Had a superb day even with the 6:30am rise, well done Dazza!
Happy enough with 257BHP and 300lbft (especially as El only managed 240 :D) although may need a bit of tweaking to flatten the torque curve a wee bit.
Good to put faces to names hope to see more over the summer.

Good day today guys
Shame about my car not putting down true results, but got the guy to check if it is still mapped and it is. Tbh i know the car is running alot more than standard just didnt show it on the rollers

Anyways some pics from today

Another brilliant AmD SCN RR day put on by the team at AmD. Went smoothly as always and there was a very big turnout indeed, I don't know how many exactly, but I believe 30+ cars went on the rolling road today (including mine). Tried to meet as many new people as possible but I've probably missed just as many, it was that big today.

Well done to all who came along, there was some lovely cars on show and in action ;)

Personally I was disappointed with my rr run with 278bhp and 303lb/ft as she's gone past 300bhp before and way past that torque figure. Got home and removed the shims in my dv and it's back to how it was before. But there's always next time I suppose! Main thing is it's now how it was, but it would have been nice on the rollers as I expected plenty more.

Hope to see you all at meets coming up over the season. Good effort! And I want to thank D.K for arranging this year after year with AmD so it's possible.

:)

Ditto Tom. I was disappointed too only making 257 bhp and not the 281 I made when I got the map, I whipped out the shim in my dv and readie46 pointed out the hose on the charge pipe had slipped off so put that back on and car felt smoother from the off. Didn't get to meet many people but had a nice time chatting to those I did

Seems there was a few of us having some issues today, but me and you both have got free fixes from the looks of things, which are the best kind! :D

Wasn't easy to meet/talk to everyone today as there was so many turn up. I tried to talk to as many as I could but those who I didn't I'll try again at more shows over the season.

Great day out as per usual. Nice to catch up with familiar faces and meet new ones

Btw AmD printed my figures wrong, it was 420 bhp not 240 bhp :p Hopefully will one day get to the point when this car doesn't have a bloody issue or boost leak. Can't wait for that day :)

You'll have it sorted in no time mate :)

Good turnout today, nice to put faces to names :D Cars looking awesome in the metal as well
Good to meet you at last mate! Top man. The Cupra looked tidy.

Sorry I run out of time to take you out in mine, and it was also misbehaving until I got home and sorted out the issue which was DV related.

Cheers bud, you to. Your car looked a lot better in real life, seats are to die for as well :-o

Thats alright anyway, maybe next time ;) Least you got it sorted out in the end, nothing worse than an under performing car.
