I know what you mean.. Whilst some call the Cupra a beast, for me it's a fairly average performer, but I'd love to give it a little more grunt and performance... Kinda fancied a dump valve for it :laugh:

Its a quick car, they would be lot lighter than modern hot-hatches i'd say and just get it the dump valve lol.
*innocently sips tea*

Does anyone want to be my friend? ^-^

I am kinda looking for friends irl. Cuz... I have none. :c

Depends what works best for the car, my car needs to be recirculation or it run like poo and eventually destroy the engine/turbo so i'm running a GFB recirculation valve.

I don't recall what I had on the Rover Coupe but the Impreza was a recirc as according to the purists, a blow of valve would loose you boost and would slow you down a bit... Can't say I'd notice it on a Cupra R mind but... lol :)
I'll have a think and see if I can find out through TSR Performance who'd do the setup and tune :)

seem to remember seeing Bucks as location (cannot swear to this)

He's certainly a quiet one....

I'll be heading to hong kong for a little over a month on the 27th. you don't hear from me after the 3rd of April then it is most likely I have been detained by the Chinese Government for being a British Spy. Please call the British Embassy to send the SAS or the SBS after me.

This trip came at real short notice. so tickets were £700 instead of £400-500 which we normally pay. On my day of arrival. it will be 28'c in HK. but it will probably feel a little hotter due to the humidity.

I didnt really want to go but my dad's not been too well lately and i have been tasked with looking after him while he's out there.

It'l be hot, the food will be great and the night time will be full of mosquitos and maybe the Chinese Government want to detain me as a spy. whats not to love?
