I found this but it’s pricey. I also sent AET an email asking if they can help us out. Thanks
Hi thanks for reply. Looks like this is the only decent options out there, and 37hp/60!torque is nothing to sneeze at. I think I’m gonna pull the triggerUnfortunately stateside we are not in a good situation. HP tuners is full of adventure, not sure I want to go there. I have been looking at those RaceChips as well. They actually seem to work well in BMWs and such, and have independent dyne results showing that much. Pumpspeed killed their MaxD world tuner right before I had finally talked myself into buying it, and no one there has indicated that they would ever make it available again.
I guess the good news for me is the 1.0 will always feel like a rocket ship compared to my Spitfire ;-)
I will await your review, I'm settled back into running this until it explodes, putting in a crate 1.0 and doing it all over again so a little more power seems like a good thing...Race chips is running a sale right now so I went ahead and bought it! Wondering if I should upgrade anything else. Only interested in spending $$$ if it equals actual hp
Crate 1.0? That’s awesome. I’m planning to rebuild the original engine that is sitting on an engine stand in my garage but waiting for the right reputable engine rebuilder. Ultimately I will do forged pistons and try to hit the 250 hp mark knowing I will have to upgrade the transmission along the way. Who rebuilds these things in the states?I will await your review, I'm settled back into running this until it explodes, putting in a crate 1.0 and doing it all over again so a little more power seems like a good thing...
6 speed would be helpful, I see the conversion kits but I’m not sure one can justify the cost unless building a rally car. HahaThanks for the update! I am still pondering intakes, I can’t imagine I’ll be doing a full set of pipes, but the air box may go. I do like the app control option, if nothing else to keep the wear to a minimum when just puttering. So you haven’t run the chip on a fully stock intake?
There are a few stateside sources for crate motors, Pumaspeed actually has them as well for a reasonable price including shipping depending on the exchange rate.
I’d love to switch this over to a 6-speed, it would definitely help this little motor. Looks fairly straightforward with factory pieces, be great to be able to get a less meh shifter if nothing else😉
