get some headers mate , give rich at rb performance a bell to see what sort of price he can do you a set of gt spec ones for........................ the reason i say gt spec ones is you should still be able to get a free up-pipe as well............

plus dont forget to get them wrapped or coated either way is good .........

Uprated fuel pump is always a good idea if your having a remap.

hi bob, this sounds like an interesting option. do you think you could possibly give reasons for doing this. as you know i'm running a standard u.k turbo with full decat. why would an uprated fuel pump be helpful when having a re-map? are any pro's/con's to changing a fuel pump and would i need a regulator along with the pump?
you'll have to excuse my ignorance, still on a steep learning curve.
cheers m8.

Most scoobs run at .9ish bar of boost. When the car has no cats the boost can be lifted to 1.3ish bar. More air will need more fuel. A standard Fuel pump will be right on the limits at this boost and could even drop under at times which means det... You will not require a reg the std one is ok for this. I only changed my reg when going over 320 bhp.
I'm sure if you phone Bob Rawle for a mapping session he will advise you to uprate the fuel pump so he can get the best out of it. I have had 5 Scoobs and always uprated the fuel pump before any mapping. Its an easy job but try not to smoke when changing it....

I changed to an FSE pump when I had a tec3 but I had Pink injectors, Harvey Smith headers and Andy Forest uprated TD04 - pump is a must have as Bob has said, uprated regulator good if you can run to it (better safe than sorry!) but look at Harveys ported, polished and wrapped OE headers as they are cheaper and keep the torque low down.
