What? Where have you been? Well worth it lol!

Let me know how much more you get given with the induction kit fitted, you got 193.8 Bhp to beat.

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

Great change to the car!

Only got the remap but the car is awesome now - more importantly only when you want it to be. If you drive sensibly it's as relaxed as standard, only smoother. Put your foot down and you take off. Economy is same for me as standard.

Top notch upgrade, they were the main 3 main engine mods I was going to do to my GP. Keeps us updated on the outcome of the bhp n torque

Actually for that reason I wish I'd done an oil change and filled up on the premium fuel so I could beat Ffoxy's figures

I'll have to add em to my sig actually...

184.0 bhp (on Asda standard fuel ) @ 3400 rpm
246.3 ft-lb torque at the wheels @ 2550 rpm

had my GPS M-jet mapped at Red Dot, there **** hot!!! However only had upgraded panel filter and remap. let me know what the figures are on yours seen as you are getting upgraded intercooler as well.

Cheers

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

only you can answer the question is it worth it?

much are they charging you for the intercooler, induction and remap.. take it there fitting all of this? Would imagion you'll smash the 200hp barrier? but at what cost - will it remain practical?! Maybe the test of time. The intercooler will just keep the running temp down and usually results in an increase in torque and save you turbo from heat soak. I thought they had stopped producing the induction kit cause of difficulties, maybe im wrong?

Bet you leave red dot with one big ass smile on ur face though
Thanks Scott_20 thanked for this post

That all sounded very philosophical to me

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

Well I have a super chip in it at the mo and it only put it up to 147.8bhp but you still can tell the difference as when i had the car service 2 weeks ago they said it was very fast not normal lol

the total price was 695 with all free fitting etc bargain
there is a small problem with the induction kits, some thing to do with the airflow meter I think but he said that is no problem for the engine or sumin

Re: 1.9 M Jet to tune on not to tune

id be dubious, i know from when they had problems with the air flow meter on the stilo 2.4, all it is, is theres to rich/good of air flow for there meter to cope with and on the stilo throwed up loads of lights on the dash - sometimes sending it in limp home mode when it threw a temper. Would speak to PuntoKris about it as from what i can remember hes about the only other person on here anyways to have the induction kit fitted.

Oh by the way price sounds good. Would like to know a little more about the intercooler myself! Might have to give red dot or pete a call myself
