    What mods to do?

    I want to do some mods on my Turbo to help it better in anyway ie breathe more better whatever is best. I ain't bothered about high power, I want to look after my Turbo engine and do whats best for it. Cheers

    Normal intake mods like Veccy pipe, panel filter etc.

    Then a full turbo back exhaust system will help it breathe. Bigger intercooler would help by keeping temps down.

    as buckle says above, veccy pipe, air box mods, panel filter. A good service with all filters changed does them a world of good too. A new set of plugs dont go a miss in them either.

    alot of people change the oil every 5 t o 6k and it seems to be about right. most people use NKG plugs also. alot of people have moved onto doing the 1.9 cdti air box mod now but the 2.2 one is still a good mod as they say.

    Is it good to change the oil even earlier than that above? Or can it harm the car? I will get some of those plugs for it also . Cheers

    It won't harm the car. When my mate had his mapped at Regal, they told him to change it every 1k
