    About 250 BHP and 400 LB/ft torque if memory serves me correctly.

    The cost will be your engine and clutch though

    Moved from General chat to relevant section

    General Chat Any non-car related chat, but still of some useful relevance to people i.e. not idle chat, comedy or spam threads - use the relevant sections for those.

    If you want power and relaiability then personally I would do these mods

    Air filter and air box mod
    Exhaust with cat and pre cat removal and if you have the money get a full straight through turbo back exhaust

    Remap

    And in my opinion get egr valve turned off and oil breather vented to atmosphere as you get much more clean air in the engine

    All of these should see roughly 200bhp hopefully I will confirm
    That on sat when I have my rolling road done lol

    200bhp is really pushing it tbh, the figure most see is around 190PS. To get even more you need to start thinking about upgrading injectors etc.

    Are they not available?

    I only know of one car going by the 200bhp and that 2was nutrons but that was powered with methanol.

    As far as I know the only other way is a hybrid turbo but...... I don't know of a 1.9 with one.
