    You'd need a remap to up the boost, it's ECU controlled. Fitting a manual boost controller to gain higher boost
    will put it in Limp mode

    Decat, and airfilter mostly. Also give the EGR a good clean. Other than that, either a tuning box, or remap to release more power

    Be carefull with a tuning box bud, I had a dtuk one fitted brand new and I could not believe how quick the thing went! Absolute flyer but after about 6 months I could feel the clutch slipping so I took it off. The v6 with box makes big torque and the standard clutch struggles. Wasn't worth ******ing a clutch so sold the box
