wigton - cumbria
i recently recieved my 40mm Tb from Tricker, what a piece of kit, got it on my car in no time and took it for a gental drive, noticed a huge difference just running the car normally. after about 5 miles i decided to open it up, :eek: what an increase in acceleration, 4th and 5th gear has a great amount of pull now.
hehe, mine'll do that - and a bit more too :D

do you notice at 4k, the engine comes alive again for round 2?

Did you sort your idling problem randoman?
:D I was in it the other day and...

:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

It pulls so well. He hadnt told me it'd arrived and when he floored it i just said god this feels faster - you done something?!? then it clicked that it must've arrived :p Randomman - were you having tickover troubles? as so was matt (bad_boy_cinq) but all it was was the small screw stop for the throttle-lever arm that needs raised - what does your idle at arc?
adjusting that screw on the TB is a bodge. It is not adjusting the idle.

Mine idles at around 900rpm, and quite smoothly - despite the 40mm tb and 75 cam amoungst other things!
How much are they tho?

Tickover problem got better mostly, still does it a bit, the way it changes suggests the chip cant quite handle all the mods I've chucked in. Will look to a remap in about 3 months after I've paid off a few things
