    Why even bother getting a new one?!

    Getting a hybrid replacement will cost less and will give your more driveability ;-)

    yeah, I know, but then I will want bigger injectors and bigger fuel pump and bigger MAF and... I don't want to spend that much .
    I contacted Turbo Technics to see what are the options. They told me 390GBP for a full refurb, if they're able to source a hot side. My exhaust housing is cracked very close to the turbine and also on the usual spots. And there's no spares...

    Naaah, no absolute need for all these complementary mods. A respectable tuner will do a remap based on your actual setup.

    Would give you some more headroom in the near future.

    Been there, have a 04 Titanium Grey V70R myself
