    Default Car is going back on the rollers

    last saturday i put my car on the rollers and it pulled 165 bhp with a remap, then on monday i had a bloke look at my map and he has tweeked it so its going back on the rollers on sunday - im hoping for 180 bhp if it dont go bang


    My car is 120 bhp standard, how much power do you think it would withstand?

    Think your going to struggle with 180bhp with an 8v mate. Although the 8v should develop more torque than 16v's. Chasing peak power is good for pub bragging rights but pretty pointless if its not sustained. No point having 180bhp for 1 second, better to have 160bhp for 5 if you catch my drift. its like the VXR's, there peak power after a map is around 300bhp, but its the 100 bhp they gain in the mid range that does all the damage.
