Rolling Road
« on: 12:03, Mon 27 October 2008 »
Hi

As I am near Windsor and West London area. Do u guys know of a rolling road place that would be reachable for me to get my car tuned on the rolling road on?. I would prefer to go to a place that comes recommended and then at least hopefully be dealing with people that know how to tune a R5. Appreciate any feedback. :D

There aren't many, if any places that know R5's AFAIK.
If it was just a power run i'd say Track & Road in Rainham as they are very accurate.... As for jetting etc well thats a whole different ball game..

ok. I feel that I am getting around 15 to 20mpg at best since I had my carb jetted. I see my tailpipe is now black and get loads of carbon kicking out the back. I am not running anymore than 14psi if even that. I was hoping to get the car on a rolling road so that someone could set it up properly to give me the best out of it. Otherwise the car pulls, drives and idles fine. Any advise on where I should go with this?.
I myself would not even be able to find or get the jets out. I did see the jets were removed and just opened up a touch by turning small drill bits in there by hand by Colin AKA The Master.

If you seriously don't want anymore than 14 psi out of the car then standard jetting would prob be fine TBH (or very lose to it, maybe drop the A/C jet a little).
If you are willing to travel down to me i will look at the carb for you...
PM me for my address & phone number...
