What should a GT manual make with......

My good mate has had his BA GT manual for three months now, before he took delivery he had fitted a full herrod extractors and dual exhaust (quad tips), herrod helix T.B spacer, SS inductions CAI, BMC filter and a Xede piggy back chip.

The reason i ask is that he has had two Xede systems fitted to his car, the first time he complained about the idle and power and ford (herrod dealer) checked it and said they have order a new one etc. The new one was fitted and he still wasent happy with the way it felt so ford agreed he can take it to a "performance place" get it tuned and they will pay.

So he has had that done and got a dyno printout and it showed 320 rwhp.

Dosent this equate to around 238 rwkw and is this figure a bit low for a manual Gt with these mods.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm not going to mention any workshop names as this may be what power he should be getting, it just seems a bit on the low side to me.

This is in Perth

How many Ks?, My absolutely stock GT-P does more than that but I have 65,000km. When I had 5000km it showed only 290 rwhp.

Boss 290s seem to get their act together after 20,000km

Re: What should a GT manual make with......

tell him to wait a few more weeks till the SCT computer editing program is available and get it tuned with that. Then fling his xede in any direction an xcedingly long way!

Re: What should a GT manual make with......

Fordy i know what you are saying and have read the crap that hypnodoc went through to get his unichip tuned, my mate went to one of the places that doc went to but i don't want to name the place.

But overall is this an ok figure or as some of you have said it is way to early to say due to the very low km/s. Do you think he should take it back again or wait and see.


I personally think he sould make that figure without the Xede and also were my calculations about right 320 rwhp equates to about 238 rwkw.

Thanks

Tell him to take the xede back and get his money back, then do a few more kms like another 3k then dyno it, then see if this edit is available as he will get nowhere with the xede or unichip as we just dont have the guys to carry out the tuning 100%.

Ahhh another victim of expensive WA mechanical dreams. The only way to get these things done right is to truck them or drive them to Victoria, been there done that. There is only ONE man in perth who knows much about making these things go quick and he ain't involved with Herrods, tell your mate to get on to BPT over here or drive it to APS in MELB
