  • Next performance mod ?

    I am ready for my next performance mod for my ds3 thp..

    so far I 've done:
    Airtec front mount intercooler+ aluminium boost pipes
    Forge rec valve (I have to change the spring now I think)
    full exhaust upgrage (including 2,5 inch decat downpipe)
    Stage 2 remap
    Johh cooper works manifold
    itg panel filter

    with these mods my oem clutch is almost gone although I only have 20,500kilometers done in my car

    I am going for a blackdiamond performance clutch and I also want a little more torque / mid range power...something that will give me 8-10bhp will be fine as my engine internals are all stock and I don't want to risk damaging any pistons/rings/crank etc.

    I know I can go for a Peugeot 208gti turbo but this will give me a lot more power at high rpm something that I don't need...

    I am thinking for an induction kit...aquamist.....watermethanol,,or a little bit bigger turbo from a 207gti / cooper s ? any suggestions ?

    Mini JCW turbo is good for 270BHP according to Jamie. Or an RCZ-R turbo, though that's pretty expensive.

    Pretty sure he said the 208GTI turbo will bolt straight on but the others will need some extra work.

      yes I know these turbos will give more power but I don't want to go over 230-235bhp as I will risk damaging my engine internals

        Maybe the next step is uprating the internals then?

            my car is around 212-215bhp the only issue I had was with the clutch being worn out other than that everything is ok so far

                      I thought that year was the 150 THP - no matter, it probably had 155/6 anyway

                        THP150 did in fact have 156PS.

                          Do they ? That made my day, just gained 6hp without doing anything to the car. Didn't even have to look at it.
