    Send it to turbo technicis and get it converted into a Hybrid turbo and reconned at the same time. Then get a good map and every time you drive it have a grin from ear to ear

    Don't forget to inform your insurance company of the modifications otherwise they could nullify your insurance in the event of a claim !

    if you go down the hybrid route you will need some kind of mapping to make the turbo work properly otherwise it could be very smokey. a hybrid should see you hit over 210 bhp with right mapping and mods and then you will need a new clutch as the standard ones are made of pooh and wont enjoy the torque or you could just get a recon turbo from a reputable company and save yourself lots of money still im glad i took the first option
    good luck

    Well you have me thinking now as I bet a clutch upgrade and brake upgrade won't be cheap and after what I have had to spend so far. I don't know if it's worth a hybrid upgrade lol
