    As Lee has said, our cars aren't the best for towing compared to a diesel with lower end torque, etc. It would be nice if they were and we can dream :)

    That's a shame considering you paid for the software. I was a bit disappointed when they announced that there would be a pricing scheme for the mods.

    Fingers crossed it is something easy to rectify

    I've got to get on with my tuning. Currently trying to get the boost control dialled in.

    Prices can be a tough thing to provide considering there may be a lot of custom work needed.

    Modifying a T5 would be easier than adding a turbo to a NA 6 cyl engine, for a start the I6 would have a higher compression.

    Depends on how much you are willing to spend.

    When you pull the bonnet release the bonnet usually pops up enough to come out of the locks.

    It's a 3.5" ID MAF from a BMW 740i. Should allow up to approx. 1800kg/h flow instead of the 826kg/h of the standard MAF which apparently can be easily reached by a 15G.
