    Remapping would be a start, you could also do the DPF removal which will improve responsivenes.

    What age is your car?

    A DPF removal and a good map is probably the best/easiest thing to do. Should be looking at 200+BHP and bag loads of torque.

    I had a remap and full DPF removal at R-Tech. Improved my 170 to 205 BHP and oodles of torque. They cut open the DPF, remove the innards, have it professionally welded back up, re-fit it and then after forcing it to re gen they delete it on software. This, combined with the remap made a huge difference. WELL worth it.

    A standard remap will see you at approx 200hp, a little more can be had with DPF removal.

    We have done many of these now with great results & smoother characteristics
