Anyone interested in doing a rolling road day at Tiger Racing near Peterborough? They have just put in a new 2WD dyno and are offering runs for £45 if there are 15 or more people interested.

Hi

I only have a standard 20vt but would still be intrested in this as I would be curious to see just what the engine is putting out after 7 years since new.

Any more news on this scooby??

My mate has a M3 EVO convertible and is also intrested in finding just how many horses have left over the years, would it be ok to put his name down too or is it Coupes only??

Cheers,
Dan

Just trying to gauge interest, I won't be going. The company involved contacted me and asked if we'd be interested, don't suppose they care what car it is \:\)

Hi,

I am new to this forum , but have a great love and passion for the Coupe. I have been fighting to get more power from my Coupe recently and am keen to know what it is putting out at the moment. Iv had a highbred Turbo fitted and replaced the Air Flow Meter and a few other parts after experiencing some running problems. Im due to have a superchip fitted very soon but would like to see the BHP etc before and after this is done. I work for myself so time of event is not a problem for me. I also only live 25ish miles from P'boro so Ideal location ! Keep me posted if this comes off as i am deffinantly inetrested to see if I can hit the majic 300bhp.

Superchips have a reputation for overfuelling in a Coupe - not good for power, not good for fuel consumption and fairly certain to result in borewash and accelerated cylinder wear.

Other than that, they're fine

If you want to chip your car, do a search (and be prepared for a LOT of results) on "G-Tec" - this forum has its own tame chip-writer, GrahamL. The results speak for themsleves. Just about all the 250 - 350 bhp Coupes use a version of his chips.

Egg, check the "How-To" section out on the forum, theres a walkthru for it.
Ftting a new chip took me 30mins, its a somewhat daunting but straightforward and easy job.

Have tigerracing had much to do with tuned coops before ?
All i need to do is fit my Walbro, then need to do a dyno run & a bit of setting up of the Greddy on the RR.
Should crack 300bhp if everything is ok.
