    Welcome to the site.

    Best option is to get a hybrid unit that is same but hollowed out a bit & internals uprated mate.

    240bhp is about right. Nigel got his from AMD I believe. Derv Doctor in ashbourne, and then the place in gloucester that done all Mikey's work also.

    how's the clutch stand up to the 240 bhp from 140?
    what's the total "kinda" figure we'd be looking at to achieve that?
    and more importantly, how difficult would it be to get the power down on a fwd??? :faint:

    There are lots of bigger turbo`s that can be made to your BKD engine but you will need at least a custom manifold to get it to fit. AMD, Derv Docotor etc all by in the turbos from either Turbo Dynamics, Turbo Active or CR Turbos. You will get about 230ish bhp with the standard hybrid but a lot more torque plus the power should last all the way to the redline.

    My cars a quattro so no point really unless it was a stripped out race car. Got a uprated haldex controller fitted though.

    Does a LSD make a difference in a straight line?

    Nope. LSD only helps when going around corners.

    I have a quaife lsd on my car and i must say that on the corners the car became much more reliable.

    LE: also i've got my own hybrid turbo from turbo technics UK and i can say i'm very happy with the results. A fried of mine installed in it's BKD a 3.0 turbo charger and the results are more than impressing: 265hp on a dyno. when i will find the dyno graph i will post it here.

    If you remove the DPF plus a remap a PD170 will make 220-230 bhp to start with. Untill you remove the DPF there is no point in thinking about fitting a hybrid turbo as the DPF is a major restriction and will just block and then catch fire.
