hey guys. well its gonna be outta these two and am just wondering from anyone with any info one way or the other.
main differences:
BPT is 1250 and they use the sniper tuner.
XFP is 1600 and they use the xcal3.

i have heard a handful of people say XFT over BPT coz they were unhappy with BPT but that coulda been some small incident.. i dont know.

i also know of BLACMAC performance but ive herd a bit of bad stuff about them so they probly wont even be in the ballpark.

any help appreciated. thnx.

If I had to do a tune on my car now, I'd go to XFT ...BPT were always too busy & too vague I reckon, and they seem to use a lot of generic tuning ...whereas XFT will take time to listen to you, and give you a real power or economy tune, depending on what you want.

At the end of the day, you want to walk away and leave your car knowing that they have listened to you, know exactly what you want, and that they will do their best to achieve it for you.

Plus the XCal3 is more universally known, and the preferred tuning tool nowadays.

Apparently MonstaTorque are good tuners too.

monster torque seem like a 6 turbo specialist place.

im sure if you spoke to the tuner you would get somthin similar to wat you want..
as you are paying for it.

You've almost answered your own question then.

I say XFT because they'll give you a more custom than generic tune ...and they are way closer to you.

It's your decision, but don't necessarily think with the other that you'll get back what you asked for..

cool. performance coils might get you 1-2 hp...
they arent much for a n/a car but useually used on a serious forced induction setup to combat blow-out and for better burn.

Well the guy who sells them told me i will gain torque and horsepower along with better fuel economy.
To get the best results requires a tune.
Just have to wait n see for my self.

If you are willing to do a bit of travel, you can't go past Joe at CMS Liverpool. Knows his way around the B series as well as F and E. Open Saturdays. As I said just a little road trip for you.
