dyno numbers are just that, numbers.
Take it to the track and get a 1/4 ET and more importantly MPH. It will be far more meaningful...and fun

all i have been told by alot of ppl , it should be done in 3rd, its more 1 to 1 ratio
Yep I agree on that. 3rd gear is where it is 1:1. However as JonBays has pointed out the speed limiter cuts the engine out before full power is achieved . I always get lower power reading in second gear as opposed too 3rd so I must be against the norm.


Have u forgotten that ur diff gearing isnt 1:1? :P

I have also had more success in recent times in 3rd, as opposed to readings of up to 15RWKW less in 2nd!

Remember the higher gear does have more rear wheel torque, but it has proportionatly less revolutions per minute which should equate to the same rear wheel power, give or take due to physics re: friction

Lol Casper (it's Krissy) you always say that. But as I've said before, not everyone takes their car's onto the track and therefore rely on their rwkw.

Timmy97EL - don't bother asking opinions on JMM stuff because as others have said, it will cause a debate. Some say it works and some have had problems. And bear in mind that some people won't tell you in a post about any problems they've had so as not to start a slagging war so my opinion, PM the people you know have had work done by JMM and find out - people tend to be a little more honest when asked in private.

Everyone will have different opinions and remember that what works on one car may not necessarily work on another. There are plenty of performance places to choose from. Speak to a few people and then ring around but don't go with a performance place because you've "heard" about their particular products or because they seem to be the most spoken about because some places have a good rep only because some people haven't spoken up! << Make sense??

My only other advice is to really take your time before spending your money! Check out a few different places - get a few opinions and then go with what feels comfortable.

Krissy :D
