    same engine as mine matey and unfortunately there isnt a lot we can do to be honest, a remap from Regal will yeild about 15BHP, not much for the money. wish i'd bout 2.0T if i'm honest. I'm fitting an extra cold air feed to the air box soon so hopefully will give a touch more.....

    The easy way to make som extra hp is to remove the catalyst. It will give you around 6-7 hp for free if you can do it by yourself. I dont think new exhaust and a remap is worth it on a non turbo engine.

    Trouble with doing that is the CAT is actually part of the manifold so you would require a new one, bout £500 plus....
