Got my Phase 3!!

Friday arvo I picked up my car with it's new found power. An APS Phase 3 kit. All I can say is F#$% this is great! The ute still purrs like a kitten when driving around town normally, but sink the right one and woooooooosh she off, and screeeeeeeech, traction is left behind. This is now exactly the car I wanted out of my T and I can't wait to get to calder on Friday to let 'er rip. After a 12.6 with Phase 2, I expect low 12's and with a lot of luck, 11's! Damn I love these BA turbo's

Notice how it's always the loser that says "it's only a game"!

Re: Got my Phase 3!!

Top stuff! Let us know how you go at Calder.

All you need to do now is set up another bank account and deposit some dosh into it on a regular basis. You can call the account the 100% New Gearbox Fund™. Maybe set up a similar account for tyres, too! hehehe

Re: Got my Phase 3!!

How much extra torque have you picked up in the lower rev ranges.

Is there less lag below 2200rpm or have APS kept the stock boost upto 3000rpm+ to save the gearbox?

It sounds like a weapon.
