,think the gear ratios were different on the older ones,that'd explain it.

the older ASZ engines. They have been recorded at over 150bhp
with standard mapping. The ASZ tends to produce about 140bhp as stock.
His later car may also be remapped, just because he didn't do it doesn't
mean it isn't there.
By now there can't be that many of these cars left running standard power.

Mine was when I bought it. I genuinely thought it wasn't until I got
it on a rolling road to be certain. I got the figures in my sig so definitely not standard.
And I took a drive in another members "standard" car a week or so ago
and I'd bet my last fiver his car is mapped as well. Shame really as he was
about to get a remap to spice things up a bit.
I had a little run out on the motorway with him when we first
met and my mapped car could keep with him but I'd be lying if I said it was a doddle.
I remember thinking at the time that his car was rather swift for one in standard tune.
Now many months later having driven it myself, I can understand why he set such a
pace. Hard to explain but they drive more like a petrol car when they've been mapped well.
Standard cars are a bit flaccid in the higher revs whereas a well mapped car will pull
pretty hard right up to the redline. Having just gotten rid of a pretty high revving MX5
recently I've got to say I've missed having a proper redline. Next car will be petrol turbo

Bernie. A fully fledged grandfather he was often seen showing the younger guys a thing
or two round various race tracks in the UK in his slightly modified Fab.
He's got a mad little yellow Westfield thing now, the Fabia was too slow for him.
(He also ran a Clio Cup at the time)
His username on here is Sootie. Just cos you're old, don't mean you can't be old and fast
Sadly, I turn 40 next birthday and as part of my midlife crisis I'll be off to buy an Audi S3 when the
right car comes up. I've been looking at them for months but the right car just hasn't appeared yet.
I'm off on my honeymoon for all of September so unless one comes up real soon I'll have to
get looking again in October. Probably for the best to give it a chance for some new ones to
go up for sale. I have a very specific taste and will wait patiently until the right car becomes

EGR delete will require a remap anyway unless you like to drive around with the check engine light on.

Depends on how much extra fuel is injected low down. It's very easy to limit the torque low down. I'm on 112k miles still on the original clutch.
