Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

If The Car Wasn't Broke Right Now I'd Be More Than Happy To Waste Fuel To Prove To You It Does Them Times And When It Is Fixed It Is Never Being Put Under That Stress Again !! .. Don't Know How Fast An A3 2.0TDI Is But It Kills One Of Those, Stayed With S3 .. Stayed With A Civic Type R, Maybe A Tiny Tiny Bit Faster =S

That calculator doesnt even take into account peak power rpm. I guess it would be based on a petrol car. Diesel's inately have a pause between putting your foot down and something happening (AKA turbo lag) This is why I dont beleive your video. I dont care about lights on the mway, and I can see no signs of being on a real road. Anyone with video editing software can add those effects.

i doubt if my 220bhp Marea will hit 60 in 6 seconds, and i'm pretty sure it would walk all over your punto!
Around 220-230 lb-ft ??

Right Ok Less Torque Than Me But 34More BHP .. Bhp Is Top Speed And Torque Is How Fast It Gets You There So I'm Guessing From What The Guys At Red Dot Said I Should Beat You To About 90-100 ?? Then You Should Beat Me From There ??

What about the rest of the gears? My car has similar figures to yours and has never, ever gone like that no matter what you do.

those are all such different cars.

A3 2.0 TDi i have no idea about but the Civic type R, assuming its the older model is around 198bhp and a bit gutless until on vtec, i would expect your punto to be similar to it.

Audi S3, no chance in hell would you keep up with one, talking from experience as my brother owns one, £30k car with 4WD & 270bhp it is very fast, scary fast in the hands of said brother

It's Always Been 1-1.2/3 Seconds Faster Than It Should Be, Before The Re-Map [Suppose To Be 9.4] After The Remap Suppose To be 7-7.5 =S
