    Vehicle : Insignia VX-line RED Tourer

    Trim : No, over weight!

    Engine : Flux Core Capacitor

    Year : 1 A.D

    Mileage : Rising

    Default FIL's Rolling Road figures.

    Went to Midpoint Garage (MPG) today and had the car on their rolling road.
    Running BSR stage 1 and having a K&N fitted, managed to get 242.9 BHP and 235.2 lb/ft torque !!!
    Top speed on the rollers came in at 166 mph (ok, i know its less when on the road with headwinds !)

    Not bad at all from a 2.0 turbo.

    I'm one happy hector !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    2 runs, then i think they took the average.

    Had Shell V-power in this time. When it was at Track & Road, it was on standard unleaded from Morrisons !
