    Mmm no idea?? The other place I took it to at Hi-Tech Dyno also used 3rd gear... mmm

      I doubt it's actually dangerous, but I personally had my boost tuned to about 16-17psi peak, before slowly dropping to red line. There's no way I'd have my car boosting to 22psi, especially considering there's not much extra power gained running so much boost.

        I've actually had my car dyno'd in 3rd, then 4th gear the next run (30 seconds later) and the car made the same power (within 1 kw), so it actually doesn't appear to make any significant difference power wise. It may lead to increased wheel spin issues though.

          Mine spikes at like 25Psi at the moment, and its over 17PSI for a good 2000rpm, really need to re tune that boost lol

            so i should get it re-tuned everyone thinks??? It's only for a split second or two then drops off to 1bar until redline. But that's at 3000+ rpm to get that spike.. definately not like 2000rpm etc..

              Its not actually a problem and is nothing to be concerned about. The only reason we dumbed down the spike was because people were concerned about it. The small turbo on these cars requires a lot of work on the boost curve to get a flat curve because it spools so quickly. Steve Knight racing is a legend in Mitsubishi tuning and believe me, if it was a problem he would not have released it. Don't stress on it - go and enjoy the new found power

                  The guy used to work for Mitsubishi, was part of the various development teams and has a number of the Mitsubishi engine development guys working for him.
                  I'd be pretty happy with whatever he's done.

                  No-one has mentioned $$$ yet?

                    I chuckled a little at 'industry standard'. Its not like they have a code of conduct or professional standards for dyno operators.

                    Torque figures aren't rarely comparable, too many differences between cars (diff + gear ratios) / dyno's / dyno operators too make a big deal out of them.

                      If it is a safe tune and you are happy with the seat of the pant torque/power gains +the type of drivability that you want from your colt, then that should be proof enough of a good tune rather than comparing dyno figures.

                        They generally use 4th gear as its close to a 1:1 gear ration i believe.

                          Yeah 4th is often 1:1, the only issues is the 2.9/3.2/3.44/3.9/4.11/4.44 : 1 diff which follows and acts as a big torque multiplier.

                            hi there
                            i'm bases in mauritius and i'm stuck with my colt

                            i badly need a remapping of my ecu due the the boost restrictor in the ecu, limiting my boost to only 0.6bar

                            can anyone help

                            cheers
