Would the good folk at Torque Of The Devil be able to map these various Boost Controllers Dave? They're conveniently local.

Any other suggestions from the floor?
Sanspeeds in bexleyheath have a rr and they are good at mapping even tho may have to check prices as they are a little expensive.

Make it 5. From a personal pov I would prefer SRR as using a different dyno won't give a proper comparison from the previous result.

Where have you been hiding? Chris shut up shop in February 2011.

* TDI has a chassis dyno which doesn't produce willy-waving figures like most rolling roads.
** Austec is where we had Andy's charity day in 2008.-

I've heard a few people ask Charlie to set up cars but he's always directed them elsewhere. Not sure what the reasoning was though.

I'd definitely prefer to go back there as Dynos tend to vary widely and it wouldn't be a true result.

I once got a 48bhp difference overnight when I went to two club meets at two RR's in a weekend. By comparison I've watched the same 333bhp Supra go on SRR a year apart and score 0.3bhp less than a year before. That's consistency...

So, it looks like I'm organising SRR two before I've even posted the pics from SRR 1!

It'll have to be "or so" I'm afraid. I emailed SRR earlier and their best availability is early May...
