Default Huge thanks to Enginetuner!

I decided to go for the Enginetuner CDB stroker + S206 and it was a great experience from start to finish.


On arrival - A cup of tea, a tour of the workshops, a chat about what I wanted to achieve, and a demo run in a similarly specced car

During the build - constant updates via phone + email

On picking up the car - a run in the car, all the new shiny bits pointed out, a wad of dyno print-outs, the maps detailed, and enough methanol to get me home


When I left the car it was running a respectable 400/370 and now it's running a grin-inducing 506/485, which I'm finding to be absolutely fantastic to drive


I'm hoping this round of mods will last me for a good while (do they ever? ), but I'm certain that more trips down to Plymouth will be in my future.

Thanks again to Alan, Martyn, and all the other guys+girls at Enginetuner!

sounds a good result but can you clear something up did you get the 2.1 stroker on a cdb ?

and i assume that is a v-power / methonal mix to reach the 500 mark

cheers

Another vote for Enginetuner, Alan, Martyn & the crew have done a cracking job on my car & always been very helpful. Won't be taking my car anywhere else.

Going by most of the firgure I've seen so far the toque almost matches the BHP or not far short anyway of it so a pretty good gain IMO

Well, it was properly done put it that way! We didn't supply everything needed as it was already modified, so it's hard to judge, but it's possible to do these things in stages. The drive in drive out stroker build around 4K with all the right engine parts for 500 bhp for example.
