    Whats your target figure?

    Straight bolt-on turbos are 15G, 16T, 18 and 19T

    Bit of work: K24

    Some work: Pretty much anything, Garrett Gt3071 etc

    340, with a 15? hmmmm

    Ok, to keep that sort of power reliable your going to have to change the rods, if your doing that, you might as well give the whole engine a freshen up with new seal bearings and gaskets. It starts getting pricey, I've done a similar built on mine, its cost around £2000. Thats before I have got the turbo

    i thought that but the car came with paperwork and printout 305 atw 340 at fly

    itg air filter
    remapped ecu
    miltek system

    think the boost was stupid turned up because it broke the cam, cracked the head, cracked the turbo and exhaust manifold and completely ££££ed the bottom end

    I would like more info on this 340bhp, can we see the dyno print out please? I cant see how a 15g can possibly produce that sort of power, what boost was it running?

    340 at the fly, I don't think even a 19 will give you that. Thats Garrett territory.

    Even my new engine will 'only' be around the 400bhp mark

    If there is one thing I have learnt in the Volvo world is nothing is impossible... however I too struggle to see this claimed output. I have seen 300bhp at the crank with a 15G but not alot more.
    Arguing is pointless....she may not be right but she's never wrong

    Tell her a remap is just having your satnav updated.....
