recently went to RPI in Norfolk to have my low mileage RV8 rechipped and the plug
leads replaced. Since then I haven't driven far enough to produce a detailed log
of the petrol consumption, but there is no doubt the engine is much more responsive
and doesn't stall when hot started.
Plug leads were replaced by a set of Magnecor leads. (Photo:
Wallis has also had
his RV8 rechipped at RPI recently and comments "I have to say I could
not have found RPI more helpful and whilst they do have limited resources - as
Chris Crane mentioned to me their own website needs updating - they are a great
little company who will welcome you with a "cuppa" and exceeded my expectations!"
