Just Got My Car Back From Northampton Motorsport,

Car Idles Very Well And Seems To Be Set Up Very Well.

When I Get The Car To 125mph It Dont Seem To Want To Go Any Faster.

It Seems To Me Like Its Not Getting Enough Fuel Into The Engine >>

Anyway I Spoke To Troy @ NM And He Said It Could Do With A New Fuel Pump And Regulator.

So I Went And Picked One Of Them Up 2Day And Fitted This Afternoon. The Cars Seems A Little Bit Better Than B4 But Still Is Being Restricted.

Regulator Is Running @ 5PSI And An F20 Gearbox

ANY Suggestions Please...

Your gonna die even at 125 Bloody hell that's fast. Got 104 out my Paxo but i was scared, sounded like it was gonna blow up

Maybe your speedo is mis-reading or it's because your using 15s.
