MG TF Update 12 – 4-2-1 exhaust manifold!

So this was another ‘biggy’ so to speak and not that cheap either. It was something I’d been recommended to do and something that I thought would continue to improve the flow of exhaust gases from the vehicle and improve the breathing…

To brush up, the car has already had a closed induction kit fitted with cold air feed, as well as a TT Mk7 performance exhaust.

I had purchased the Janspeed manifold from PTP Performance and fitted by a mechanic friend as I’d seen the fitting wasn’t that simple and indeed some grinding was necessary to get the old flexi pipe away from the cat.

All in all good progress!

MG TF Update 11 – ZandF Remap!

My MG is now configured with a ZandF Remap  (thanks Mark!) – which is claimed to enhance throttle response, power (+12bhp) and economy.

After the remap I felt the car drove much smoother, and there was a noticeable improvement in fuel consumption…

Of course, it’s starting to become the right little bottle rocket, that is comfortable and ‘fun’ to drive as well!

Certainly, this is a recommended addition to the list of things I’ve had done so far.

My Adventures up North!

Hadfield High Street

Hadfield High Street

Toward the end of July me and a friend went North with my MG to attend an event at MGFnTFBITZ in Glossop.

I had my car remapped (post to follow).

Everyone seemed a great deal friendlier compared with ‘down south’ and we had a real great time.

We stayed in a B&B in Hadfield called the Hikers and Bikers B&B. The Landlord was very friendly and we went to the Chinese as suggested where we met the proprieters from the MG shop and a driver, stranded after the clutch on his MG went on homeward journey.

We finished the night in the Pub where we stayed until the early hours!

The following morning we had a cooked breakfast before making the homeward journey.

Recommend you all go up North and visit!
