Rob - my car came back from Dan this morning, and have to say he is brilliant, only place I'll send my car now. He transformed it's low speed driveability, and managed to find an extra 14bhp on the rolling road - a top bloke. I know your in it for more than my visit, but every success with the project. Keep the updates coming.

Cheers James, Dan dropped me a message to say the results were good with the VHPD. It would be good to hear what you think to the drivability of your car now it's been fettled with.

Dan is a good guy, I first spoke to him around 18 months ago and although these builds take time it will be worth it in the end.
