check the ecu hasnt been chipped to add more fuel when it comes on boost too.... and the injectors probably have been upgraded too.

agreed something really not right with those AFR's

Well shes not going to be 105kw for long!

Got tony to take it into Tilbrooks for me.....not quite sure what they ended up charging

...As for an update on the car, its in having the gas system installed today so it will be interesting to see how it goes on gas when I get it back! Probably will end up spending the weekend playing with the computer/timing side of things!

Got the car back today after having the gas system installed......goes one hell of allot better on gas! It would seem that my power issues were mainly due to the fuel system.......looks like I am going to have to have a play there!

Will post piccies up of the new setup tomorrow

Well....looks like this toy has met its end......less than a week after it was put on gas :(

On the way to work this morning I had an accident, another car turning right pulled out in front of me and I hit him......Pics speak for themselves
