Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

Guys just for clarification that I don’t have the time to go into now. Come on Julian - cant throw that out there and not have time? :naughty: :wink: Can we assume however that for relatively comparative purposes to asses the changes in setup (supercharger/exhaust etc) that the difference in nm (ca...

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

Mmm ... were probably in violent agreement. I went to SaC not for tuning but for a prinout of kw and Nm at the wheel. At least they offered the alternative to R800 as the only option from another supplier. Remember that I already had the car tuned for 20k and SaC were just an independent baseline te...

[/quote] Carlo I think at some point you will see that you get what you pay for. [/quote] :thumbup: in principle. But in the aftermarket industry I trust very few. Price itself is definitely no guarantee of quality, nor a necessary ingredient in the equation. Happy to share the things that don't wor...

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

I looked initially at the KW graph But if I look at the Torque graph the numbers look poor. Is that because they calculate figures back to the wheels or are those flywheel values? Those are back wheel numbers There is another thing here, is your petrol pump delivering enough fuel? I know a lot of p...

Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

That is a mere 6 % improvement, I've always understood that around 8 % is the best you can hope for with exhaust and chip. Thanks for that info. I was also expecting about 5%-10%, which is makes me doubt the 30% increase quoted by RBTS. In any event they are what they are. Interesting hat after you...
