    It's known as the M50 mod, it's more hassle if you've got TCS. But £500 for a genuine 20 -25 bhp and wider power band is well worth it.

    Ok so why the m50 mod and why £500, surely it's an easy mod to do and I think I can pick up the bits for about £150 also why is the tcs an issue ?

    you can pick up the bits for £150 sure but it doesn't fit straight on-you will get trouble with the seals etc-best to get one from alpina527 as his is fabricated to fit directly on with no other adjustments but if you want to DIY then theres no-one stopping you trying
