Hey steve no problem we can def make a plan sometime :)

I just recently bought the miltek 4-2-1 manifold so hopefully it can give me some good gains as i see your manifold and exhaust gives some exceptional gains! :smt023..thinking of redoing my exhaust so hopefully we will see..


Wanted to ask, i see that the speeds on the dyno sheets stay at 137km/h, shouldnt this be increasing much? or has this got to do with the rev limiter?

Hi Reggy ,Well done on your miltek 4-2-1 you cant go wrong,good build quality and works much better than 4-1. Just a pity they r so expensive!you will be impressed with the gains!You will have to map your engine to get best results from your exh.i will help with advice if you need.the speed 137kmh is rev limit in 3rd gear at 7000rpm!chat later,Steve

Thanks DevenK and NightRiderST for the compliments, really turned out well!!

I am on my way too the airport in a hour, off to the UK. Going to Silverstone this weekend to help a guy running my products in the Demon Tweaks Hot Hatch Challenge. And then off to Brands Hatch the weekend after to help my nephew Shane Williams in the Adac VW Polo Cup Challenge. DTM racing should be good as well. I am also going to check whats available performance wise in the UK. Had quite allot of interest in our SWR products.

Regards

Steve

Thanks Drifter

After being quickest in free practice we thought qualifying would be easy. But this was not to be as Shane got bulked on his quick lap and then there was mayhem afterwards and the practice session was red flagged and he could not get a decent lap in. But he drove a amazing race starting 15th on the grid and finishing on the podium in third place, and we extended our championship lead by a further 8 points.

I have posted something on the Unichip for everyone. Check under Fiesta ST performance mods.

PS, you can always give me a call on 021 556 4643 if you need more info. I realised that it is important to have peace of mind when it comes to fitting ECU's like Unichip etc.

Regards

Steve
