Yea hope so. He sounded pretty upbeat about it on the phone, I just want to wait until I collect it and see what power we get.

Still waiting for the dyno sheet to be sent over. i have been working on a late shift today so unable to chase them up but a quick update for you.

I was and still are surprised by how much more pull the car has now. sitting in 4th doing 40 put my foot down and it just flies..... only have one issue which i want to speak to them about tomorrow is pulling off slowly in traffic it seems to want to stall... no notice no judder just seems to drop so hopefully it just needs a little tweak on the map but other than that so far so good. i will speak with superchips see what they can do about the stalling and get some miles under my belt with it before i post some sort of review.

Will it do any long term damage or stress on the engine

Nobody can answer that. I would say that in the long term it does effect the lifetime of some parts. But that has anything to do with the drivestyle

still no dyno run print :/ have spoken to superchips in regards to my issue at slow crawling speeds where car feels like it might stall and this should be sorted with a tweak. I have 2 days off work monday tuesday so i will write some review and have everything online for you guys.

Im sure something wont last as long by adding more power but nothing will go wrong from it any time soon or during the time i own the car im almost positive. the engines have massive headroom and the gearbox is a bit of an old dog and can take massive power so things like bearings and brakes would probably wear faster but most likely last longer than the time you have the car for any way.

That is an interesting point

Often it is assumed that increasing the power/ torque of an engine will make it wear out faster and it will be more likely to fail

But it is more complicated than that, and it is usually too many revs or too much heat that kills an engine, and having to "thrash" an underpowered engine may kill it quicker than if it had enough power - so it often comes down to the way it is driven

Sound really good. Emailed them today with the question when i could buy the remap. But they say the remap is still in development

I'm glad that the issues got resolved, domo85.

Would you say that there's a noticeably improvement in performance compared to stock?

It would be interesting to drive it back to back with the remap and with stock map (I assume you can utilize the Bluefin to do this at some point).

We're all eagerly awaiting the dyno graphs :rolleyes:

Yea I have done back to back and it's very noticeable. When I collected the car the Michael the guy doing the remap said he has got more power than the 125ps version so I assume must be around the 130 mark but hopefully it will be avail soon now the remap seems spot on to drive.
