Hi all,

I have fitted my tweeked "APC" unit today
it took ages to fit........


all of 1 minute .....

I took the car out for a little drive after, all seems fine now nice boosting motor....
with about 3/4 loud pedal the boost is at the end of the orange on the gauge

I will let you know when I have done so more testing

so now the T8 will cope with you 16v boys

I tweaked mine (T8) a few years ago - it goes about 1/4 into the red but always tapers back to original max boost by about 4500rpm. I'm sure its because of knocking ?

Hi Adrian,

Have you still got your T8...

I have not given the car a good blast yet only 3/4 load pedal, but as I say needle goes to end of orange easy. So should reach red no trouble..
I will let you know as & when I get time to play with the T8..

speak soon Paul

i would like to know what sort of pressure you are getting out of it. Was it tweaked by a pro APC lot, or you did it yourself?
i did mine myself (for a 9000 T) and get 15 psi peak, with no taper...
