A few tuning questions etc.
Following my thread in the introductions area I thought I'd post a thread in here.
Okay I'm considering getting a 147 or GT JTDm 16v and doing a few mods.
Remap - where is best? Celtic tuning seem to promise the highest gains.
Exhaust - is it thought to be worth fitting a complete exhaust (from the turbo back, removing the cat in the process). Are some companies better than others - Powerflow vs/ Longlife etc?
Air filter - is a panel filter thought to be the best bet? I have a massive cone filter on my Rover which means the turbo sound sounds great, but I'm not convinced that it does a massive amount for performance.
Turbo upgrades - is there anything bolt-on available?
Drivetrain - firstly the clutch - from reading around the forum it seems like I will need an uprated clutch following a remap - one of CG motorsport's fast road ones seems to be popular?
Flywheel - is the standard DMF up to a remap when renewed? It seems that it would be better to replace it with a single-mass replacement, but some on here seem to think that doing that is risky?
Diff - is the diff at risk of blowing up after a remap? I am aware that some fit the Q2 one, but I believe that that is because it is a LSD?
Driveshafts - I've heard that they can be a bit fragile? Is it just that the CV joints wear and knock or something more serious?
I would be aiming for 200 maybe 220 hp.
