Posted 06 May 2012 - 15:44
booked in for beginning of june to have my fog light surrounds colour coded
then want to buy a dreamscience induction kit
new exhaust but don't want some chavvy sounding thing want something that improves sound but only growls when i give it some but will also give me improved power
then will get a stage 1 re-map done
thinking of getting a new actuater fitted to the turbo apperently will improve it?? but what do use think??

Milltek/Mongoose for a quietish exhaust that still growls when you want it to.
Don't change the actuator.
Stage 1 remap can be done without any prior mods.

some people on here run bluefin stage 2 on a standard car as its smoother than stage 1, not sure if you're going this route but just saying! then you can add the other items when you can, however as Daryl said above an intercooler would be a good mod after or at the same time as the map, especially if we're gona have a warm summer
don't think there is any danger of that lol warm summer that is
What would you's suggest intercooler wise??
I'd expect around 265-270bhp without any mods.
yeah thats more what i was thinking pal

cheers guys will have a look into it then i'll bin the actuater idea i think as everyone seems to say the same on that one was looking at a miltek exhaust too. thought i needed to get exhaust and induction done before re-map but now i know u don't think that will be 1st engine mod i get done. apparently hyperchips can do it for £200 stage 1 but they said they coiuld get it to 290bhp which i think is a bit of bull?
I doubt they'll get it to 290bhp with no other mods! 250 maybe ....

yeah when i got told 290 it made me laugh defo want the ds induction but think it'll be worth the £50 to get it fitted by them but while i'm on that i've noticed they move the ecu and it looks like its left uncovered after ds induction is fitted is it defo ok left like that? as in the standard casing its in don't it have a bit of a cooling fan on it etc etc know what i mean??
Have the RS ecu cover and if you order through dreamscience for you ind kit they'll give you a £50 discount code

I have a full mongoose de-cat exhaust on it, growls when stud and especially growls when being driven. Not chavy sounding either.
I also had the mongoose intercooler fitted, runs the entire length of my bumper grille. Keeps everything nice and cool.
