Sakkie also said my car is making power passed 7500 where Theo set the limiter he told me its pointless shifting the limiter with stock cams my car should make way more power i think if tuned right even without cams.

    The header might have shifted your powerband higher than where it was with the standard manifold. My car also feels like it starts to peak later than it did with the old manifold. Your limiter must be shifted higher. Remember we had this convo in your other thread about your tuning.

    Yip you are right so im gonna have to retune my car because of the changes i made with the branch and induction.Can you feel the difference once you fitted the megan branch and have you dyno once the branch was fitted?

    Haven't been on the dyno yet. Might go have a power run on the 2nd. Still need to get me a set of camgears pale I could feel a vast improvement with the header fitted. When the car hits 6k rpm it feels like it revs harder till 8k.

    Honestly the only thing that changed for me when i fitted the branch was the sound it sounds evil when i pull hard but more bark than bite but i think im gonna rather have her tuned properly first.I had a shoot with my car on saturday will post some pix shortly.

    Well the major difference for me is between 6 - 8k rpm. So if your car is only tuned till 7k rpm you not really benefitting from the header. As soon as it is retuned and your limiter shifted, your car will probably feel completely different.
