.

    PB'd tonight with a 11.8 @ 119mph. Not trying to make excuses but it will go quicker with the perfect run. I didnt stall launch it at all, just drove it out of the whole. Compared to my 11.9 my half track mph is up by 2 mph so it should go that bit quicker hopefully next time i head out. Still happy with the pb.
