it sounds impressive but as the engine was produced with 180, 210 and 225bhp specs its fairly easy to create a big gain if you have the 180bhp model as standard. all you do it change the ecu to the 225 setting. that the only difference between the models, and the more powerful versions came with two zorst pipes instead of the 1 that 180 spec has.

if you had done the same mods to the 225 spec then it would stuggle to take the power over 250bhp at a push.

Not really true me ole fruit.

The 180bhp remaps from anything from 210-240. Remember take dynos with a pinch of salt (dyno lottery, and it's also in the garages interest for them to over read). A straight remap for a 180 will take you to around 210bhp. You can sometimes get closer to the 240bhp mark, but you'll need a new induction kit and a high flow exhaust at the very very least.

The 225 and 210bhp models are both identical, but different to the 180. They have twin intercoolers and a bigger turbo. So will remap straight from 210/225 to around 250/260. Go stage 2 with intake, and exhaust and you could see close to 280bhp. Which is the limit of the turbo.
