Re: things that need changing when turbo i uprated
I looked on ePer but I am not sure about your map sensor... according to eper it should be 2.5Bar one....if you can take a picture of it.... But bassicly if it has a 3 pin connector it is 2.5bar one...and if it has 4pin it is 3Bar....the additional pin is for the temp. reading.
About the turbo....if you manage a way to use your existing exhaust manifold you have to make some king of flange that can connect to your bigger turbo.
Problem with that is that the turbo will move too much and too close to the radiator fan.
in most casses you will also need to "re-locate" the oil re-entry into the engine block...as you can NOT have it above the point where it exists from the turbo!!!
Also you have to rework your whole exhaust system from the turbo to the back of your car :-)
You will also need a new intake pipe to your turbo...meaning from your Air-Filter to your turbo inlet. Best is to get a new air-filter system...BMC_CDA or something else....BUT in order to do properly you have to get rid of the SMIC...so you have to go for the FMIC anyway.
And finaly after all is fitted an working, you have to get a proper remap done for your setup.
