some dump valves can cause running problems, the HKS SSQV is a favoured one.

also be careful on choice of induction, some are problematic, you wont need an induction until over 350bhp, just a good panel filter.

If you can afford it, go for a remap to release the ponies. ( Would benefit from a good exhaust & uprated fuel pump with the remap.

Give us a budget and go from there.

(NB: The wife bought me the turbo for xmas, so her fault LOL)

remap approx £600 for ecutek, I think.

I live in Guernsey, so I cant recommend a good mapper near you.

There are some that may dissagree with vta dump valve, i am sure they will be on soon.

before you start modifying, get used to the car 1st.

What car did you come from?
