the standard Almera GTi is 140bhp?

Also depending on where you go they have different gains to calculate bhp. place like TDI north use 20% gain that would make it 245bhp just at bhp-uk they like to calculate it lower. the main number is at the wheel at 203hp. so at 5psi 235bhp isn't bad if you ask me :) could up the psi but I'd rather have a stable car. Its rapid enough and on an android app that calculate your bhp base on the power to weight ratio the 0-60 was 4.9 sec obviously that's only if you can get the power down :D

We car is running fine be tweaking the boost a little and took it to 10psi wheelspins on 1st 2nd 3rd cant get power down. and foot down on 4th and 5th the clutch was dis-engaging which isn't great. Then took it down to 8psi which was more stable but still wheelspin. So currently returned it back to 5psi. It was good to know how car I can take it before needing to upgrade tyres and clutch.

Ok not been on for a while, been cycling to work a lot doing other stuff and basic taking it easy on the K11. Finally got a stage 3 clutch from the states and fitted. as the old was on the way out. Running great for 3 weeks and the extra strain on the already 1/2 nackard gearbox finally broke so it was back to taking the front end apart and replacing the gearbox also. The car is running sweet now since jan and there's no more clutch slip even at 10psi (but still plenty of wheel spins. )

Passed its MOT with only the 2 defects one of the front wishbones needed replacing and funnily enough, 2 new front tires that's gone bald... :p
