Lol gutted,
Automotive parking light Vehicle Car Vehicle registration plate Grille
out today for a spin and got blipped by a bloody yarris, I know I'm only drive an r50 but could do with a bit more under the bonnet, I have changed out the coil for a benchmark one new plugs and leads, I have fitted a hornet exhaust system and fitted a ram air induction along with a fly way pedal chip to stop ecu lag, any other ways of giving her a bit more umph

would depend which one you went for really, cheapest are Newman and PH1 is mildest, modest performance difference in an otherwise stock vehicle, supplied and fitted from me only £360, smooth idle on stock map,

or look at something a bit hotter, some cam options are around 400 or more just for the cam and still ideally want mapping, hunting idle, will stall etc,

I ran the EW02 in an N/A car for a giggle, wasn't a rocket ship being a standard motor on a crap generic map with a drop in air filter but it drove to 135mph well enough for what it was, and ~100 to 130 seemed to be quite easily repeatable in a respectable manner, all things considered, was rather amusing on it's 175? T rated tyres ;O)

Had to raise the idle to help stalling, hunts at idle, would like to see what it could do if it had a manifold and proper map.... or other engine stuff, and maybe not the pea shooter stock exhaust it had😂

It's an rR50... Decent air intake, bluefin flash map and an exhaust manifold if you're flush. There's not much more to do before you get into cam/injectors and a tune that will not be cheap.

Had a couple of these, they're not good for traffic light GP! Concentrate on handling and stopping, keep your foot down and you'll keep up with most things if it's not a straight line.

Fun cars either way!

remove weight from the car, the front seats are heavy, lose them and fit a light weight racing seat

Don’t worry, my 240 bhp r53 got beat up by a Yaris too. Mind you it was a GR Yaris. Rapido!
