    Default 5th gear turbo swap

    Is it just me, or did Jimmy DeVille just tell us that all you need to do is spend £1200 and upgrade your turbo to get 40 bhp more. Didn't mention injectors or mapping. Well seems like all the tuners on here must have it wrong.
    Me thinks he might be talking scrapped engine when it causes p4 problems due to lack of fuel, or have I got this wrong?
    Comments welcome.

    He only went to a hybrid turbo and when he rolling road tested it , it was only just over 200bhp so no harm done, mine is stage 3 and 240bhp on std internal and all good so at what his car was at can’t see it doing any harm at all

    True he probably could of got around 210 to 220 with a good map at around £400 rather than doing all that , he should of gone Garret and tubular manifold lol
