Looking to ECUTEK remap the '05 2.5XT at Tractive Solutions. Roughly what BHP/Torque output would I be looking at? How much would the standard OE back box restrict BHP over a H&S back box, worth the extra £300? I quite like the understated noise of OE how much louder is the H&S?

Cheers

You can't go wrong with Tracktive, had mine done by them and love it :)
Not sure about the 2.5 XT but I guess between 270-290 bhp depending on modifications.
Best to replace the 2nd cat with a straight through pipe rather than just the backbox.

280 is the accepted max for the 2.5 with exhaust and intake mods (along the lines of the PPP), without you are probably looking at about 250-260.

For info, my 2006 2.5XT has a full milltek (catted), K&N filter, and was mapped to 272bhp and 1.25 bar of boost. I asked for a "safe" map.

Torque is 320 lb/ft.

Torque is great mid range but tails off a bit after 5000 rpm (max power is at 5100 rpm and stays constant to 6000 rpm).
