Well guys (n gals) me and Fred are back from Power Engineering, and the results from the remapping are ..... Good
Now, before you all say anything, I completely forgot to ask him to get bhp @ the wheels values (Bugger) but there were no setup changes to the RR between runs so the results will be valid as a relative comparison.
1st Run - 173bhp, bit down on what both Dave and I thought it may be, but youve gotta have a starting point.
2nd Run - uploaded the first map, and came up with 178 - not bad I started to be happy at this point
Dave checked the fueling, and it was running leanish, so the mapping had to take this into account.....
3rd Run - Timing and fueling altered, and came out with 182.
4th Run - Timing and fueling changed again slightly, upd the rev limit and this time it came out with 184
Dave wanting to see if he could squeeze a little bit extra out and so did a minor timing change again, and re-ran, but came out again with 184, so thats what Im left with now, a RenaultSport Clio 184
The rev limit raise has left me with 98 at the top of 3rd and 120ish at the top of 4th, the increase on 3rd will be useful for the 1/4 mile.
Ive got the printouts of bhp and torque, Ill post these up when I get my scanner setup tomorrow (sometime).
The Bad :
Well, after stopping for a quick MaccyDs, we made our way back up the M40, going well, felt good, esp. at top end, then.... BANG got hit by a shovel head! which had been lying on the carriageway and got kicked up by a Merc in the outside lane, car still ran ok, so decided to pull in at the next services, I was thinking that it prob just hit the bumper and might have just split that - Oh how wrong I was It hit the bumper - split, grill - smashed, offside light cluster - smashed the lower mounting and internal plastic and the bonnet - kinked the bottom offside corner and about 5" up the side.... Bollox.
Gotta get a few quotes and see what the damage is going to be, but I know it aint gonna be cheap, Ive got some photos of the damage which Ill post up tomorrow when I get chance - Anyone know of an Iceburg 172 Mk2 at a scrappy with rear end damage??????
