    T5 tuning?

    Post by Ryan1516A on Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:27 pm

    I am getting another t5 mk1 soon, The engine is completely standard at the moment. I was wondering if anyone knows of any good tuning setups/kits that are worthwhile putting on it for a bit more speed? [img][/img]

    Yep, Malossi is the only real kit option these days (unless you can get your hands on an oldschool pinasco 162). Personally I'd look at a JL pipe rather than a scorpion on a T5, or if you're wanting to save a few quid, a sterling (mild steel, not stainless).

    Then if you're wanting to splash out add in a reedvalve (only much kop if you get the cases opened up/matched to suit)

    Other options are a 0-tune on your std cylinder, have heard you can get plenty out of them, but it's a lot of porting work.

    Personally, I dont like the malossi t5 pistons.
    Wiseco replacements are the way to go.

    I would alter the standard topend. there's plenty you can get out of it. With decent transfer/exhaust/inlet durations you can make a much faster engine than a bolt on malossi and exhaust combo.
