Has anyone done it?

Or should I just get a remap done?>

Contemplating it, but trying to work out costs etc.

Cheers

To be honest it would be a bit of a ball ache! Not impossible though you would need engine, rad, driveshafts maybe sub frame?? ecu, clocks, turbo, pump.... so may bits you would need! I will stick with what you have got and get some more power out of it. Or maybe stick a golf 1.9tdi in it. Steiner on here has done a fair few

a good remap from jabba on the later 1.9 should see you at 150bhp and bags of torque, a lot cheaper than an engine swap!

you could probably then go a lot further with a bigger turbo, injectors etc. Obviously you would then need to look at clutch, flywheel, transmission and driveshafts.
250 bhp shouldnt be too far away!
