by Richard Raynor Tip: ebay.co.uk is great place for bargain
spares and even complete engines / gearboxes Extreme auto
acessories also have some great value performance & styling
parts.Question: I've added a sports exhaust and Air filter what
should I do next to boost the power without spending too much money?
Answer: Fit a fuel pressure boost valve - about £100 for more top end
power and driveability with a faster throttle response or go for fast road
profile cams £200 + Fitting . Question: Im just wondering
if it is possible for me to fit a turbo and a superchip on my car (peugeot
306 gti-6). If it is possible what will be the cost and the approx result
on power. Thank you very much. Answer:I don't think a superchip & turbo
would work together - the ecu needs special setting up for the turbos air
intake rate - we have an approx bhp calculator in www.torquecars.co.uk tuning
section this will give you a rough idea.Check out also www.pug-performance.com Question: I
have a peugeot 406 2.0 turbo and want to uprate the turbo what
would be the best for my car? Also i am going to chip and put
high lift cams and a filter do i need to uprate the exhaust?
Does a dump valve make a difference. Answer: There are a number
of turbo conversions available it depends on what you want to
accomplish - a drivable street car or a pure track car that does
10mpg. Bigger exhausts are always better but will reduce the
torque. Dump valves regulate the blow off pressure and make a
really cool sound - get one there not deer and sound fantastic. Question:
Will I really see much difference in my performance of my 306
gti-6 if i fit one of these?have you got any other recommendations
exluding air filter. Answer: In short
there is not a big power gain but the driveability of the car
is improved - the throttle response is sharper and there is more
power at higher revs as the fuel air mix is richer. Question: Can you change the turbo on a hdi with a turbine
with variable geometry?
