    hi all. how can i make the low end power come on a bit more instantly? as it is at the moment when i floor it it seems to hang around for a second or two, and i would like the power to kick in instantly. below 3krpm it feels very 'soft'.

    A remap would make the power more accessable across the range

    Remap does make it better but an M20 flywheel and clutch conversion will make the biggest difference, or a lightweight alloy M52 fly and standard clutch would do the same for more cash.

    itake it then that this is not a fault, just how the 328's are? m20 flywheel and clutch is interesting, is it a straight swap or does it need modding?

    I might be wrong but i think you will also need the M20 starter motor as well. Hopefully someone will correct if i'm wrong.

    You are spot on Ash, the M20 starter is correct for the flywheel ring gear....
