Hey is there anyone on here who's got an E3 GTS manual with the walkinshaw 3inch, OTR and tune and if so how much did they charge and what sort of Kw's and Nm's did it achieve.

It's not a GTS, but it might give you some idea what to expect.

As GR8T said, its not a GTS but I have had the whole Walky package that you are looking for. I had the exhaust (headers and dual 3") done shortly after I first got the car. Recently I had the OTR and tune done. Its picked up mountains of torque and a bootful of power. Final figures after the tune are 275rwkW and 678Nm. The cost is a little pricey, but you are paying for the Walkinshaw name after all...

ESERI3S, PM sent with prices.

How does the Walky gear compare in power, prices and quality of say vcm etc?

Well I got the VCM OTR, infill panels and tune done for $600 less than the Walky fitted price for a OTR, 'flash' tune no infill panels either.

Plus the Walky OTR is too small and looks tiny in the engine bay!

Wow so cheap!! Where at? I was going to get a vcm intake very soon but was wondering how the motor would run without a tune until I got the exhaust done aswell so it doesn't need to be tuned all over again

You don't really need a tune done for an intake, unless you're changing from MAF to MAF-less. Just get the tune done after you get the exhaust fitted as well.

Only problem being if u wanted to end up going mafless u should buy a mafless intake now, which would then Require a tune? Lol stupid crap. I might just stay with the maf?

Walkinshaw fitted the VCM OTR for me. Never mentioned their own OTR when I enquired prices.

If your putting an OTR on you will need a tune. MAF or MAFless. I no this one from experience.
Put a ramjet OTR on mine and anything over 4000rpm car keep going into limp mode.

I'm just thinking of going with the maf version as it's easier. If u keep it tho, get the intake, then the exhaust, then headers do I really need to have a retune after every bloody mod? :-s all my other cars I've owned I've done intake, exhaust and header mods without ever retuning until the time came where I wanted more power
