    Remapped the cabrio, are the figures good?

    Got the cabrio turbo remapped yesterday at Corten Millers (www.corten-millers.co.uk), and they fitted a Milltek precat decat, catback exhaust and DV26, (already had a CS panel filter and iridium plugs fitted).

    Figures show 240bhp with 270lbs ft torque. It peak boosts at 1.2 bar, and maintains 0.8 bar. Are these figures healthy? Its now an awesome drive imo, much faster with a massive increase around 3500rpm over standard, with the exhaust not too noisy even on full throttle. BIG thanks to the guys at Corten Millers, i'm very happy!!

    I was considering maybe fitting a VXR actuator to improve boost pressure? Will this help? Would a 3 bar map sensor do anything to my engine?

    Other than an uprated intercooler - next on the list is a 9L SMIC so i don't have to cut the bumper - what other bits can i add fairly easily to help gain a few horses?

    Complete novice where forced induction is concerned.

    The soprts cat is about £550 iirc, and the SMIC i was quoted £500 for, and then another £600 for a VXR turbo? possibly near £2k there with a further remap! LOL

    Will a 3 bar map sensor be worthwhile, or a waste of money?

    The torque figure is healthy!! The remap might have traded BHP for lbs ft, a sensible compromise imo!

    Are you going to replace the intercooler or leave as is? I've been advised this is a sensible mod to do in hotter weather.
