Wink My 2011 Saloon Tweaked at Litchfield imports

Hi All just had my 2011 340R tweaked at IAIN LitchfieldS on Friday

I was there the same time as Sir CHRIS Hoy. Sadly he didn't ask for my Autograph ��

As IAIN rarely does subarus I am honoured. But knowing him personally for over 20 years he does put up with my big gob.

He did my remap and 4W alignment �� My car remap was all to do with engine safety rather than performance. Car running Forged Pistons, sports Cat exhaust and Cool air induction. After 340r remap it ran 368bhp 357lbs which is great ��

IAIN gave me a great walk around the two nwo new workshops etc. And looked at the mew LM20 special edition GTR. Although awesome @ 98K I was only 90k short ��

I was not on original suspension. I have ProR springs and It's much better. But no where as good handling or comfort as the first set up with Coilovers fitted.

I much regret removing the AST coilovers.

from brand new I tested both the 11Saloon with std specC suspension and AST.

Basically the std broke teeth and lacked exit corner grip at low speed. The AST coilovers were more compliant and gave better grip than std.

So I as no other option I fitted AST. From brand new.

12months later I was thinking of buying a T25 for fun and using the 11 saloon just for shopping and holidays. ProR brought or a spring kit and people raved about it. So I took off the AST's ad fitted "old" brand new suspension with spring kit. I had already sold the AST's

but it realised I lost rear passenger comfort and also handling 😡 Big mistake

Yes it is on a 2.5ltr.

looking at exhaust and plugs running too rich. Although better than too lean, it wasn't right. The performance is a little bit better than the original 340R map. It's More about me being happier with it, than performance gains

They can change roller resistance or do run in higher gear to test torque. I think

LOL my bum dyno works well. As said it wasn't taken there to gain power. It was only to tidy up the map and the Geometry 😎
