1 Visit to Torque of The South Last Week on Wed Feb 22, 2017 1:15 pm

Had my R down at Bob's last week for some power and torque upgrades and I must say, I couldn't be happier with how the car feels now compared to how it was before it went in. She pulls so much better and more freely now that I really didn't want to get out of the car after the drive home!

Speaking to Bob, he really knows the cars well and is a wealth of information on which upgrades to make for your desired level of performance and how to go about achieving it for the best price. On top of that, he and his team are really welcoming and his enthusiasm for the old Rs is second to none. On the way there in fact, the dump valve died on me and the engine was not holding idle, so I had to nurse the car by keeping the revs up and left foot braking practically all the way there. But within 5 mins after reaching Bob's place, he popped the bonnet and identified the problem, and then took it for a short test drive before checking the cylinder compressions and the spark brothers for the dyno run I had asked for following the planned upgrades.

From the spec I had before, I reckon the car was running around 310 bhp but it always felt like it was holding a lot back (evidenced by the fact that I managed only a 14 sec quarter at Santa Pod last summer), something that Bob also noticed on the test drive. But as the post-upgrades dyno result in the video below shows, hopefully I'll be able to hit much better times now:

The final torque figure would have been higher except the Mine's ECU I'm running doesn't allow it to go much further, but it does allow for a steeper and flatter curve at the top rather than letting it drop off sooner (as the standard ECU would do), so I may just stick with it for now. Oh, and all I'm running is a stage 1 T28 turbo with the standard injectors and MAF.

Hope to see you again soon some time and thanks a bunch Bob!

Pleased shes all going well for you now Moss and appreciate the feedback be it good or bad lol.

The car does perform well and pulls hard on the road too but cant push this one any further with the Mines due to the torque which she makes and holds mid range its just not got the fuel there to accomodate any higher boost but could get a little more by upping base fuel pressure.
We had already pulled 5 degrees back out of base ignition timing otherwise torque would have been much higher (too high imo)

As said......weve made more power on stock ecu but that was from a UK sunny which has backed off ignition map so is safer and easier as torque is much lower.
However think your car feels maybe a tad quicker despite giving away around 8bhp
as the torque curve on yours holds up until almost 6000rpm and its the torque which makes the car feel quick

So take it easy, have fun and i expect to see some 9 sec passes come spring  yoursofunny
