I'm bored waiting to get my Ep3 in for K100 and remap, just over four weeks to go.
I'll post the results up here, so for a bit of fun what do you think it has at the moment and what will it make?
Mods are Tegiwa m induction and 5zigen pro racer zz 2.5" catback. Fairly fresh millers nanodrive nt+ 5w40 oil and hamp shortie filter, air filter recently cleaned and valve clearance done about 6k miles ago.

My guess....
Before 204 bhp and 145 lbft.
After 218 bhp and 156 lbft with 25 bhp gain at 6k.

There are no prizes :laugh2:

Well it made 190 before mapping and 195 after, it's about 20bhp down :crying:
Turns out the chain is slack, something I should have checked out before taking it for mapping. I'm going to replace the vtec solenoid gasket tomorrow as it may have some crap in it as there was a stutter before vtec. Have to say the k100 is great, a nice power surge after 4k right up to 8,500rpm. Booked it in for 23rd to have chain and tensioner done, then remapped >:)

Vtec solenoid gasket replaced, what a PITA with my ape arms :laugh2:
Been for a test drive and it pulls stronger, can't wait to have the chain done with final remap.

So I'm going back on Thursday to have the chain, guides and tensioner replaced, then remapped. Can a stretched chain lose me that much power or could I be looking at something else too?

if the chain is badly stretched then the timing wont be perfect and might even bounce around a little
but as for power loss well who knows exactly

I hope that's all it is, it's a strange one because the car pulls OK despite the figures. Just done an oil and filter change, doing all I can :smile3:

At the fly, similar to 197bhp stock.

My chain was similar to this, not as extreme though.

Here we go again. Remap booked for Saturday, the exhaust mid pipe has been replaced and is free flowing rather than this (see pic) being in there! I'm hoping it makes the power I'm expecting. We shall see :)
Oh, and I'm running a 3" injen cai with a bigger filter, ramair foam
