Finally.....I have the power

Well after 5 months of dodgy tunes and running up and down the coast trying to find a descent tuner for my car I finally found a tune that works.

To put it simply Simon from Xtreme has turned a fluffy animal into a very angry beast. Idle along in 1st gear and just squeeze the throttle and look in the rear view to see a cloud of smoke which I had just left behind me as the Dunlops scream for traction. It will do this for 1st gear and a deep into second gear.

Anyone that says they still prefer the rumble of a V8 over one of these things has to see it for themselves. I am a big V8 fan at heart and I did miss that V8 rumble when I first got the T but not any more. The Whoooooosh will do me just fine..

Thanks Simon

Absolutely great news Glen!!!!!

Thats sold me, I know where my flasher's going when the custom tune time comes!

I'm afraid I still prefer the rumble of a V8!!! Turbo's fit on 8's too! ( check out Rod's ute!!!! )

Tho personally I'd go a blower if I ever gave up N/A.
Very pleased to hear the dissappoinment is behind, have fun mate!

C'mon you loosers(he he, joking) there's nothing like a V8. Any car can go fast but nothing sounds like a V8!

Phantom BA XR8 5 Speed Manual - WSID 13.293 @ 108.11mph with a 60' time of 1.974, thanks to XtremeFordTuning.
