not got one, but i doubt fuel would be worse, but it would prob depend on what box you use with it. expect fuel to give around 30mpg at a rough guess. :)

0-60 should be around 7-8 seconds.

i'd think it would be better on fuel if you drove it steady as you wouldnt be loading the engine up as much

Asked Mike this very question about fuel consumption - he just shook his head and said there was absolutely no difference, if not it was better :lol:

my 1.6 uses petrol like their is no tommorow so i doubt it will make any difference with the 2.0! 0-60 should be better! anythings better than my 90bhp!

ive heard that if you fit a rs1800 box then you get a higher top speed but you dont get as quick acceleration, ive also heard but it might be wrong that it can go off the clock?? not sure on that might have just been a a bit of balooning from this lad i know!
