    Just get a re-map,then suspension and then brakes.
    The turbo's more likely to blow before the engine does.If you want to stay safe go for a re-map running 1.1-1.2 bar,mine made 267bhp@1 bar does the job.

    Thats because your turbo is only running just over 1 bar at max power rpm ie 5800rpm.You will have a shed more torque than me because you are running 1.4bar lower in the range ,boost is proportional to torque so thats why you have 300+lb/t and i only have 263lb/t.

    Hmmm.. 285lb/ft, does feel strong in the mid range but top end is ****.

    well 267 was AMD's figures so take that with a pinch of salt,on my tried and tested dyno it made 244bhp(max boost 1 bar) 243lb/t and 185bhp at the wheels,this was after a 2 hour drive and about 10 dyno runs so it could well have been heatsoaked,a standard new 225 leon cupra r made 216bhp and 203lb/t(max boost 0.95bar).
    I'd love to see some of these claimed 300bhp's on that dyno,revo took of there own cars there and they didn't make anywhere near the claims.

    Dan,

    Dyno Plot is a graph showing your power... rolling road session.

    Revo is a serial program. You plug it into your diagnostic port in the car and then you upload it to the ECU.

    Its the rolling road results. You get before and after, in theroy a remap done by Jabba / AMD gives you a custom map just for your car / personal taste.

    No you can't fit it yourself.. you have to get someone to do it for you .. but I think they're all off the shelf jobs so no customization ? ( not entirely sure though).
