Biggest surprise for me was Alex Jennings Corsa with powerbox as the graph is so smooth its un real and he made about 11bhp just off the power box alone!!

Unfortunately i didnt get many pics at all so please feel free to add them here :)

Awesome GTI are updating there website soon so will place the videos / pictures up then, im also awaiting a reply from the TV photographer regards the photos he took.

Fingers crossed we will be in TV in a few months - keep them eyes peeled ;)

Again Many thanks to all who made the effort to come to the day, roll on the next meet :nod:

Just like to say thanks to Kev g and astra nige for sorting it all out, This was actually my first ever rolling road ive been on and will definantly come along to the next group one too.

And my cars actually 17bhp up on standard with just the powerbox :p, which i will be taking orders on in a few weeks, cough cough shamless plug cough cough. Everything else is standard apart from a k+n filter.

I will try and post up a pic of my graph later as im well chuffed how smooth the power curve is considering its not even been remapped to suit its new mod.

Great pics everyone :cool:

Was a good day out and was nice to see a good turn out, thanks again to Kev and Nige for organising the day :beer:

I never expected mine to make the figures it did, so was quite shocked when 303 bhp and 329 torques appeared on the screen lmao

Seriously though, what do your wheel bearings have to do with the rolling road? I bet your still driving the car any way?
