    Send it to turbo technicis and get it converted into a Hybrid turbo and reconned at the same time. Then get a good map and every time you drive it have a grin from ear to ear :)

    Its listed here on their site:
    New Diesel hybrids – Turbo Technics

    and a clutch upgrade may need to be done shortly after... brakes is advised with any map after raising the power output.

    Don't forget to inform your insurance company of the modifications otherwise they could nullify your insurance in the event of a claim !

    if you go down the hybrid route you will need some kind of mapping to make the turbo work properly otherwise it could be very smokey. a hybrid should see you hit over 210 bhp with right mapping and mods and then you will need a new clutch as the standard ones are made of pooh and wont enjoy the torque or you could just get a recon turbo from a reputable company and save yourself lots of money still im glad i took the first option
    good luck

    Well you have me thinking now as I bet a clutch upgrade and brake upgrade won't be cheap and after what I have had to spend so far. I don't know if it's worth a hybrid upgrade lol
