    Default going to TorquingBHP

    Well, after the disappointing outcome with my BSR remap (i.e. not being available for 1.9s before 2005), on the recommendation of Big Pete I'm booked in at TourquingBHP tomorrow. From what I've heard they seem like a good outfit, so I'll let you know the results once I've played with my new toy!

    Default Torquing BHP review

    Me and my mate (in his rav4 t180) had a race last night (on our private racetrack) to do a before-after comparison. After 0-80ish the veccy would be a couple of car lengths in front. So we had our stats, and left this morning for cambridge. Got to Torquing at about 10:45, measuring 49.1 mpg on the way. Darrell dropped us to the park and ride and we had a look around cambridge while he worked on the car. Only thing was the remap was costing me more as I had to buy the wife some gifts to get out of the dog house! Darrell phoned about 1:15 to say it was all done, then he picked us up from the park and ride again in my veccy. We took it out for a little spin, and I must admit initially I coudn't feel a great difference. The power did seem to kick in earlier, and it definitely felt torque-ier, with smoother accelleration, but I honestly couldn't tell if it was faster. Also, the flat spot I had at about 2000 rpm was still there which I wasn't too pleased about. Darell said after the ecu had re-learned after about 150 miles, that should be ironed out.
    So, I paid my wad and got back up the A14. The car started to feel better the further I drove, and I felt 5th gear especially pulled well. By the time I got to the M6, it started to fly (whether it was me or the ECU getting used to the car I don't know). Checked the trip computer, and was getting 51.9 (and this was not taking it easy).
    We took it back to my mates, got on the private track again, and had another go. This time I am guessing I was approx 8 car lengths ahead in the same distance, my mate definitely said it was quicker, he couldn't keep up. Then, after driving it around roads close to home that I am used to, I can now say it is pretty rapid. I think in hindsight I may not have been giving it the full beans on the roads in cambridge as I wasn't familiar with them. I've had to come home now as the wife's been moaning that I've been out all evening.
    So far I have eaten (in no particular order!) a Jaguar XJS, an XR3i, a Golf GTDI, a golf GT, an alpha 156 and a Lexus IS250. The look on the XR3i boy racer's face was priceless
    Over the last couple of hours I can honestly say it has been driven hard, and I coudn't manage to get the MPG below 42.7, (The lowest I had it before the remap was about 32).
    Anyway, I'm actually looking forward to going to work tomorrow so I can have another play!
    Thanks to Darrell at Torquing BHP, who done a great Job, and Big Pete who recommended him.
    Oh and the flat spot seems less now also, will check in a day or so and see if it's any better still.

    Have put in a K and N panel filter as that may help ease the flat spot. Also get the cat removed as this will help as well. Put a straight pipe in instead. And yes it will pass the mot!

    I put a K&N in for this reason, it helped a tiny bit, but it was still there. How much for a de-cat? bit low on funds now!

    Basically u r cutting out the cat at one end and removing/unbolting the clamp the other end and just putting in a straight piece of standard pipe. Some places might weld it others might clamp the pipe on. Ask about your local exhaust fitters and see what they say
