That'd loop would be where it changed gears on the dyno.

I've driven this car and it definately doesn't need tuning. 166kw might not sound like much but it hauls ass!

thanks for the comments guys.

ive kinda run out of small mods to do to it, well maybe chrome door handles but i dont know how it would look... so now thinking of some bigger things... maybe engine wise?

what do u guys recommend? i was thinking maybe forward facing plenum, cam or 3inch exhaust, which would u guys choose first

im sure you would notice a difference the turbo spools quicker and yeah i suppose would be a bit louder. the 2 1/2" will become restictive when you start trying to make more power.
