156 V6 Exhaust Upgrade

Hey guy's,

I'm looking to take my 156 V6 upto the 200BHP marker, and was hoping that an Induction Kit and Exhaust would sort that out.

However, now looking at various other posts regarding Induction Kit's / Filter Kit's etc I'ts probably safer keeping that stock.

Does anyone know of an exhaust system that can give me a gain of around 10BHP? I know a de-cat would better my chances but ideally I want to keep the car legal, lol.

Do you reckon my best bet is to take it to somewhere like Longlife and just saying 'Fit what gives me the most extra BHP', or are the PIPER / MONGOOSE Halfords style ones just as good gain wise?

Any help is appreciated.

Re: 156 V6 Exhaust Upgrade

a squadra remap [and the 45mm intake runners it comes with] will give u ur 20hp and take u into the 200 range.

not impossible to get 10 hp from intake and exhaust but u may not see it from the branded stuff. some ppl have dyno-ed complete supersprint systems and only got 2-3 hp more than stock.

Cheers for that Redd, it's probably my best bet then just to skip the exhaust and induction kit altogether and just jump straight to the remap.

How much does the remap and the runners all come to mate in the end, bearing in mind my mechanical know how is severely limited and all work will have to be carried out by people who arent myself, lol.

If you have a look on the Autodelta site by clicking on the link below, you will get an idea of the costs involved. I know it's not Squadra but should give you a starting point

Re: 156 V6 Exhaust Upgrade

you must remember everything works with everything else!
doing one thing eg the exhaust only and the intake will choke it, doing the intake only and the exhaust will choke it!
best way to go is do the exhaust and the intake then get it remapped!
