A bit of an update on my FD2, which is running Toda A3 cams, manifold and exhaust plus Mugen intake and mapped with Flashpro. Always been pretty happy with the performance but some of the datalogs suggested that the ECU was not playing ball for various reasons and a bit more might be possible out of the old girl.
Well, took it back to TDI South yesterday and Sam did a complete remap on the hub dyno from scratch - it took him nearly 6 hours and I didn't get away till after 7.30pm! Suffice to say that I'm absolutely delighted with the results (see below)
The power delivery is so smooth and there's more grunt, especially from 4-5.5K and after 7K rpm (even the g/f remarked on this!). Also, throttle response is much improved. I now feel that I have finally achieved the kind of driving experience that I had been hoping for all along when planning my series of modifications
I would like to add that I really appreciate the time that Sam put in into it, especially as he worked so late to get to get it 'just right'. I'm also grateful to Dennis, Sean and the other guy (can't remember his name) as I was aware that they were also delayed in getting away as a result of the remapping.
