Many thanks to all that turned up to JBS today for the Rolling Road day, also thanks to James and Lee for your efforts and not forgetting Josh for his "Mr Joshua Catering Company!"

Figures seemed pretty much spot on today with the first car a 130PD actually putting out a very realistic 130bhp.

Im sure pictures and other results will be posted shortly but my figures for the day were:

Run 1 - Revo High Boost 6, Timing 9 - 235.5bhp, 244.4lbs (flywheel), 221bhp, 228lbs (wheels)

Run 2 - Revo High Boost 9, Timing 9 - 245.3bhp, 232.4lbs (flywheel), 224bhp, 214lbs (wheels)

Top, Top Day!

James had had enough at around 20:15, so we called it a night lmao!

We didn't go through the graphs tonight, so I don't have them yet... Hopefully I'll be able to get them tomorrow evening, so I hope to have them online tomorrow night!

Cheers to everyone that came, I hope you all enjoyed your Tasty MrJoshua Burgers? ?

Great day for a first timer. I had a blast. [:D]

Stock car with standard figures (150bhp and 181 lbs), so was happy. Got it Revo'ed, but no after run. James had had enough for one day (can't say I blame him, it was about 8pm when he finished up).

Nice to meet all you guys n gals. Very friendly bunch

Great day!

I got 216bhp and 252ftlb running Timing 6 High Boost 3, James recommended lowering the timing and upping the boost as timing was being retarded by the ECU. I did this but unfortunately didn't get time for another run.

What do you think you were pushing out after the changes?

Nice fast skoda[:p]

TBH it didn't feel much different however there was a torque spike on the initial settings which would be perceived by the driver (me) as the car feeling faster. I need to get it on the RR again to see. As the diesel boys like to tell us though sometimes torque is better than bhp, especially for perceived speed.

168BHP and 308LBFT for me, not too bad the figures BUT its losing all the power and dropping right off sharp from 3500RPM. MAF is ok, did a vag com run testing that out. hmmmm?

How did you manage so much torque Eddy? I wonder if its because you only ran HB3?

Im assuming by raising the boost you will increase your bhp but lower the torque (a bit of a tradeoff?) as thats what happened with mine on the second run, I gained 10bhp but lost 10lbs

The two graphs looked very similar but with the power just further up the rev range [email protected] comapred to [email protected]

Looking at your graphs that does seem to be the case, if I remember correctly Richard with the Octavia vRS got 220bhp and 245ftlb running T6 HB4. James also said his run suffered from timing retard.

I think an RR day doing mutliple runs on one car with various SPS settings would be very interesting to see.
