Bamford Rose Phase 1 V8 Engine Upgrade (For Vantage 4.7 2010 Model Year onwards)
Phase One of Bamford Roses’ V8 Engine Upgrade comprises of a primary catalyst delete (from the OEM exhaust manifolds), our secondary catalyst upgrade and a reprogrammed ECU.
Manufactured to motorsport standards our secondary catalysts are more efficient, gas flow-optimised and constructed with high quality 200 cell bricks optimised for better performance. The catalysts are offered in either baffled or unbaffled style so you can tune your V8 Vantages exhaust note to taste.
At Bamford Rose, the upgrade of the catalysts is not simply a bolt-on job. As well as fitting the catalysts, the engine ECU is also revised and the spark strategy mapping altered appropriately.
The alteration takes account of the different gas flow characteristics from the 200 cell free-flow catalysts (compared to the factory OEM 900/400 cell catalysts) optimising performance by running the 200 cell catalysts at the correct temperature. It also ensures that the engine diagnostics are recalibrated to ensure that no false emissions warnings are raised.
As an additional benefit a three-position switch for manual control of exhaust bypass valves (fully open, standard automatic or fully closed for those early morning starts).
This cost-effective package improves engine responsiveness from just 700rpm – not just at the high end of the rev range like our competitors – and delivers a benefit of c+30 BHP / +35Nm to engine performance. This package is suitable for all Vantages (2010 model year onwards) for £2,250 excluding VAT.
