    VXR Turbo unit???

    How much more power will i get out of one of these? thinking of buying one off ebay, is there a big difference? and is it worth spending the extra £425 on it?

    Then it's not going to do a great deal for you. You'd be better spending the money on a pre-cat and FMIC imo.

    Just swapping the turbo will improve the drivability of the car.

    I recently have changed mine to VXR turbo, and acceleration is so much better without the running out of puff like I had with the old blower.

    Engine is a lot smoother as well, seems to go in gear better, best mod I have fitted.

    Probably not so good to fit to a low mileage car, but if you knocking on 30-40k is a good move with some std blowers failing around 40k.

    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?
