    Hi all,

    As some of you know I've just had my BE 2.0 TDI 140 re-mapped and it is now producing 180BHP.

    Is there any recommended products i.e. air filters I should get that would compliment the re-map?

    Hope this makes sense :sorry:

    Any thoughts or recommendations much appreciated!

    Jack

    Nice one Jack - but wouldn't it have been a good idea to research all possibilities before you did the re-map ?

    Hiya Jack,

    Panel filter (K&N is my preference) and full exhaust will help to improve the overall power of the car.

    Although, it would have been better to introduce these prior to remapping if it was a custom map.

    Thanks guys - and yeah I know, a bit of a school-boy error on my part :)

    Think I'm going to go with K&N or Pipercross, although I'm hearing the best things about K&N!

    Thanks again, and apologies for my inept research originally!

    How far do you want to go? You could get an induction kit, turbo back exhaust, egr delete, uprated clutch kit, hybrid turbo, injector nozzles, water/methanol should get you to 280-290hp
