    May I ask why you are planning to upgrade? Performance or looks?

    If on a budget, stick an OEM one on for the time being. It functions perfectly well and will do the job. They just don't have the longevity of the Forge 007P, but will give you a chance to get cash together.

    The OEM Bosch DV is about £23 IIRC.

    You'll struggle to hit a realistic 200 bhp with the K03-011 turbo thats on that motor - BUT - you will get close.

    With supporting mods you should see around the 190 mark. It's the driveability that's most improved, a night and day difference in fact.

    The standard DV will be OK as a stop gap if yours is in reasonable nick. A 007P won't make your performance any better anyway, so save the pennies for now and get the thing that really matter.

    Add a 3" downpipe to your shopping list. One of the best mods for the 1.8T bang for buck IMO. You can pick these up for about £90 on ebay delivered if you look, but here is one on auction: GOLF BORA BEETLE A3 TT LEON OCTAVIA EXHAUST DECAT PIPE on eBay (end time 06-Oct-10 20:13:37 BST)

    If you're going to buy another dv then buy a Forge 007p. No point spending on a standard one again, just save that 20 odd quid and put it towards a Forge.
