Re: my 2l 20v bravo

Ah I see good stuff. Great to see someone complete a conversion. How long ago was this done to the car? You must have been giggling for weeks after it was finished
Looks very smart though

Yeah thats true, the average joe wont have a clue MMmmm you cant beat the rumble of the 5 pot 2.0
To get more power out of the engine I recommend a GSR induction kit, this gave me 14bhp alone (proven) and a red dot Re-map is a must to. If youve got the 2.0 from a T plate car onwards this will be fine to re-map or if its from an S plate backwards these will have to be chiped, red dot also do this
Yup coupe 20vT is a goal I really want to reach, but fuel is just a killer at the moment

Re: my 2l 20v bravo

Looks pretty good buddy. Must admit I didn't notice the SX bits till after it was pointed out.

Theres meant to be a few things you can do to soup up the 147. other than cams filters and exhausts. Donnylad has fitted a 20VT fuel rail which he claims makes an improvement aswell.

Unfortunately the 14bhp gain with the GSR isn't over Standard as I recall Jamis car was way down on power before.

But yeah 14 extra horses over my old apexi set up.
What car were you in, I dont remember a Marea being there!?
