Cup Down on Power :( Help Me!

Can anyone Help my Cups performance has dropped off gradually since Ive had it. Ive been back to Reno a few times and they say its mint! Em not convinced!

Can anyone suggest a decent Rolling Road in the North so I can gauge the performance of my CAR?

Please Help!

abbs, you could go tomotor tune in rotherham, only there figures tend to be realistic, which tend to be quite low!

Where abouts in Rotherham are they?

Are they cowboys or good blokes!

Cheers Craggy may see you on Sunday so that may be a test!;)

abbs - You say performance has dropped? Perhaps its just your getting used to the acceleration and performance of it?

Ditto to geoff....

Get it roaded to check and dont give those reno monkeys anymore excusses to thrash your motor.

Have you got your name down for the midlands/essex rolling road days...or both! there will be plenty to compare with there.

Essex a little far Im near York but thanks for the advice!

The only reason I worry is that I was pushed by an Astra GSI the old shape, I didnt bray mine but i was up around 4 - 500 rpm and wasnt really pulling away!

And yes Im somewhat used to it,only had a passenger say today how well it grips and he has a golf gt tdi which aint a bad bit of Kit!

Cheers boys!

Nice to see the forum been used properly!

Mines gettin faster all the time!! Dont notice the cam change at 4500-5000rpm as much though, but I tend to see a little green light all the time and ignore it! The sound of the engine is lovely without all that sound deadening - no need for an exhaust or induction kit - they wouldnt benefit anything anyway.
