Hey everyone, been a while since I have been on, so apologies it's not been very often lately, was out for a blast last night, good bit of fun, had a play with a Civic Type R, now there are quite a few tuned Civics near me and I do know a few people running super chargers, however didn't recognise this one. I was comfortably ahead for around 15 miles, without him able to get past, always slow for villages, came out of a 40, went round a few bends in 4th at 60ish, then planted it coming out the bend. However he was level with me as I was coming out the bend then had enough power to get past.
My car is a 330D Sport, running 231bhp mapped and ample torque, I do need new rear tyres, but there was no slip, I have my EGR disconnected but other than that car runs well, however have been advised I "may" have a faulty/bad MAF. However generally she runs quick and true and like a dream.
Is it likely he got on the power earlier than me, so was able to get past, as I was going slower when I started to accelerate? Is it possible it was tuned? Or is there another possiblity? It just seems a bit of a difference, I know they are lighter, but still? Am I being unrealistic?
