you might have a smoother torque curve... feels faster but it doesnt have to be.

all cars feel faster and better after a service

Re: Why is my Turbogoing faster after service

Probably because of the bad press they be recieving regarding the PCM reflash of late... Everyone says it goes slower with the flash than b4, so if they tell you otherwise, then it must be true..

reverse psycology at it's best..

Re: Why is my Turbogoing faster after service

My car went harder after its 15,000km service, it didn't make any more peak power but it certainly got there it a much more linear fashion with a real hard rush right at the end.

Ofcourse now its got more everywhere and I go hunting LS2s LOL
