Re: CAPA Flasher for BA 6cyl 4l non turbo

you can see what mods i have..... a few but nothing too major. I am very pleased with the capa. The major difference is response and low down torque. It's the best mod you can do to your car. The only other mod which came close to making as much improvement was the diff. And then it was necessary to get the capa to make the auto behave itself again. Feel free to ask any questions.... more than happy to help.

Thanks for your reply dawal5
With the CAPA do you know if the cost of the CAPA flasher $995 is all inclusive eg tune?
If not whats the benefit of the tune & approx cost including CAPA flasher?
Do you now the approx b4 & after kw's increase after installing the flasher?
If you do a lot of bumber to bumber city driving & you drive the car in a regular fashion could you hasard a guess at the increase in fuel economy as a %.
I know thats heaps of questions but you did say you did say feel free to ask more questions.
Thanks

G'day mate,

i'll start from the top.

when i bought my capa i got it for $1500 including a tune. But this was the only offer available at the time, the price dropped about two months after i got it. i'd recommend the tune because every engine is different as much as ppl would like to think not and then you know for sure what changes have been made. i think a tune by itself is between $200 and $400, depending on where you go.

for me, my car started with a peak of 144kw (high for a ba usually about 138kw) and after the tune that rose to 156kw. This was before any other mods were made to the car except the diff. so no exhaust or extractors or intake mods etc.

but this was not where the difference was achieved.... the difference was torque. this is where you would feel the difference on the road. the torque curve rose dramatically, with the biggest difference being in the lower rev range. this is where you notice the difference. this brings a smile to your face.

fuel economy was improved by the capa as it leans the engine out a bit in the lower rev range, which would provide the greatest benefit in traffic. well... when i first put in the diff i went from getting about 430km to 390 or 400 out of a tank.. and the capa improved that again to about 415 to 420 a tank. you can work that out as a percentage. however i do a fair mix or driving from cruising down the highway to uni to driving through the hills were i live. draw from this what you will.

i think that just about answers all your questions....

i'll just add that this mod is the best mod i have made as far as power and respose is concerned. i know it is a few bucks to part with but it is well worth it.

Let me know how you go.

Des.

U may have responded to those types of questions but i have posted many questions and been involved in many others regarding the edit on a non turbo, none of which u where involved in, and haven't really got any answers.
U'r obviously not looking in the right places.
