    I would like to get a the new section of exhaust & bigger turbo fitted then have it remapped and dyno’d. New Sachs clutch will be the next thing after the map.
    Any advice or recommendations would be great
    Hi Mate

    I got Thorney motorsport to do my full custom build, they are very well versed in exhausts now and make all exhuats in house.

    I simply went to Thorney to replace the whole lot, downpipe and custom 3 Inch exhaust, if the cat gets got enough, it will pass, went from Stage 1 (map only) to stage 3 all with TMS.

    TMS have just finished a GTX30 build on an Insignia, but its very expensive, id personally go for the hybrid turbo, as that will bolt straight on with what you currently have / have planned, with some mapping.

    You be good for about 380 to 400 bhp with the hybrid turbo and your mods (make sure the exhaust is true 3 inch from downpipe onwards)

    So the sensor was fixed (caught a very high speed bump that i did not negotiate very well), but the bigger issue.......... CHAINS!!!

    Unfortunately, mine have thrown up p0008 and p0017, so all booked in with nick150 to get these changed out next weekend hopefully, absolutely gutted, but, guess it was a matter of time, i thought i may have got away with this fix being a 2011 (Sept 2011) car.

    Will get pics and keep up to date on progress next week / week after

    Downpipe and exhaust is all custom made.

    Basically a full 3 inch exhaust from the turbo back including downpipe into Y pipe which are 2.75 inch into backbox. My manifolds are all stock / from factory

    TMS do cusotm manifolds for these cars, they have done one with a GTX30 turbo on an Insignia, Zirotec coated as well.
