    I've got one of Gunners heatshields, induction kit and s/s exhaust. I don't think there's much more you can do to get much gain without spending mega money though. I wish there was, I hanker for some decent midrange power. I don't think it's gonna happen with this engine though...

    The most ive seen out of one of these engines (same as mine) is 160bhp on the rollers. It had a totally custom exhaust front to back for optimum back pressure, so not powerflow, or magnex, or supersprint etc, totally custom which requires some extreme maths & calculations. Lightened & balanced single mass flywheel with clutch to match. Uneccessary ancillarys removed, i.e aircon compressor, power steering pump (using a non power rack from an E30). DISA valve delete, port & polish the head and finally a remap.

    These engnes are already fairly well tuned from factory, the standard exhaust system is very good, so replacing that with a random stainless system is more likely to lose you power rather than gain any. A cone filter will do next to nothing.

    cheers matey,!!!i think ours are meant to be 140bhp standard from factory?? but every1 is diff so it could really be 130 - 135 bhp?? ad be quite happy with 150bhp and just alot more responsive and maybe pushing it but 1/2 sec off 0-60mhp!!!

    there is sum company doing custom remaps on the m44's and they have been quoted at pushing out an extra 10bhp on the RR, for 250!!

    i am not entirely sure what its called will look into this but seems a bit optimistic!!!

    Theyre all meant to 140 from factory, but ive heard there were many different software versions used, some respond well to remaps, others not. So you could gain anywhere from 1-12hp.

    they might raise the rev limiter to get the higher bhp figure, kind of cheating really....

    be good to know how exactly they get the extra 10 horses out of the engine....

    cheers,

    aye my mate got his stock astra mk4 sri remapped and its was dyno'd with an extra 10bhp than standard and he was saying thats its not alot of bhp gain but you do notice a big diff after it was done, and i assume as 140bhp aint that massive but am sure you would majorly notice a 10 bhp gain!!!
