Performance 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:My name is Kostas,
I was wondering whether you could give me some advice on Performance Parts. I own a
4x4 1.8t Octavia and am looking to increase the power to around 200hp. I
have been looking at the revotechnik website where they tune the car by altering
the ecu settings. They claim an increase of up to 210hp. I would like to
ask whether such a power hike would require an intercooler or any other sort
of engine mods.What is your advice on a good Performance Parts solution, taking into
account money and engine longevity?
