I would like to know as well.
Do you not have to upgrade the Clutch and or Pistons as well to handle the increased power?
I have a 150 and getting revo done to 200bhp without any mods, but a new turbo would interest me.

Unless you have quattro Id say you are wasting your money. If you went over 200bhp (more specifically the problem is the huge amounts of torque not the power) then with FWD it will literally be spinning up all the time.
I had an old focus diesel remapped from 135bhp to about 170bhp, more critically, to over 300lbs foot torque. That thing became almost undriveable in the wet, where it would spin the wheels up in 4th gear when the torque kicked in.

But because you felt close to death you never felt so alive...

There was an old £1500 Fiat Punto 1.9 Sporting someone bought and said goes like the wind.. yeah , right , f, me that thing was an early torque spike for sure , flew everywhere from low rpm , you just couldn't help but entertain yourself .

It must be dead by now .
