Anyhow, so here goes, little write up i suppose....Had a tuning day with MASE yesterday...

Woke up in the morning.
Out til 4AM on a work do! Up at 8 to go to Chertsey.

So Off I go to fleet to pick up my mate and smash a tank of V-power in the old girl.
Gets to his, he gets given the keys cos i'm in no fit state.
Drive 100 metres up the road maybe and it threw the belt. Awesome!
Brand new gatorback at £60!!
He wasn't even giving it any beans either....
Strange one
Luckily, I had a spare belt and tools with me, so hungover to fornicate, I changed the belt on the roadside and we got on our way.

Gets to SRR about 0945ish and there was a hillclimbing S2k on the rollers having magic worked, don't know figures though.

Once he was done, mine got strapped on and ready to rock.

Baseline figure with the map I was running hit 215WHP/247fly..... read on
First map MASE uploads after, hits 245WHP instantly.
Couple of tweaks, more runs, more tweaks etc.... he settled ad around 253WHP/roughly 288fly.

Disapointed stoo.

Then he says, not bad for stock pulley, 4PSI is quite low boost.
To which I replied, this is a race kit with a 7PSI pulley......

So I tensioned the belt which I forgot about by the roadside.

Re-run it.
280WHP instantly, bang......

Tweaky tweaky, final figures as above.
283.6 WHP - 326.1 Fly - 182lbft Torque.
Happy Stoo!!!!
8700RPM Rev limit
3800RPM Vtec window lower limit
975RPM idle speed

Took it out for a run and holy eff it shifted.
However we had an issue.
Something was awry with the TPS sensor reading and at WOT it was showing 0% (only at WOT) and cutting the fuel and ignition instantly like a limp/safe mode....

Anyway, MASE had a play and sorted it out, smoothed the idle out to so it no longer almost stalls after the throttle plate is shut.

All in all, a really good day, top guys, great result.
Afterwards my friend and I went for a blat with Dave C to get some footage which Im sure will be posted soon enough... :)

Here's the pics....
Tying her down
Charlies awesome hair!

First baseline (~215whp)

First pull after MASE basemap (~243whp)

Final figure before belt re-tension (~249whp)

Next figure after re-tension (~277whp)

Tweaky tweak.Final figure :) :) :) (~283.6whp)

Dave and MASE doing what they do best....

Couple of gratuitous shots...

Thanks for the comments guys.

LOL @ Talking the way i do. Second nature I suppose

Re wheels/Tails.
I love them both.
The wheels give it more of an aggressive look and the rim stripe brings out the Red in the R in Type R. As for the tails, I think they give the rear a cleaner look! :)

LMAO @ Fat dude!
Im 89kg!!
