@ Bobby - Will ask Planet saab to do the needful.

@ Govigov - IIRC, Phase 3 is 300bhp and beyond. If you add a bigger inter-cooler to Phase 2, the output is 240bhp.

@ Sahil - I don't have traction control. Looks like I need better rubber. We did take a video on a better road. It should be up next week.

@ Jaggu ji -

Congrats Shuvd. Your car seems to be quite a screamer I think you are running stock size tyres, you need to upgrade as you have a hell of a lot of power on your wheels now. Minimum 215's or better still 225's.

My car was squealing just like that when I got my remap done. The 225/45/17's have done a lot of good to the traction - now there is no squeal.

Great going Shuvd !!!Enjoy your drive but be careful, that exxxxtra power of the engine can be .... Brakes doing fine ??

Cheers

WOW 225's & that kind of tyre squeal - you really got some serious power - eh ?? Or are the tyres worn out ?

Enjoy

heard that BlackPearl has converted the video of the run (tape) into digital format (.AVI) - now dodge this - the files are over 1GB

@ BP - please do something. upload the files in parts. use any of the following:

1. upload the raw splitted files @ rapishare.com (get registered - its free)
2. upload the files @ Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket
3. upload the files @ ImageShack® - Image Hosting
4. upload the files @ you tube (the site is blocked/listed @ my work)

so the news is true - a black 'fiat' overtook your car @ EM ByPass? what on earth were you thinking when the car overtook your car? (aah! d@mn! who woke me up? )

hey man! any update? did you get the vRS alloys? if not, then can anything be done to the present FatAlloys so that the new brake pads dont foul? how is the Silver Bullet running?

Car is running fine guys. Having fun with unsuspecting big boys.
Took the car out in peak traffic last week. Had no problems. Runs perfectly well at low revs.

What more can one ask for? Cruiser at 1500 rpm and a rocket at 6000. Would bring a smile to any face.

what problem was this? i had a similar problem in my innova (i know its totally different) albeit at 3000 rpm. turned out to be a clogged air filter.

You will probably need a bigger intercooler.

That will solve your current problem of the 6K rpm cut-off.

I had the same issue in my RS, after the new intercooler ( Forge ) , you can map the car to 240 bhp. Will rev cleanly all the way upto 6.5 K RPM ( when the limiter cuts in ).
