Tdi or petrol? On mobile so can't tell.

If petrol what have you done to get it to 115.

Also if 35bhp cost £15 don't you think everyone would have done it?

Oh dear

The guy in the shop is telling you the power output of your car? The same guy you are buying these things from?

I cannot imagine how awful a straight through exhaust sounds but it is probably losing you power in the mid range. If those mods were decent ones specifically designed for the car you would be looking at less than 10 bhp increase.

You are are better off burning £10 notes than tuning little petrol engines

Your not even hitting 85bhp. Go on a rolling road.

No way in hell you are running that a sport with cams is about 120bhpish usually. If that.

Nah the car sounds quite deep but then when get up to about 3 thousand revs gets really raspy...sounds quite nice :) and I haven't bought the parts from the random guy who was telling me all the bullshit about my car I went to a local performance shop and got it done all custom.. what do you think about the remap then would it be worth it or not? if so how much bhp would I get of in increase just an estimate or something?

Maybe 5bhp if your lucky.

Honestly mate your car isn't making that power custom or not unless you have done serious engine work done.

I run R114-4 Calipers from HiSpec and Ferrodo DS2500. The calipers are for racing only really however they do an equivalent road setup. Best price I could find was from: http://bigbrakes4u.co.uk/
