    Why first off? Because it sounds cool?

    It’s designed to spool up a turbo not something that is an issue with the tiny stock turbos. It is hard on turbo and shortens their lifespan and launching it on two step there is a much greater risk of bending con rods.

    If you insist on doing it.

    - LD performance do a pnp box for under £120 for the AGU/AEB ignition module.

    - WOTBOX

    What turbo do you currently have?

    There are a number of ways to set up anti-lag, but your ECU must be capable, or you'll need an add on as above.
    You will also need to decide where the extra air and fuel are going to come from. This may be dictated by your ECU or controller.
    Your valve train will need upgrading to cope with the extra heat generated.

    As antwan640g says, anti-lag is very hard on the engine, and will significantly reduce the life of the valves and turbo.

    On a road car, definitely not.
    On a clubman race car, definitely not.
    On a race car with a big budget, maybe. Plan to replace exhaust valves annually, more if endurance racing. The turbo will need regular inspection.

    Lag... lol...

    'Lag' is normally the result of being in the wrong gear and/or poorly specced engine build...

    I remember when IanG posted his brilliant video of 2 Step Launch Control, Anti Lag and No Lift Shift with flames, pops and bangs before he rebuilt his engine.

    His "rod" picture still brings a tear to my eye - and this went relatively unnoticed

    put launch control on my car... used it all of 4 times and ended up burning an exhaust valve on cyl 3... i got off lightly by the looks of the pics above... i think that all tells you whether its worth it or not - you want to be inspecting your engine every few months then go ahead and do it lol

    what type of launch control did you map?

    2 step soft limiter or the mental guaranteed to ruin your engine type?
