Re: Stage 1 Mapping 1.4T

Is 195 bhp safe for a remap got one place quoting 185 one place quoting 195 Funny that. Nearly everywhere I've seen advertising either remaps or Tuning Boxes seem to claim 180bhp for the 1400. Never seen one for 195. That's only 3bhp less than the 1600 as standard ! As always, the main figure to ch...

It's for the Hatch Shaky,yours is twin silencer for the ST
Cheers Valer, that explains it then - d'oh :oops: I know that the exhaust on the 1600 is definitely throatier than the 1400 setup on my ST. Bet the HB is the same so worth having for both that and the MUCH better looks. :D

Re: AC Whistling?

I usually dont hear the whisteling though, but that's more down to the fact that i usually have a whining, nagging sound, coming from the front passenger seat. I certainly hope your lass doesn't look over your shoulder when you're checking this board out fella, otherwise you won't notice the whistl...

Re: Soft clutch pedal on 1.6T

Do other people have a lack of resistance at the top of the pedal travel, for the first 30mm? I've never paid that much attention to it in the past so it may have always been like it. Just been out to my '66 plate 1600 Ollie and that does have just over an inch of travel before there's any resistan...

Re: 2019 1.6d 81kW died

I was going to ask if it was thick/acrid white smoke or light, more like steam so I could suggest whether it was unburnt diesel or coolant but glad to see you've got it sorted now. Good job it wasn't a pouring leak as you wouldn't have wanted it to hydraulic lock and bend a rod or summat just as cat...

Re: Some questions around lspi 1.4T

Honestly, i think vauxhall demands of them, they should deny that "this is a known problem" because of the possible implications if he told everyone that this was a well known problem...Maybe someone working for some media, would pick it up and stir up a shitstorm on the front of the news...

Here's the new 308. Personally I think it looks horrible.
Couldn't agree more :shock:

Mind you, that colour is nice, reminds me a bit of a slightly darker shade of green that my ZZR1100 was :lol:

Re: 1.6 Turbo exhaust box

Hi Just seen your message and yes it is available Cheers Dave Sorry to hijack the thread here but when you say it's a 1600 exhaust box, do you mean it's a replacement to give you the twin pipes look or is it actually off a 1600 coz my 1600 has two separate silencers, not just the one with twin outl...
