yeh lol. never mind tho. he did kill it after owning it 3days lol.

not sure what the 5 is running tbh. 16psi on low boost and 20psi on high, with fmic. poss around 150-170? that might be well over lol.

hopefully i'll find out soon

the corsa defied physics.... some say that it would take people on joyrides and hit 150mph between the 2 dual carriageway junctions in bury ;)
