Hi All,

Just wondering if there are any 140 or 180 T5.1s out there pushing 270+??

My current 174 T5 is running perfect at around 280bhp with the Bobby Singh treatment, GTB turbo internals, wagner evo 2 intercooler, PPtuning side exhaust decat. However the Norwegian tax authorities won't let me keep it without paying £8000 in tax and converting it back to stock temporarily to get it through the import tests. So I'm thinking about buying a 2010 van out here, but only if I can get back to the same kind of power!

Cheers

Dave

You won't get the same from a 180. The 180 has limits on what is safe with the turbo with the way the waste gates work. Bobby has napped a 180 to around 245 but it's the torque that won't be the same. The 140 on the other hand would need work to the turbo, fuel delivery system and injectors but again won't have the same torque figures. Best person to ask would be Bobby.as a 2 litre 4 pot he had dealings with topped 390bhp but not sure on reliability.
