    Re: MY VR6 SOON TO BE R32 CORRADO

    Now finished at last!

    Have a massive flat spot in 2nd and a few other niggles to sort out like the very brutal drive by wire accelerator pedal! however it goes like fook

    Just got to work out how to stop a bit quicker the 280's just dont seem to drag it back down quickly or safely enough!

    The powder coated wheels are actually darker than standard however look lighter in the pictures

    Initial thoughts are very very quick, not very refined and hard to drive around town, but quality on the open roads.

    Need to get the accelerator pedal re mapped, battery relocated into the boot & another fan put in the bay as it does get pretty hot! Aside from that i need a strut brace and will maybe have to buy some new tyres for bigger brakes if i dont start to stop a bit quicker!!

    It was done by SWICT in Bristol, install looks good and i have a few points as listed to go through.

    It dod take 7 months when i was told 2! so aside from a neat looking install if you get them to do anything, make sure you tie them down on timescale.

    Cost wise i had loads of stuff fitted as the car was completely standard so exactly how much difficult to say

    Sweet! Glad you've finally got it back! There are always niggles to sort out, and I know what you mean about aggresive accel pedal, mines like it but I got used to it, but then again I've only got a measly 2.8

    Good stuff! Mine's in limp mode at the minute and still goes like fook You can tame down the throttle response in the mapping, mine's had it done apparently, wouldn't know though as it's still ridiculous. You are right about it not feeling very refined around town, mine's the same, very stop start but I think that's mainly down to not being used to the sharp throttle response! I'm getting used to it a bit more now.

    Now dropped back to where the conversion was done for a throttle re map, removal of flat spots and countless other post conversion problems that have arisen such as a flat battery etc!!!

    anyway, when i get it back i will hopewfully get it up to Stealth to see what is putting out and to see if Vince can do anything more with it!
