..... is it true on the MKV '32 you can increase power to 270bhp with a remap and a cat-back Milltek ?????

if so -

Any ideas on how much £££££'s that'd set you back ?? :unknw:

And is it worth it ?! :aggressive:



Thanks in advance guys ..

You should get at least 260 with those upgrades. "10bhp is nothing!" you're thinking? If so, nor is 20bhp really...

The thing about giving the R32 power upgrades, is not horsepower (unless you're going forced induction) but power delivery, which the remap will certainly add, while not showing much on paper.

As the post above states its more about the power delivery. I was trying to explain this to a guy at work yesterday, he just didn't get it and was all about the BHP.
