Hey fellas,

I have a BF XR6 4spd & have fitted PH4495 comp extractors & a Remus exhaust system.

I have been looking at getting a CAPA flash tune & am wondering how power I could expect to gain?

Cheers!

I have a similar setup (BA Futura see signature for mods) and i got 158RWKW.
You get farily good gains, and the price has come down a lot recently. Make sure you get a custom tune and dont just use the generic ones.

Sweet thanks guys. I was planning on doing further mods when the bank account grows. I will probably be looking at a Stage 2 cam further down the track. I'd be happy with an extra few kw's for now though. :D

you may want to check out CV performance if your in Sydney, Getting a custom tune from CAPA may be a bit hard without a drive to Vic.
CV is in Caringbah/Cronulla.
Or hills district you could look at Intune motorsport at Castle Hill.
they can do a customer tune for you and specialise in B series gear.

Dc_todd...

I read in an old thread back in 2006 when you had your el tuned at intune motorsport.

I'm going to get a custom tune in Janurary and was wondering who you would reccommend out of the following.

1.cresent motorsport
2.cv performance
3.intune Motorsport
4.Hills motorsports

Did you receive good service at intune?

Brent.

Crescent Motorsport at Liverpool would be my advice, they are getting consistent solid results.

nah stays preety much the same. might get a bit louder as you will be running a "thicker" air/fuel mix.
