Ek het follotech gebruik, plastidip is nie so duur nie. Dis so R250 n blik. Maar as jy dit leke duk wil sprei gaan jy steeds 3 blikke nodig he. So paint is goedkoper en tougher

Just some feedback on the exhaust....
The car revs more freely. Engine feels smoother. Defenitly more grunt. I have to realy murder it now to get to 650on the EGT's. Where it often reached 650 on up heals at speads in excess of 120. Now I have to be doing 150 and the hill must be very long. It also cools down faster. If I drive normaly intown i had to idle it a bit to get to 200degrees before switching of. Now its below 200 before I even stopped.
I dont have any surging on the turbo or any excesive spikes. The turbo reacts normal.
Drawbacks.... due to lack of heatwrap the engin bay is very hot. I ordered some should be hear tommorow. Another thing is that I now really can smell the blackstuff when I stand outside at the exhaust on idle.

Cant wait to get it dyno'ed to see the diffs before I put a bigger cooler. Was it worth the 3k. O yes..... :blonde: :blonde:

Is dit 3 blikke per rim?

Flexi dip was R170 by builders 2 weke terug, nie seker of dit gewone of promo prys was nie...

I did some feul consuption testing the last month or so. With al the changes to the car ext. I wanted to see how it effects what.
My first test was with and with out roof rack. 1 week with and one week without. Same route. Same driver same conditions. From my house to Micheals house. From centurion to jhb and back everyday and back to my house. The difference was 0.7km/l. I still havent put the roof rack back. :lol:

Then after the dyno on the way to gansbaai I tested some speed driving long distance. Car fully loaded at the rear with 4 people. Tyres 2.9bar. Heavy wind from kroonstad to Beaufort wes.
120km/h - 130km/h GPS speeds. Drove 1050km in 10h15min. With a breakfast and a lunch stop in between.
Got 6.5km/l.

The next day. Not as windy. Drove 100km/h-110km/h GPS speed.
Got 8.2km/l.

A week of driving along the coast and up to stellies for wine tastings. In total just over 650km's. No load, just 4 people.
Got 8.5km/l.

So yes. Wind resistance and rolling resistance make more diffs in consumption then weight I recon :mytwocents:

After the dyno my car now makes 138Kw and 438nm.
I will post the results when I get hom. The 3inch freeflow with the right guy tuning the car made a wopping +- 31Kw and 120nm difference.
