    Default How Much BHP D'ya think I have got???

    When I last had my car tested it was running 157 bhp with just the tuning box, now it has panel filter and a stainless steel long life system from cat back.

    I reckon about 163 bhp....?

    I wanna get hold of a performance manifold and cat for the Diesel. any ideas where I could possibly get em from?

    well the cat is easy... just knock it out as it's not needed....instant freeflow of gas....and totally invisible to the MOT....

    The performance manifold will probarbly have to be custom made.. just get all the pipe lengths equal..

    and as for what BHP...the only way to tell for sure is a trip on the rolling road....

    It's extremely hard to predict BHP figures dude. There's so many different parameters invloved. (air temperature, condition of engine oil, condition of rolling road involved, how good the RR operator is). I could go on and on.

    If you had 157 before and all the parameters where exactly (and I mean exactly) the same, with a CAT back and panel filter, your guess of 163 won't be too far off IMO.
