    I was under the impression that the standard air intake was good till 230bhp, so would it make a difference changing to the bmc induction kit?

    I doubt either of the things you're looking at will get you much power per £, the best choice would be either a remap if you haven't got one or hybriding the turbo then re mapping, or just going for a big turbo kit.

    I havent touched my exhaust or air filter, running 215bhp/315lbft no problems

    Neuspeed P-Flo Kit 2.0TDI - Induction Kits - Engine - Parts | Awesome GTI

    And also im just looking for a streight pipe so i get the turbo sound do you know any sites that do a straight pipe cat back apart from neuspeed ?

    Hello mate

    thanks for that just quickly will i get any gains with that and would i be able to hear the turbo more. Also would this be better than a panel filter ?

    cheers

    to be honest you wont get much gains but if you do air filter exhaust and intercooler then possibly hybrid turbo the remap then you will notice the difference

    get a big turbo and get it custom mapped. you'll also need an uprated clutch though to cope with the torque... my stock clutch died pretty quick after getting the milltek turbo back and stage 2 map
