Converting to mems3 and having a ZandF tune up is always going to be worth doing...

There's an Emerald on eBay at the moment that may be worth a look Wink

Could you not get a VVC head, blank of the VVC and go all out with bigger valves and the better cams etc that you've got already?

Well you will need to tell me what you are starting with and what you want to convert.

for example I have a package ready to go for a Rover 25 1.4 to convert a mems 2J VVC engine and plug and play which consists of...
25 GTi engine wiring loom
25 GTi ECU with matched 5AS and fob
160 inlet manifold(smooth black top)
mems3 camshaft cover
VVC coil packs and leads
brand new temperature sensors for coolant and HCU(oil)
this lot is £190

if you let me know then I could sort out all parts required as I should have them all what ever it is Laughing

Sorry, yep it's an F Embarassed

Plug and play would be very much appreciated after the fun I've had today getting my wiring loom out Laughing Not even started to modify the other one for the Emerald yet Rolling Eyes

How much do you think for all of that?

Mmmm still something I'm considering, (depending on price obviously) would the fact I have aircon make a difference as I know its a slightly different loom?

So how many bhp is the Z&F remap worth then?

Having aircon wont affect it as it will just rquire the extra wires in the loom for the compressor and then the link in from the body plug direct to the ECU from the aircon control relay pack.

ZandF tune up will vary to what you have on the vehicle, engine condition and what you want in the way of the tune up but an average of 7-10% increase is about what your expect to get.

Conversion kit with a modified loom for plug and play would be about £260

You have a spare Milltek? I assume you're not referring to the one currently fitted to your car, as that is fine with MEMS3. My dad could be interested at the right price!

Hmmm, so what exactly is a "normal" Milltek? Do you just mean the tailpipes are in the normal outside position rather than in the centre like the one on Banshee?

I suppose it is an F fitting not a TF?

Still half and half about changing the TT although not sure that the Milltek would be any quieter in the cabin than the TT.

Hi Steve,Yup its a MK1 F fitting and it's the same type as Rays.
Rich I need to check it over, I was going to see if anyone wanted it here first for £100, if not I was going to bung it on ebay for £150.
I need to check the flange but will let you know once I'm happy it's 100%, you can have first refusal.
I'll start a proper for sale thread later in the week

Right back on topic, so if I can get an extra 7-10% with a Z&F remap I'd be looking at 175ish BHP...schweet Very Happy

well yes I have ....sort of Laughing I was just thinking that if this was a 'relatively simple' plug and play swap (ie something I could do with some spanenrs), for 'reasonable' money thats a good performance upgrade isnt it? put it this way its on the long term plan I think, as I still need to fit my polybush kit first.
