    Hi David,


    Some facts about your turbo,


    A compressor wheel mod will be about 450.00 to 650.00 and an extra 150.00 for a billet wheel mod, this makes the turbo spin easier.
    To enlarge the exhaust side as well will be an full cost of about 770.00 but enlarging the exhaust you will have a slower spool up.


    A compressor wheel mod will give you about 30 Bhp more
    A full mod will give you about 60 Bhp more


    I personally think that the way to go will be the compressor mod with uprated injectors and a remap. I would estimate that the total cost will be
    about 1200.00 to 1500.00.
    I would need the vehicle for about a week.


    Have a think about it and let me know your thoughts.


    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Keith

    Can the clutch / gearbox take the extra ????

    Think I might have to give dreadnought garage a call, can't seem to find any uprated gearboxes for our cars.

    There some for the KV6 1.8 k-series and the V8, otherwise can't seem to find one for the CDTI model, unless I look at the BMW side of things.

    Regards to suspension, does anyone have recommendations on where to shop for them.?

    What am trying to do is calumniate how much I need save for that target.
    Then work out my bills and also how much I earn in a week and convert it to a monthly thing.

    Like to plan ahead at the same time, learn more about the engine and your input and information.
    I can do this and enthusiasm is improving everyday.



    Its just a damn good car and looks the part and I'm confident it will do well.
    Cars can be a pain in the backside, The hybrid has had quite a few jobs done I can say it was money well spent.

    To be fair, I'm not that interested in a diesel track day car.

    And good luck with your quest...................
