Lethargic JCW

Gentlemen. My 2011 FJCW seems a bit "ordinary". The car is used every day by the wife who doesn't put her foot down. Does the ECU "learn" the way its being driven and therefore adjusts itself or does it just need a good blast every now and again? It is only ever filled with V Power.

How many miles on the clock?

I have a 2011 JCW

I drive it like a granny to work and back but open the taps on the dual carriageways

I give it a good blast when the mood takes me and Trash it the weekend and i have done a few track days in mine

The ECU will recognise the V power and run faster & smoother

The ECU does learn how you drive

If you want more noise n pops get an ITG Filter

Press the sport button to turn into a beast

Thanks for your input. Mileage is just under 9k. I do use the sport button but the wife sees it as the Devil! I will drive as hard as I can on the weekends. Funny you should mention pops. My 2007 S would pop and bang like no tomorrow but I hardly hear any in this car.

Do you mean a whole kit, or just a replacement filter? Mine seems to pop if i give it a blast then take my foot off, but always happy to have some more.

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
