Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

Ooh, drove a 182 and was very impressed with how good it was, not just pace and handling but even the ride.

With petrol I find you need at least a 2.0litre (for displacement) or, less preferably a turbo/supercharger for real torque. Can't stand these revvy v-tech style engines which need 6k+ revs to work Best engine I've had in a car was my Alfa 2.0 twinspark in a 145 cloverleaf, handling was fairly crap though

Whats wrong with a nice revvy engine? I don't have to cry all day long about my boost pressure and it 'not running right'. etc etc. I love my VTEC engine.
Although I'd like a turbo next for tuneability.
