The fuel pressure regulator controls the pressure not the pump so changing to an newer 255L/min won't effect the map.

Sounds like your mpg is pretty good already, but should be possible to achieve a bit more.

It certainly helped with mine.





I took my stock 20vt6 to Mr Flea a couple of years ago after she had been saved by Countrycruising. He recommended flea-and told me that a good live map makes the coupe come alive. I've always been wary of "remapping" over the years. Read all the horror stories...but my mpg in the coupe with the taps open was quite dismal. So I went to Mr Flea.

He asked me how I wanted the car-and I suggested a "Fast GT Car. Good MPG. With good torque"

Watching a live re-map with someone who really loves the coupe, on a rolling road, with the engine being worked is really something to watch, see and feel!

Around 1.5 hours later I had a transformed coupe. A small up tick in performance at 268ish bhp from a stock motor. No fuel pump/mods.

But in the road...wow. More performance then you could ever deploy. Torque everywhere-so you can drive the car 1st/3rd, 4th/6th etc off boost and not needing to tickle the turbo. Or deploy the turbo and see the countryside start to fly by.

MPG readily improved. With full tank from middle UK -my last eu adventure found me pulling in for a considered fuel stop with a 1/4 of a tank of gas left at the border of Belgium in to Germany. So 3/4 to get through half of UK, across france, and down through the whole of Belgium.

The return-including laps of the 'ring - found the car safely back home in blighty-with jut under 1/4 of a tank.

Sounds too good to be true but I got an uptick in performance that you can feel clearly- AND lower fuel costs.

Would recommend a live tuning session with Mr Flea without any hesitation. Your missing something if you have not done this imho.

Regards

MM

Running a bigger turbo is also better for when you inevitably get bored of 300bhp and decide that 400 would be more entertaining.... wink



this is what I'm running with lots of other mods.....running 1.4 and approx 400bhp ........yes I have to agree with Nigel its very entertaining shocked laugh

Ta! Will do some checking on the off set...

My sentiments exactly. I assume he was just talking about the 16V (non aircon) but still a bargain! Don't think I have seen any 20K Coupes out there either, maybe 13K at most.

Good news everyone, the organisers have listed the 13th June 2021 for the postponed 2020 event, fingers crossed nothing gets in the way of this one.

I'll update booking info over the weekend.

Alarm and I.C.E
20/11/2020 07:40
Replaced fob batteries to no avail. Do the batteries in the siren need to be serviceable for the alarm to arm/disarm etc? May have another fiddle but the reset procedure doesn't seem to work will miss remote locking but I guess I could buy a 3rd Party unit for that.
