    263 cams + remap or stainless exhaust

    Hi all,

    First world dilemma.

    Car is in for some work - chains, head refurb, clutch and a load of other refreshment with brakes, abs pump and bushes.

    Originally thought I'd add a miltek system to the job list if nothing else major crops up. However when I dropped it off the idea of 263 cams and a remap was dropped in my ear, since the labour on fitting will be included in the other work.

    I think I'll be in the position where I'll only be able to afford one or the other.. What would you go for?

    I'm told and have read the 263s will increase midrange punch which is my driving style. However I think a nice exhaust note would be satisfying. I could add the exhaust at later date though.

    Cheers

    Whilst mulling this over in my head and I'll chat with Vince next week anyway to see what's possible, but guessing I could get the cams fitted and wait on having the remap until the exhaust is fitted later. I'm guessing the remap needs to happen with the car in its "final" state with all engine mods done (at this stage anyway) so not worth remapping till exhaust is fitted. There isn't anyhting wrong with the standard system mechanically.

    Getting the cams done while it’s in bits is a no brainer, no point pulling it down again later. The exhaust is just a bolt on and can be done at any time when funds allow.

    Cheers tonedef, yep that is the way to do it. I wanted the exhaust but that will have to be de-prioitised if need be.

    Assume I can run 263s on the standard map and I think I need to wait for mapping until exhaust is fitted or doesn't it not matter? Would rather not have to get it mapped twice!

    Ill be down at Stealth shortly mate Ill check your car out, white is a great colour for the Rado I wouldn't give it a second thought. I think a red front grill + rear badge would compliment the white paint work though. Rembrandt does a front and rear set for around 80 euros I think.

    Yeah I like the idea of the red badges.

    You going down there today? The car looks nice from a distance, no dents etc. But check out around the window rubbers and you'll see the rubbishy blow over on the sides that annoys me. I can live with it for a few years yet and at least I don't have to worry about damaging the paint for now whilst learning detailing techniques.

    Interior wise I'm probably going for leather outers and the porsche pepita trim on the centres. You gave me the ideas in the first place . I was eyeing up those cloth recaro's on ebay at the moment but thought better of it on reflection.

    Also - as the weather was so bad and the M1 mostly 50mph restrictions I managed to get 39.7 mpg out of it!
