Yeah, its not as quick as u'd hope/think, but on the road under driving conditions its great.

I suggest 2nd/3rd gear

Makes the car so much more drivable though doesn't it. Bit more umph when u need it.

I'm suprized at the comment. I mean, its the general vibe i've got off ppl on here with recent 2.0 conversions (daimo, greg + a few others).

I remember first time out in my bro's nova valver, which was bog standard to start off with, and that was like MENTAL.....wheel spun + torque steer like u wudnt believe, but i've come to start thinkin that might have had a better cam + chipped 2 start off with after hearing that :s

Yeah, mine pulls me everywhere, mind u, et40 doesn't help

In the wet D4 will spin in 3rd, far too easily below that Tyres though i think are to blame.

Not the faster car in the world, but so much fun

yea thats the difference, you did DIDNT WANT more in nova.....it was too fast as it was, but strangely it did quite an abnormally fast 1/4, and blew away other valver nova's off mig.

Dispite this, i'm still suprized that u arnt 100% happy with a 2000cc 16v 3 dr hatch! lol
