copy + pasted from other thread

Your kidding?

I've taken time off work for this - Its not acceptable!

Earlier today my boss rang up and offered tommorrow for me to work (forgetting I had booked it off) I reminded her why I had booked it off in the first place and she offered it to someone else!

The lack of advanced warning is pathetic! If I had known earlier I could of accepted that extra day of work.

And yeh great - book it for a weeks time, but I won't be able to get time off then since I have only just asked for a day off!

I'm tempted to pretend I never read this - go down tommorrow (they're local) and go 'I'm here for the corsasport RR day'... If they tell me to fcuk off, fair enough. If they go 'oh didn't you hear it was canceled, oh well since your here get your car on the rollers' then sorted!

I want to know the reason for the cancelation and why its such short notice!

Basically it was a cock up their end. They agreed a date on the phone and said see ya then -- fad spoke to them and there was a pulsar day no Saturday and they didn't have us booked in...

Basically some major lack of communication their end...

Don't worry I'll be having words... it's a real shame cos I really need to sort my fueling on the new 2L

Don't ask me I'm just the admin... we've spoken to them in between and all seemed fine so it just didn't occur they didn't know what the fuck was going on....

cheers tim, but may I ask - why was it left till the friday before to ring up and check to see if we were booked in...

Hmm, I was planning to go down there in the morning and talk to them about how much it'd cost just for a session on the dyno - but if they'll be loads of pulsar drivers I may get scared

Also surely it doesn't take a whole day to dyno a couple of pulsars - perhaps someone should of just arranged to have us after them, or visa versa. Would of saved people booking time off work / wasting a day.

P.s. I wasn't moaning at you about the 'checking to ring'...

Slightly worrying by the lack of other people's replys, I think quite a few corsa's may still arrive tommorrow.

Worst thing would be if they looked at their calander and looked at the wrong sat and thought they had pulsars in but then figured out that was next saturday!!

when you have words with them try to get a deal - like a discount for next time!

Just really sucks coz of time off and shit. Won't be able to get time off for a few weeks and I don't want to wait a few weeks to find out whether my car is 65 or 75 bhp - I want to know now so I can start doing things and know the increase!

Looks like some people still turned up http://www.corsasport.co.uk/board/viewthread.php?tid=89690

YOU DO NOT NEED A ROLLING ROAD FOR ME TO TELL YOU THAT YOUR CAR IS 75BHP FFS.

NEVER EVER EVER HAVE I SEE A CORSA B SXI GET LESS THAN 75BHP AT A ROLLING ROAD!!

Who cares, I Wanted to do it just for the experience anyway ... plus how many sxi's have you seen get rolling roaded, people say the earlier SXi's wern't 75! well I want to see.

No dyno graphs or anything have ever been posted up of any SXi being RR'd... hence why if you made a post saying 'is corsa B 65 or 75 bhp you'd have half people saying its one half saying its the other!'

I would've had some stuff done to my car, but I ran out of money. So I was gonna get it done standard so I knew what it was to compare to when I get things done.

I have rolling road graphs for my SXi at home, if I had a scanner that worked I would show you that on the two occasions that I have had my SXi rolling roaded I obtained 76bhp and 81bhp.

There were two other SXi's at the PTS rolling road day which also achieved a 76bhp and 77bhp.

Cool I just need to know for myself mate... what had you done to get 81 bhp?

Also, do you think power enginerneering could re-map my current ECU?
