In Reply to: UK Guys - I have my Dyno results posted by Roops on January 25, 2002 at 04:21:05:

Powerwise I have made around 25bhp with the cam swap. The EVOII's respond much better to the cam swap beacuse of the higher compression, larger tb's, big exhaust manifold etc. I started with 193bhp so I am happy with the improvements. As I said before the engine mapping has transformed the car, no more spluttering around while cold. Instant throttle response on cam, seamless power through the gears.

Torque is up from 184 to 195, and the red line is now 7800.

Cam swap and engine mapping was done by Bexley Motor Works - 0208 304 9797.

I can't remember what all the numbers are through the rev range. Believe me, it is sh*t loads better than a standard car to drive. I track my car, so the crater in the torque curve at 2000rpm really doesn't bother me, the rest of the performance more than makes up for it. Anyone in the UK (South East), if you are interested in what it is like, go and see Bexley Motor Works, Nigel (Proprieter) will let you drive his car which has the same mods.

That's about it.



As I posted the other day, we suspected that the dyno was giving incorrect readings, which proved to be the case. The car was remapped yesterday and I ended up with 219bhp at the flywheel, up from 193bhp. The car absolutely flies, the throttle response is fantastic and it just pulls and pulls. There is a small hole in the torque at about 2000 rpm which I don't really care about but after 3000rpm the revs just build really fast. I cannot recommend this upgrade enough, if you want to pep up your car, go for a pair of Schricks and an engine remap/custom chip.
