    This bright-coloured wheel thing is oddly appealing. I feel a need for cherry red.

    @bbaxby@bbaxby There is a rumour you might be selling your car ?

    If you do ( vulture mode ) would you consider selling your coilovers ?

    A bit of an update on the megane, had it remapped at my mates garage JHM in Wakefield on Thursday 17th it wasn't done on the rollers but it was a live road map, I must say its a totally different animal now! He limited the torque by a % in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears and full torque through the rest. I obvs haven't got a print out as of yet but I know it's running 1.5bar of boost but hoping to get a print out soon.

    Ben , be careful. The Megs adapt badly and you might do damage.

    ano andy , i wont have near or over 300lbsft torque as i didnt install the 630cc injectors or a 250 turbo i basically just got my decat, filter and cooler all mapped in because it was getting confused with its self lol

    Ben, it won't have been getting confused. You only have basic mods.

    I was referring to the mapper doing damage.

    The Meg adapts badly to map work that is done incorrectly.

    It won't be a bad map he used to work for aet turbos for years before setting up on his own he was there best technician lol

    As I said , be careful as they adapt and start pulling timing.

    just another update on the megane, ordered an uprated clutch and lightened smf, as the clutch has started to slip in 4th and 5th under load. I must admit the clutch has done well seen as its the original from new on 94,000 miles haha.
