    Default faster

    i have a 1.9cdti 120bhp and i wanna make it faster what are my options

    obviously a remap is on the cards but what else will a front mount intercooler make a big difference

    exhaust is also gonna get done but what is the best to get pipe diameter and single or twin exit

    can i fit a different turbo or put my boost pressure up

    what else can i do???


    any help appreciated

    de restrict the air box (a search will show you how) along with a high flow panel filter, decat & remap...
    Pointless going down the intercooler upgrade unless you are already replacing the turbo & running massive boost lol...

    A remap can be done to your requirements, safe, economical, most power. Tamper with any one thing, ie boost pressure, alone, and the rest of the system won't integrate properly with it.
    A lot of people on here have done "go faster, handle better" mods, depends on what your budget is as well as your intentions, ie better power, reliabilty, decent mpg. More info required I think.

    cant fit a vxr turbo petrol and diesel turbo's work very differently

    you can fit a fmic and a hybrid turbo but you will be lucky to pass 180bhp

    a remap alone will take you to 160 -170bhp which will transform the car

    a fmic on its on will make very little difference and is alot of ££££ after a remap not much else will make a difference without alot of £££ if you still find you want more after the remap you would be better off getting a 150bhp

    Bear in mind you are required to infform your inmsurers of these mods, and it will limit who will insure you, and affect the cost. Not declaring them is not an option.

    id say no you cant do that not sure tho but id say no as in an old car 8v one can 16v 2 cam so cam belt wont fit

    wheres your oil filler what side?? as 120 is on left 150 on right but the did do a 150 and turned it in to a 120 buy resticting it so you may have a 150 and not know it
