    TBH, in the higher revs I'm sure mine is more responsive. Seems to pull harder above 4k. But you have to rev it more off the mark at the lights etc.

    Well its not completely free is it... you still need to buy a USB cable and the correct pin for t'other end to plug into your ECU.
    The first problem is installation of the software as so few laptops now have an RS233 port so you need a USB adaptor, and there are two types, the later type 2 works fine, but it needs drivers installing.

    Heres what my home brew ECU looked like... http://www.kewengineering.co.uk/upgrades4mgs/edis1.htm

    You paid £!50 for an open cone?


    THey saw you coming!


    I got (Basically) the same open cone for free, off a mate who bought it for £20.


    On a diesel it sounded very deep and meaty, but there was constant induction drone, as there's no throttle butterfly.

    mate you got ripped off, my stickers add 15 each!! i have them stuck all over my engine, that way the power goes directly into the blood stream rather than having to find its way through the bodywork.

    edit: saying that, this guys stickers add 100 bhp each...http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=lJsjJVPeEOo
