HP boost

Hi guys

I'm a noob and have just bought a 2001 Turbo wagon. I wanted to boost the HP to around 250. Any advice? Re-map? Air filter? Does a re-map harm the engine in any way?

Cheers

Re: HP boost

The remap will obviously increase the power output of your vehicle and depending on how you drive depends on how reliable it is for you. If you drive it harder then naturally you can expect to decrease the life of your engine but likewise if you thrashed it without even having it mapped then you would expect this to be the case anyway. The remap does not in any way stress the engine so the remap itself does not affect the longevity, only your driving style. We have remapped modern engines with over 200,000 miles without issue so it is very unlikely that you will get issues.
