vid - cool, looks like it pulls like a train Im always astounded how FWD cars are geared compared to mine, you are on Manual tranny right? I can barely reach 85Mph before redline where it doesnt want to pull anymore.

edit - technical question, how did you manage to stabilise the screen so much? GoPro or some phone holder? all my tries with phone looks like Im driving over potholes :P

I cleaned MAP sensor weeks after doing all the other stuff, so would have been a combination of everything just being held back by the dirty MAP sensor. I think I'll still replace it anyway.

with regards to the camera, I'm just using a Go pro style camera (cant remember which brand!) which came with a stick-on mount. I guess the camera automatically reduces any shaking. I haven't made any setup/config changes to it!
