    If you're talking about a 150bhp engine then we should be able to get that to around the 200bhp mark. Do a front decat delete to aid the turbo and the car will be a little more responsive also and have seen a few bhp gained from it also

    They have 130bhp standard. What can you tune these too?

    Ok I think they are simply a detuned 150bhp engine. So 170bhp is easily achievable, but I' think that 200 MAY be possible if it is a detuned 150 engine.
    Haven't had any of these MG's come my way so a little in the dark about them.
    Please tell me if it is infact the same engine that bmw use which produces 150bhp.
    take the mk4 vw golf 1.8t which uses a K03s turbo and makes 150bp. VW then made a 180bhp model which is still the same engine and turbo as the 150bhp model but VW remapped it. They can BOTH be remapped to obtain around 220-230bhp with the right map. This is why I ask if the engine in the MG is the same as in the BMW 150bhp.
    Just a quick thought, is this an early 2.0D engine? if so then i understand why its 130bhp ish, and that makes what i've asked above irrelevant. So assuming it is the earlier 130bhp engine and NOT a detuned 150bhp engine then I would think that 170-180bhp is what you'll be looking for.
    hopw this makes sense?

    Yes that all makes sence mate. Im not sure if its a detuned 150 or not. Im not very up on mg's I will have to do a bit or research on the mg forum to find out. I just always like the zt's and wondered what power can be got out of them as 130 bhp isnt enough lol not sure and diesel will be after the m3 though lol.
    Thanks for your help. If I get a diesel I will definetly get in touch with you about a remap.

    It's likely to be the earlier EDC15 136bhp spec engine, First gen Common rail.

    Thanks Enda, I've just been doing a little research myself and it looks like you're correct there
    So a 136bhp model, we should see it at 170bhp. Possibly a touch more?
    and to 747-727, I'll look forward to your future custom.

    Any idea if this is a good engine?

    Yes, it's fine, no obvious problems, no swirl flaps or dodgy breathers.
    It's not as advanced as the EDC16, but that only helps make it run cleaner and greener and hit harder emissions targets.
