    Picked the car up today..

    Over the moon with how it drives and performs on the road, much more driveable now on the road given the new power band.

    Chris has done an awesome job, I dropped the car off with a multitude of issues, 3rd gear gone, clutch, exhaust blowing, eml and airbag lights on, slight knocking from the front oh and a lack of power..

    Hes managed to sort all the issues along with adding some power, and cleaned it which hasn't been done very often.

    Just gotta get the car booked in for injectors and mapping now and get it on track and see how it performs.

    Highly recommend chris @ beaniesport for anyone wanting the painless drive in drive out meg conversion.

    Been using the car on the road now it's more drivable.. before the Na power made road driving quite frustrating and the lack of low end grunt I just didn't use it on the road other than driving to a track day.

    Done 300 miles since getting it back and all is well, highly recommend the meg conversion even for road cars.

    Other good news is I spoke to my insurance company and the price stayed the same. Only good thing about getting old! Haha

    Should have been standard ish power when I dropped it off.. going for 630cc injectors and mapping, looking for 260-270 max really as it's a track car.
