Any views? I have just traded in my LCR for a megane and am depressed . It has nothing like the poke. Or is it because it has only done 1600 miles??? I may have to change. Bitterly disappointed.
Than the 210 model yeah... 225 i'd say they'd be pretty much identical.. Meg definatly shouldn't be slower though.. Same power same weight (give or take a kg or 2)..MattRS225 said:Had a LCR before the 225 and to be fair there is not much in it between the two car's, if anything the Meg is slightly quicker than a standard LCR :wink:
ok, I understand, where do you find a tuner and hoi much does it cost?Alex said:Basically your car has an ECU which controls various different bits in the engine. Engine speed, fuel mix thingks like this.
A remap is when a tuner goes and alters these values and then the end result is a much better performing car. In this instance we gain about 40 BHP is power.
I've been told that the 4500rpm kick isn't from the VVT as the VVT kicks in below 2000rpm. The kick is due to the cam operating in the optimum range.Alex_172 said:I found my old 172 felt quicker coz it you used to get that sudden pull from the VVT
chrisfell said:A properly run in standard Migraine will out drag an un-modified Cupra R from a standing start. It has better power delivery - gets to max torque quicker. Suggest either the Migraine has one of the known problems - coils, injectors - or the Cupra might have been chipped. The Cupra engine can be seriously modified. Or maybe the engine was cold. Until the engine is warm the Migraine ECU wont let you use all the revs.
The trick with dragging the Migraine is not to use all the revs, keep it at 3-4k change at 5- 5.5, keep it away from the rev limiter. There's all the torque you need there and less at the top end.
