    Funny you say that m44lee as i was thinking of turboing it but i think that can wait till i have the rest of the car sorted


    TO DO LIST
    Lowering springs(done)
    Uprated brake hoses
    Uprated electric fans
    Inlet manifold conversion
    Alloy wheels

    i look forward to seeing it happen!
    but if that is the case you should only do mods that will be compatible
    ie dont bother looking at the short term power gains ie remaps
    as that will be a waste of money when it comes to FI

    what sort of time frame are we talking till you do go FI?
    cause as boring as it sounds dont do anything and save the money to put towards the turbo

    or sort out the bits that will need upgrading to deal with the extra power
    ie the brakes and suspension!
