Thanks for the welcome :wavey:

Plans are in place for a mod or two but not sure yet to go with COBB or ECUTEK, either a SVM650R or Litchfields STG4?????

I went the Litchfield stage 4 route, plus uprated brakes and anti roll bars.
Nice being able to go faster... better to be able to stop. :D

Close call on an SVM650 or Litchfield Stage 4, very similar power. Comes down a lot to personal choice or who you'd like working on the car.

Go with stage 1 till you get used to it, no offence, then the upgrade options are only limited by the depth of your pockets or your preferred driving comfort.

Done Cobb stage 1, y pipe, now SVM 650r with a few add on's for track use, don't tell the wife.

Of course not - scared ya right! ;-) Honestly - the gearbox software Iain has is calling me and getting quote on Stage 5 (turbos, intakes, downpipes etc) and 750 BHP. Cobb has been utterly brilliant but can't be bothered to send all the way to USA for NIS006 and pay much more for the gearbox when I can get Iain to do it personally.

I hate this car - Crack would be cheaper and less damaging to my health!

PS Wedding plans going well? We should do a GTROC drive past haha

Phew...thought you had taken leave of your senses for a second there!

Yeah I have had a couple of good chats with Iain recently....turbos, intercooler, my11 turbo inlets would be good. 750 power is amazing...I just keep questioning if I need it...not sure I would use it other than VMAX stuff. Hmmm....I am trying to resist and your not helping!

Wedding stuff is pretty much sorted (so I am told :chuckle:)...been told where I need to be and when! Drive by would be excellent. I am getting married in Glasgow though so not that local for most. still got to sort the car thing out actually....

Haha no not gone mental. I don't need it - but I want it. Crazy as Arcam still be quicker ona track am sure. Plus insurance, warranty worries, upgrading gearbox.

So many reasons why not ;-( Anyway am going to get gearbox sorted with ECUTek as that may make me happier for a few months.
