    They use the Z20LEL engine so have a browse through the turbo tech section to gain some understanding of what can / might go wrong.
    Its a jam thing

    Z20LEL = 170ps
    Z20LER = 200ps
    Z20LEH = 240ps


    z20let was in the mk4 not mk5, but pretty much identical

    its a must to get it remapped as the sporthatch oonly has 170bhp compared to the 200bhp 5 door.

    They do have the same engines just a different ecu map.

    He shouldn't have to look out for anything on a brand new car.
