Top Darts  - you should have said you were going to SPC I would have popped along matey :D  Good result though bet your chuffed matey you just need to find another 50 bhp to hit your target. (what is the Evo 5 standard bhp?)

Have you had it remapped yet?? as you said above more boost will defo assist and I am not sure what the OE injectors limits are.

Standard is around 280bhp IIRC so up 20bhp nearly with just downpipe, filter & de-cat.

How did you get on lad? These evo's seem to be fit for a serious amount of power.

Manifold studs never turned up :(
Hopefully today & re-book for next week for the re-map..... at least it gives me a few days of driving to check for leaks...

I'm really loving the Evo, pulls like a train even at a bar boost, was out last night giving it a blast & I'm getting used to the way it handles now  :twisted:  awesome on corners but once you commit you have to keep going, if you lift the back end gets erm, a bit light  :shock:

Sounds like my 205 GTI's, had some proper brown trouser moments on wet corners. If you enter a corner to fast, just keep your foot on it and hope for the best. I have never been so scared. That's what happens when an 18 year old lad hops into one after owning a 1.2 Clio.

That's just how I see mine.  My Evo is the only other car, along with the gtt, that makes me grin every time I drive it  :mrgreen:

I've been down your way 'ish' a bit lately Steve.  My latest 'Sunday Afternoon Route' goes down the A29 through Ockley, then clipping Horsham, before heading back up the A24  8)
Been around these cars for too damn long!

I like the Ockley back roads lovely drive in the summer but as Steve's says gotta watch out for the fecking potholes.

Steve i love your Evo to matey looks fantastic wish I had the cash for one.

Fingers crossed all is good, I take it is being done at Mitisi is that the Mitis garage down Hove / southwick way?  I love going past there they have an old Rally Evo upstairs looks fantastic.
