the torque is increased from approx, 150lbs/ft ish to 240lbs/ft ish so about double... Ish...

Power is from 230bhp ish to 350bhp ish...

Let's hope we can get some dyno graphs up soon.
That's a long way off double.

Power 1.45 times, torque 1.6 times

You should do some 20-80 runs in 3rd gear before and after (video them or something) so we can see the difference in performance.

Let's not get off topic, and find ourselves torquing about reindeer power etc.

Note all my ish's.... It'll all come out in the wash once some of us have them fitted and on the dyno and put the go pro to good use. :-)

Fair enough, Weaty. But do do some video runs before and after, they are a bit more meaningful than dyno graphs.

Totally agree, i think of the dyno is just ike a treadmill. It's not actually real running, great for improving technique.or setting up good habits but ultimately not reality.

I don't have a go pro but happy to.have someone sit in before and after to get some footage.

Tyres and suspension make big difference in getting the power down through to the tarmac also.

The HKS kit was always said to be a smooth power kit, for those who have concerns over FI kits and the associated issues with boost, so it's meant to be smooth and similar to being n/a but with an extra 100-150bhp!

Not that it matters, but what drop in mpg would you expect with the kit? Less than 20 around town?

That's why you should do 20-80 3rd gear runs. It removes the off-the-line shenanigans.

Looking at the 800cc sivs... Or injectors... mpg will be significantly lower than normal 20 or less maybe?

What do other SC car's get mpg wise who are around 400bhp?

My thoughts too. It's not a DD for me anymore so won't care, but interested to factor additional fuel costs into the process

No not correct you alter duty cycle and amount of fuel even 1000cc gets near stock Mpg.

That said when i added bigger turbo and larger injectors to the clio mpg wemt up to 50+!! So I guess it's how you drive it that depends what mpg you'll return.

Merry Christmas
