    Bonjour all. Haven't been on here for a little while/trying to stop myself looking around as you lot are making me spend money..! ;-)

    Smally question reference power/performance. I currently have a remap on my 140 taking it to 187.. Been looking at stage 1 hybrids.. I understand that if I was to install a hybrid turbo I should uninstall the remap, put on the performance parts, then retune the remap to the new parts..

    The stage 1 hybrid is saying on a standard 140bhp it'll give out around 220-240bhp.. Anyone got any ideas on what implications the remap would put out in top of that, i.e would it still be sticking on an extra 40..

    I'm not a knowledgable person when it comes to performance so any advice thrown my way is most appreciated inc. costs, any other parts needed etc..

    Cheers ;-)

    It'll give around 220-240 with a remap! Without it, the lag will just kill you.

    Duno how well the rest of the powertrain will stand up to the amount of torque you'll be putting through it. I'd defo upgrade the brakes at the very least

    You'll need a Front mounted intercooler and uprated clutch as well.
