To get 300 bhp out of it you don't need anything other than a Walbro (for peace of mind) and possibly a backbox.

No need for a 3-port boost solenoid.

I got told that no need to uprate the fuel pump unless your wanting over 350, otherwise the standard is perfectly fine.

I don't think there is particularly anything wrong with it, I just want to make it a bit quicker.

One would fit under (cavalier King Charles), would need to lift it a lot for the other one (Bernese Mountain Dog)

Mainly it's just for the rutted tracks that lead (boom boom) to the best walks though

You can also get this open source mapped to save a few quid, sadly JGM doesn't do open source but Duncan (racedynamix) does

Indeed, but from what I have previously read it seems beneficial to have the ECUtek, which is what adds to the cost.

What are the drawbacks of opensource mapping?

The ecutek license costs the money, not sure if there is any significant drawbacks / difference in open source mapping..

^ can't think of any drawbacks either - quality of the mapper is what counts and Duncan has a great reputation.

Even if you didn't I would still wang it on the rollers. You learn so much more about the car that way. I do every car I own, shortly after purchase. Wish I could do it BEFORE purchase actually.

It's impossible to ignore advice that includes the word "wang". FACT.

Not sure I would learn a great deal, as it all looked Greek to me when watching Alan's car get the treatment. I would need a responsible adult with me to explain!

I am scouting about for a backbox, the Prodrive ones are as rare as quality Newsnight editorial decisions and apparently adapting a Newage Impreza one to fit is a bit of a 'mare.

Current thinking is Hayward & Scott.

Once I've got that I will stick it on, have a healthcheck done and then get to the rollers for a mapping session. MOT is due in early Jan, so I might get it all done in one fell swoop... test in the morning, power in the afternoon.

i recommend the prodrive one, as you say if you can find one at a sensible price! which is proving quite difficult now. Hayward and Scott was my choice if i couldnt get a deal on a prodrive one.

I had ecutek map on mine, its the first map thats the money as your forking out for the license in the first instance, after that its just the mappers time you pay for.

I believe now with ecutek on the facelifted SG's you can get 2 maps so you can run a race map for arsing around and a road map for economy running about.

And as for the roller theres nothing quite like watching your pride and joy being thrashed!!!!
