Re: more bhp

forget even trying, turbo will be giving it's absolute bollox.

If it has hit 280 then thats a very very good result for a td04.

Re: more bhp

depends what you want, turbo wise cheapest decent option will be a second hand vf35 (200-300), more expensive option but get better result will be sc36 (750).

front mount is def a given, same with injectors

but your getting well up the level of tuning, may be worth dumping the apexi in favour of a stand alone to ditch the maf. Syvecs would be best choice, the lack of nock control on the simtek is definate drawback and not worth getting rid of.

also supporting mods like nocklink, gauges etc are worth while due to how close to the engine limit you are.
