i no i didnt mention this b4 but theres also a big stereo in the boot n a 2.5 tonne tom pack as well.


it could be the weight holding the car back, how much do you think the the tow pack and sub box weigh? it only costs a few dollars to put it on a weigh bridge then calculate your power to weight ratio from there.

as far as good weight transfer goes i reckon hard shocks and neoprene (black) bushes on the rear will make a huge improvment with the eta.

this is an old article now, but it shows what the NA is capable of with the right setup.

im runnin 15" stokies n ova line im in third n about 4000rpm i think. ive been drivin all day 2day n its been surging abit n i think its a s**t tune on the chip. the only difference i noticed was no speed limit. it feels like the car runs worse with the chip than it did b4.

Got a similar setup to yourself apart from the chip torque chip! That thing should pump along better than that! I would be expecting 14's at least!

Why not just go to another tune shop & get them to tune what you have?

Cheers
