What are the best mod to get for more power
« on: February 17, 2011, 09:15:24 pm »
Can anyone help to suggest any mods they have fitted to their AGP SS, what sort of power gains and links to the sites where they can be purchased  ???

I see it has been mentioned in previous topics that induction kits and intercoolers such as Forge may be a waist of time is this true?

I know for sure I want to get a new exhaust system from powerflow but am unsure on the prices they cost and power gains the achieve.

Any help appreciated  :thumb:

    All he is wanting to do is reach that limit sooner.

    short answer bud a tmc box £300 and will take you to 205 ish bhp. add a powerflow depending on what you ask them to do id guess 207-210 bhp after tmc and £400 at power flow. just a guess tho. my decat was £70 fitted again at a guess that was a couple of bhp added but really freed up the engine.

    Yes I already have the TMC and had the newer software on, supposed to be about 210bhp but haven't had it checked. I want a powerflow that won't make it too much loader than the SS, more of a deeper tone with maybe a few pops  :thumb: What would you ask the to do to achieve this? Maybe slightly wider all the way through and silencers removed  ???
    Koni FSD's isn't a bad idea but still no reviews on them are there  ???

    So would I just tell powerflow that I want an exhaust with a slightly deeper tone, makes a few pops and of course adds a few horses and they will make make it then call me to come in and have it fitted  ???

    When I had my powerflow done, I went in, Told him what I wanted (slightly bigger bore, no middle silencer, looking for performance gain, not too loud, 3.5 inch tips) he made it up, then I collected a few hrs later...

    Remember tho, all powerflows are different (Same material - it just depends on whos doing it if its going to be any good!)

    do some googling first, see if there are any reviews for your local one...

    K will do thanks  :thumb: I live in Jersey so we don't have a local one as such but I'm coming to the mainland to visit family next month so will have the choice of 3 places, somewhere in or close to Portsmouth, Gloucester or Manchester.

    Have you noticed an improvement appart from the noise you wanted? I thought a whole new exhaust system would add around 10bhp but it was mentioned only around 2-3bhp. It was also mentioned that the engine feels more free, does this mean it opens up easier when the right foot is put down  ???
