    Lightbulb My Day at Rs Tuning ! Happy Results

    Hi everyone,


    I have not been online for a while as my Vectra has been away At Harvey Smith's. I wanted to map my car to stage 2 and wanted someone who had knowledge and experience of what they where doing. After conferring with many members on the forum and speaking to the right people Harvey came up Top Gun.

    Harvey explained to me in length what I needed doing and answered many repetitive similar questions which I continued to ask lol.

    I can say his work was to a very professional standard even to the extent I was updated daily and with pictures as my car progressed. He continued to communicate with me whilst being away on Hoilday. As for everything in whole I would like to say a Big Thank You to Harvey Smith MBE FOR all his time and work on car and his exceptional Hospitallity when I arrived at his house!!!

    I believe my results reflect his knowledge and experience.

    I had the following done from Harvey,

    FMIC
    HYBRID TURBO which was taken out of Harvey's Vectra which produced 268bhp ( But had more mods then me to gain this much)
    AIR BOX MOD
    OIL TO AIR Atmosphere
    Service bits
    Downpipe wrap
    I may have missed something so please excuse.

    My Results where on the day

    240.3 Bhp
    350 Ft Torque

    Paul told me I was actually getting more POWER REALLY but due to the Temp inside which was 30c and getting hotter due to the humity It was hard to gain more. I was told there is a calculation to be done which works at the actual bhp according to the correct temp to be around the 250bhp Mark and to come back on a colder day to achieve these results.

    I will be adding Water Meth to vehicle which I will be going back to Harvey to have done and to get remapped on a cold day results are expected to be around the 260-265.

    Vehicle : Vauxhall

    Trim : very

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : Nosey

    RS Have correction factors for the data, so you would get the indicated BHP at the relevant standard temp but would have actually been producing less on the actual day. In the winter when temps drop below the standard temp you would get more bhp. Water methanol would not give you a higher power figure but could help lift the torque figure and will keep EGT and cylinder temps down. I didn't see how much you paid for this though?
