Thread: Headers before a re-map

    Question

    Is it detrimental to the health of the car to fit my equal lengths for a few weeks before the turbo and link get fitted and mapped?

    Should i knock the boost down using the dawes or not use WOT?

    TIA

    What turbo and what headers? In general the headers will make a nice big lean spot during spool up. Not necessarily dangerous, but not optimal either.

    Assuming you're monitoring knock and AFR's, go for it

    Should be fine if you stay off boost.

    I may have an 8.95 second car, but I also have 8.2 second rods, & pistons, & they can do 30-130 in 4.01 seconds

    You could wind the boost back, or just watch your right foot

    Whenever you're ready for a pump/reg.

    Did it recently... I'd recommend you'd wait just before the remap.

    It was a real pain driving with a light foot and watching boost constantly.

    In my case, around 20% more fuel was needed to compensate for the HKS headers!

    Cheers
