Hello Simon, you will need sti injectors/sti top mount inter cooler and under tray/vf35 turbo/ 2.5 or 3" de cat exhaust/ decent panel filter or induction kit/ 3 port boost solenoid if yours doesn't already have 1 (don't think it does but could be wrong) and a remap to get you close to those figures then your gearbox will be at its upper limit, some up rated brakes to stop you might be an idea but not a necesity, should be looking at around about £1000 ish mate

Welcome. Another black blobeye. I have those things apart from a td05 instead of the vf. And sorry to highjack but should a 3 port solenoid have 3 pipes coming off it? Im going for a dyno run on friday so see what mine has then.

Hello mate welcome to the forum and the slippery slope Wink

In addition to what Maca listed I think you may also need to look out for an uprated fuel pump, pretty certain I was advised and had one fitted. My Blob was running about 330bhp with a similar spec to the list, I was running a VF30. And getting your headers ported will help.

As for where to look, obviously stick a WANTED post up on here and you could also check out NESOC if you are on Facebook. Mostly local members which helps when buying something as you meet the seller in person, rather than an ebay / Scoobynet trade - nowt wrong with those places per se, but weigh up your options/risks.

Also several good options on here in the Your Business section of people you can take the car to for mods / maintenance if you are not able to do it yourself or just general advice as most of us have been where you are now  Wink

yes sorry you will need a better fuel pump, not sure what the std one is like but to be on the safe side look for a Walbro or a HRC pump, make sure it's not a copy, I would buy a brand new HRC, they are only £80/£90 iirc

Remember to inform your insurance too.

Also think about the suspension and brakes, they may need some love too.
