Satisfaction is the biggest issue for me :D i was told you must have after market management! it wont even run...but it runs superb so im over the moon, outside til 12 every night has really paid of so far. although i didn't get in till gone one last night :(

ill go take a pic in a min and then upload it :) i only just found out i can e-mail photos from my phone for 5p each.lol

the next job now is the plenum and then tidy the entire engine bay up as i havent cleaned it in a while...just make everything presentable :)

o yea ive removed the fire wall as well you can prob see but it means my filter can fit right up in the corner with virtually no heat soak :D

Looks good mate :)

So are you running a standar ECU? as the MAF is still there.

Whats it like compared to a standard set-up?

yerp running standard 2ltr DEEP Ecu, it feels a lot more torquey and its def quicker than standard inlet its about on par with the four motorbike carbs maybe a little less at mo but its still got work to be done! as ive said before im not expecting the same gains as you would with after market management but if i can break the 160bhp mark which im very sure it will ill be happy. like i said before its a lot less money without the after market management so although there is more potential to it with management i see more bhp/£

plus more tasty noises :devil: i cant keep my foot of the accelerator just to hear it.lol

Im currently fitting motorbike carbs, but also got a set of GSXR Throttle bodies but wasnt going to fit them as yet because of the expense of the Engine management, have you fitted an idle valve at all? or just left that sensor un plugged?
