    Okay where to start: May car has done 130,000 miles and it has an APR remap. And the following has just happened in the sace of 3 weeks!!

    My turbo has gone and it whines like a super charger!!
    Gear box has gone(syncro in 1st gear , but will get that reconditioned)
    And my head gasket has gone. Also 1 spark plug is threaded in the head and can not get it out.

    So what i need to know is, if i want my car to be running at about 300bhp
    What parts would i need and where get get them from?

    For the JBS05 turbo, fitted and mapped it comes to around £2200.

    I can offer performance internals - if you don't mind me asking how much are you looking to spend on the car, what sort of BHP levels are you looking for and what modifications you have already, if any?
