Looking forward to about 3 years time when I start down this road!Duffy said:Yes mate. 100%
If you plan on getting 300bhp out of your engine you will need to. Just adding upgrades to the engine won't effect the power as the engine map is set at what it is. The reason for upgrading engine parts is so it can deal with the new map better. The basic stuff for a remap is:
""¢fuel pump and regulator
To get 300bhp though your gonna have to go much much further.
New pistons, new cams with valves, springs and followers, bigger turbo, bigger oil cooler, waterpump (if it runs off cam belt) uprated clutch, cool running thermostat...
