Had my unichip fitted yesterday at last got there a little late but my car went straight in and they started fitting immediately

Tony ( the old guy ) was very friendly and even cheerful possibly as he had Pauls wife in there with him who seemed very friendly and happy to take on board comments/views re customer service and to feed them back to the others.

Some strange figures im afraid, original run without unichip gave me 245bhp?? 30Bhp down on the figure last year ( at PTS )so I wasnt too happy Paul said that this could be down to various factors: Heat soak, incorrect tyre pressures, a wheel slip ( although he did a couple of standrad runs to make sure ). Also crankcase sensor came up on the widget appeared on the preunichip run

My car was running rich when on boost and needed timing adjusting too - so Paul got to work

After 4 hours on the rollers with several power runs totalling up almost 35miles on the rollers the final figure was 275BHP with 31bhp transmission loss torque was 250lb/ft.

Apparently all my runs were with a charge temp of 48deg alll of you will know the difference with the car when running 29deg and 48deg The fans just arent the same as when on the open road, but there is nothing you can do about that. Heatsoak/air pressure/humidity didnt help me to get the figures I was hoping for im also wondering if my boost controller settings weren't that helpfull I was running 1.3BAR with a gain of 70 and duty of 15.....was that too high/too low possibly/just right?

When I drove the car though for the first time I could feel the change on the road - seems more aggressive (different fomr others) and I was wheelspinning in 3rd despite having good tyres/tread left

I have a feeling if I got back for a cold run I will see a dramatic difference to the BHP figure - I did that last year and saw a rise of almost 25BHP over night

All in all the service was excellent at PTS, they really do know their stuff, the reception was baking hot ( so I missed out on that experience ) and they had a tv in there as well as a coffee machine and fish tank. if that doesnt keep you amused bring along a dvd to watch

Aquamist group buy anyone? ................

Well there is no doubting those results




Apart from yet again, a transmission loss of less than 10%

I wouldn't get too concerned , you've probably got ky jelly in the gearbox oil and super slippery wheel bearings !

I once decided to check my figures from Pts, and went to G-force and power engineering , they all gave me the same bhp +/- 2 bhp.

The only true way is to do an engine dyno , any of the 'roller' methods are approximations.

With the old forum, there were several rolling road days, and you can never please everyone ! , doesn't matter where you go.

Could be the air mass meter reaching the measure limit.

I believe it maxes out even on standard cars running standard boost before you get to the redline.
