    Turbo LEL and VXR

    So if i have a LEL engine ..that i am told it runs at 170 bhp ..

    what is needed to make it up to the same spec as a Z20 LET ..
    is it just the turbo from LMF and a re map or anything else ..

    What i am asking is ,what it the extra parts needed to make it up to the same spec ....

    O one more , what does the sport button on the dash do (is it ) 130 BHP up to 170 BHP .....

    if you have the 170bhp engine all you need is a map from one of the tuners to take it to over 200bhp as it has all the hardware

    no need for a different turbo buddy

    Ok then cheers ,,but what i am looking at is in the future is doing the re map etc to get in up over 245 bhp or more ..lol

    just that LMF sell the VXR turbo for around £410 but they cant tell me if it come with all i need on it ,as i just payed out £100 for the new gasket kit and oil seals etc to re fit the turbo on ,so while it is off i was thinking to get the better turbo , i know the VXR one comes with a better manifold on it .. but does it come with ati vater (sp ) or have i got to buy that also ...
    Allrwady have the pre cat pipe ready to go on and intercooler too ..

    i always thought it was the same turbo on yours

    but i maybe wrong there

    and you can map the LET to 245bhp so why not yours as it certainly aint any less than a LET

    Surely if it's the same engine as the 200BHP turbo's as in the 'H' apart from the software then courtenay/regal do a 240 BHP remap for both anyway.

    At least I think they do!!

    Yet - you can go straight to a Z20LET stage one map from a 170bhp Z20LEL. You should noticed that extra 60-70bhp!

    Give Courtenay Sport a ring for more info. 01692 404313.

    To achive 245bhp you do not need a new turbo, you need:

    Remap
    Exhaust system (Miltek)
    Pre cat removal pipe (Miltek)

    As Mike said call Courteny who can help you deside what's going to give you the most for your cash.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
