ecutek results.

had my car mapped this morning by sam (the dentist) at the scooby clinc and came out with a healthy 278hp atw.

Had a couple probs wich dave (evo400) was kind enough to sort out for me, one was a misfire at high boost wich was due to plug gaps and running rich at high revs wich was due to a small crapy intake kit, dave fitted a filter that made an extra 16hp atw :confused: , amazing what diffrence a larger filter can make.

well happy with results car feels so much smother now and pulls like a train.

big thanks to sam and dave for doing a top job :D

Just out of curiosity what was the filter that was causing the problems and what was it changed to?

Good result richy, as you know mine made 275 @ wheels, which made the drive home far more interesting, all 240 miles of it :D
Can highly reccomend Sam and Dave (evo400) for anyone contemplating the Ecutek, go for it.

the original filter was a power enterprise intake kit, bout the same size as the apexi kit.

it was swapped for a large powertec ally mesh type one.

so if you have not got a dustbin lid sized filter get one fitted :D

just pulled some money out of my pocket to find the manifold bolt they took out to attach nock sensor, ooooops id better go stick it back in. lol

how muh did it cost bud?

I had almost exactly the same problem with the filters.

I had the Apexi and I had to junk it in favor of one of Dave's which does a much better job at flowing.

The Apexi easily fits inside it!

Not a bad result either. :coolsm:

The filters will be available via Dave's (Evo400) site very soon.

What's the filter like from a noise point of view?

I'm thinkng of removing the standard airbox and setting up a cold air feed but don't want anything too noisy.

It's pretty noisy (most filters are), but that was the only reason I purcahsed my first induction kit.

The Evo400 one is not any noisier really, it just sounds different.
