    I think someones telling porkies, with what he says he's done it should be pushing around 230-240, not anywhere near 300bhp.

    He has listed the mods done but i doubt it is 'touching' 300bhp. i know you can get 250 maybe a little more by doing the intake and exhaust and you will need to even out the lengths of the exhaust manifold. a remap wont make much difference on an N/A car and can be a waste of money. There are some high powered GSis on here. not sure of output but they can explain a bit more

    when I had my GSI I had Remap, 3.0inch exhaust(de-cat) and including new downpipe, along with a pipercross Viper sealed kit and it RR'd at just shy of 240bhp, there is no way with what he's done he'll be touching 300, there's quite a few more things to do get up there.

    I know of a vec-b with the 3.2 in it which is touching 280 but it has had extensive work done to get to that output.
