Hello from down south :)

Hello, Ive been floating around the forums for about a month now since my purchase of my 2009 1.8 Type S, Absorbing as much information as i possibly can as ive well and truely fallen in love with my new motor So i thought it was time to say hi!. Ive got a few plans for the car floating around in my head which are, Lowering the car by 35mm on springs, Getting a Refurb and repray on the alloys. Fitting a 57i and getting a Remap. But its early days yet and im not a millionaire

heres a pic of my new motor i picked up:

Never used forever black, but worth a try as colour coding isn't cheap!
Not a tool at all Fast Road Setup (FRS) changes the camber and greatly improves handling, which I plan to do at same time as Eibachs, and before engine map.

Exactly my thought, That sounds intresting would anything need to be re calibrated once you've had FRS done if you were going to change the tyres for example?. Getting my K&N 57i this friday (payday) then a Remap done at TGM Sport once my warrenty has expired.

Nope nothing to re-calibrate with FRS. Have been in Neil's (messiahontriall) amazing 2.2. Has FRS and Eibach, (if memory serves) with Eagle F1 tyres and it's epic!

Please let me know how the remap goes.

Welcome mate! Great choice the CTS, absolutely love mine (keep thinking of a CTR though!). Has the best of all worlds, good mpg, good performance and comfy too, with lots of toys! Looking forward to seeing your mods on this one.
