Finally took the plunge and had my MR fitted with the M800 Motec at the weekend. It was installed by Dave (Evo400) and mapped by Sam (The Dentist) and now the car is not only quicker, but the power delivery is much smoother, and the car is so much better behaved easpecially at low speed.

There is none of the usual nearly stalling moments I used to get when performing small manoeuvres such as a 3 point turn or moving in traffic. The tickover is rock solid and never fluctuates and the engine just seems to run so much smoother. This may sound like the car did not run well to start with but it has only covered 5,000 miles and ran as well as the day I collected it brand new. But now it runs better than brand new :D

The performance increase is also just as good. The car will boost incredibally smoothly even from 3,000rpm in 6th gear and I sometimes have to look to see which gear I am in as it feels like I am in a lower gear than I actually am, due to the way the car now pulls. Boost peaks at 1.7 and drops to 1.45-1.5 which is a vast improvement over the standard set up and the car just keeps pulling and pulling. This is probably the most impressive piece of kit I have had fitted to a car and it has the potential to do a whole lot more should I want to add a few more bits such as a ball bearing turbo and cams ;)

I would recommend this upgrade to anyone with an 8 or MR, or just about any car, and would like to thank Sam the Dentist for his mapping skills and patients as it took a while to set the car up how I wanted it. To Dave Evo 400 for fitting the kit (even with a dodgey back) and for some useful tips, and to Madmat for the use of his workshop and ramps :D

I think this is now going to get addictive :coolsm:

David.

I'll have a look in the morning. Although I did see three bottles of coke on the floor in the garage.

Wifes after a new watch. Perhaps I should buy here a diamond studded rolex. Perhaps I can get turbo and cams then. :D
