lol, not on std induction it won't run 240bhp (by a long way)

he's a) got the numbers wrong to start with b) 'added' up mods


Look up a peugeot 306 maxi. this is just the seat equivalent to that, right?
not the 306 rallyee, the MAXI. go have a look.

Jesus sorry guys, i didnt see the MOMO accessories and the tinted windows, not to mention the 'genuine Seat' stickers.... cant help but think that a racing stripe could nudge it past 250bhp...

RobT - any thought on stickers, i have some stuck behind my door cards so that i only benefit from the 'performance' and not the 'look at me i am a twat' features stickers bring LOL

had PM exchanges with the chaps brother in law I think on CGTI - he says its 204 atw and is extrapolating to 240 atf - I have told him I dont think the figs are accurate, be VERY suprised if a motor, in a road car, with std plenum makes 240hp - I suspect more like 200hp atf if he's lucky but thats just my opinion

you may be able to get 240hp out of a car with std plenum if it was on daft fuel, very high compression, mad cams that would not idle and with lifed components, that was built by one of the best builders in the buisness, but this one doesn't sound like that to me given its fitted to a road car thats done lots (>10K) of miles on it
