Cant wait 4 my turbo ute

Hey new member and soon to be new owner of new Mk2 turbo ute, silhouette, sports leather seats, 6 speed , hard cover and hopefully APS 2 in the near future. Cant wait to spank some of the try hard pretenders around darwin or some real competition. Just cant let go of the old XH ute though it wants a blown clevo me thinks.....

Re: Cant wait 4 my turbo ute

Thanks lads. How much would an edit set me back do you think jetute? What are the pros cons as opposed to the piggyback units i.e. APS etc.

I have the edit on my ute set me back $1299 and it has three maps on it... valet.... 8 psi and 10psi maps.

I now run the 10 psi map and its fantastic The great thing is it takes only a few minutes to change between maps and if you want to return it to factory just flash the factory tune back in.... (this is saved in your flash unit when you download any of the programs into your car)

I dont want to start a war between piggybacks and the edits... but lets just say that for the BA the edit is the way of the future

I have bought injectors and am sourcing an intercooler... when I get these fitted I will get a custom tune done... a custom tune will set you back $300 and it will suit any mods you have done.

you cant get better bang for buck for the BA

Re: Cant wait 4 my turbo ute

Thanks for the info mate. Sounds like the edit may be the way to go in terms of performance and value for money...Bang for your buck. Have to look into it... Hopefully there is someone in the Darwin area who would be able to carry out the work for me.

if there isnt just call capa (capa performance) direct.. they send the box to you.. no work involved... you just plug it in under your steering wheel where the fuses and stuff are... choose the program (8 psi or 10 psi), press select and wait till the program has been loaded into your car.. its that easy

if you want a custom tune you will need a dealer in the darwin area to do that.

Re: Cant wait 4 my turbo ute

Cheers mate, I'll definately being ringing CAPA as soon as my ute arrives... Hopefully within the next couple of weeks. Too easy eh. Do you know what kind of power your car is putting out with those mods?
