    with out masses of money there is 1 cheaper than the rest option, a bigger fmic, then a remap. other than that its bigger turbos etc. ps why would you want more power than a remap? surely 360bhp is possible with a remap alone?

    then bigger intercoolers should see you at 380bhp. the colder the air the denser the air = more power.

    Downpipes give the biggest improvement after a tune. If you have a remap you will need it tweaking for any mods. A dual cone intake is also pretty good value at under £100. Meth injection is popular in the US and gives significant gains but I've no idea how easy methanol is to get hold of over here.

    1. A good ecu tune or interceptor, products like the procede have a very long way. Functionality and options are just endless.

    2. downpipes are a must!

    3. Intercooler uprated

    4. Water meth, something that can be done relatively cheap, and adds good power, not necessarily by having the ability to add more boost. But by lowering air charge temperature and in return the vehicles DME will target more timing.

    Are there any good UK based tuners dealing quality upgrade parts for 335's??

    All I can seem to find is companies in the states like the aptly named "burger tuning"

    18" staggered BBS RS-GTs

    Don't get a piggy back unit, they basically just send false signals into the ECU and are known for causing issues in relation to limp modes/blown turbos etc. Have the OE ECU remapped professionally by a legit company. I'm currently looking for a compentant tuner as a lot of companies seem to just resell off the shelf tunes they by elsewhere. Let me know if you come across anything interesting mate.
