If Your 1.9 JTD Hasn't Nocked More That 1-1.5 Seconds Off Get On The Phone To Red Dot If It Wasn't Them That Did It .. He Said It Will Knock Around 2.5 Off Which Yeah I Know Would Take It To 7 .. But It Already Did It In 8, Check My Other Video On YouTube Before Re-Map

Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

I dont care what your other video says you wouldnt do it in 8 seconds dead. Just under 9 i would believe but 8 seconds standard no chance. This is getting really boring now so please just pissing leave it.
Thanks adamcot thanked for this post

Take it to Santa Pod then. I was told nothing like that when I had mine done and I dont think they would make such claims. Book 0-60 is 9.5 secs, so 1 sec would make 8.5, which is about right.

As 1.8 Stilo said, you abused your car and you will have to pay for it. I work in the turbo industry and realise how important it is to look after these parts.

Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

I think mine re-mapped at amongst the highest outputs 193.8 Bhp and 261ft lbs torque, but I would never push it as hard in such a way to damage it.....

I dont feel I have to prove a thing to anyone...

Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

The GPS 130 seems to average high 8 seconds 0-60 standard...autoexpress clocked it at 8.9, that's with a passenger on board.

I reckon a decent map will take off around 1.5-2 seconds tops... I've been silly enough to try a couple of timed runs and have managed mid 7's, even with pretty crap launches... It is so hard to get the power down properly until you hit 3rd.

I reckon with a good take off I would hit 7 seconds (If I could get decent traction)

I respect my car too much to be doing anymore of those though...and I want it to last..

Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

The angle the video is taken at would not give a true representation of the ACTUAL time, and spedos are 10% out, and I had a 210bhp 172cup weighing at 985kg's 220bhp/ton which oficially done 0-60 in 5.4seconds and 13.6second 1/4mile@101mph all official at santa pod. So I doubt your car very very much does 0-60 in 6 seconds. with a weight of around 1200kg at 182bhp wpuld equate to a power to weight ratio of 150ish bhp and a rough 0-60 of 7 seconds, your 0-100 is probably right at 16's though.

Re: Grande Punto Turbo Gone

First time in a long time I've ever seen anyone so happy to admit to doing 140 on a public road and post video evidence of the speedo, stating where it was filmed on a forum frequented by more than one member of the police...
