Turbo upgrade?

Post by JagOz » Thu Nov 29, 2018 5:46 am

Wondering if there is an option to install a larger turbo to the tdi? I'm looking at a remap, and figured the turbo first.

Major part of a remap is increasing the turbo pressure on existing turbo. They normally run at a much reduced pressure to ensure longevity Increasing this pressure and remapping when the turbo kicks in gives you your increased power. Downside is of course potential reduced lifetime

the jaguar fitted turbo can be a bit fragile and some owners have had failures

I would not want to remap to get extra boost from it

Speak to these people
www.celtictuning.com.au

They are a UK based tuning company with a very good reputation. They will not tune outside the manufacturers recommended tolerances
