    I was running a 120+ MGZS but I had upgraded the exhuast with a sport decat and staight custom exhaust and a BMC induction kit.

    It sounded great but in truth compared to the WRX I drive know it was nothing.

    I have a Grey Import V Spec running around 300 bhp though I need to have this dyno tested as I have unfortunatley run this on 95 Octane fuel not knowing that the ECU adjusts power to compansaite for fuel quality.

    Since I have discovered this I have been running the car on 100 Octane fuel hoping the ECU will re-adjust.

    Being a Jap Import I don't have the folding rear seats its a secure bulkheaad give it more strength apparently and has less roll.

    OH YEA DO YOU HAVE ENGINE MANAGEMENT. that makes the world of difference... get and exhaust that will reduce that back pressure on that turbo. just remeber when your racing ur in a all wheel drive car, DONT DROP THE CLUTCH......... ease it out you can blow the tranny... with that much power...

    I'm a Sales and Marketing manager in the UK and due to our company operatin websense I am resticted to web sites.

    However this site has been wicked, I have been here just over 2 weeks and already made some really good friends.

    We have a link as you can see UK and Xpat on my signature when ever you want drop in you would be welcome !!

    Anyhow can't beleive I am going to the POD and drag racing should come up against some tasty EVO's and GTR's though I am hoping my light V Spec will have them without cooking the clutch otherwise recovery vehicle home

    Just being polite making conversation, I was under the impression that why we all joined in the first place and as I am only new to the forum I thought best way to make new friends would be to link up with new guys in the New Members hangout.

    Or have I got the wrong end of the stick
