Hello everyone, I am a new member to this forum and would like to share my thoughts for my summer project. I am currently runing a s60 d5 163hp with a remap (approx. 193hp atm.) Amoung other things it has a computer, a few monitors etc... <p>What i want to do to my car is uprate the turbo, (pref. gt2260v of a bmw x5, or somrthing similar), install uprated injectors, add a fmic, full exhaust system and a custom mapping to make everything run smoother and will change the clutch to a better one when i burn it out with the modifications mentioned. <p>In addition i will change the air filter/flow (thinking about adding a second input). That is really my first stage in the process.<p>after that is setup, i will change my suspension, brakes, struts and bushes. i.e. handling options but that after the adding hp bit. <p>3rd step is really i.c.e. things and interior looks, e.g. PC, Audio, Blue dash and dails, etc... but this all happens when i bored as oppose to satge 3, if that makes sense. <p><br>I have done up cars before (visual and remap tbh) but not really ever looked at engine work, uprated injectors and turbos, etc...<br>Now the intro done, the actual questions:<p>What should i be looking for in respect to upgraded injectors, i have seen many on performance websites with different cc. sizes but i have no idea how that relates to me. please help. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Is a fmic or a water injection system more worth my while? i have seen fmic installs on s40 and s60R but not an actual s60, has anyone done this before? any write up??? <p>the turbo has a T25 flange if anybody is wondering. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Oh and the key bit is that i plan to use this car everyday!!!<p>I am looking into puting my plans into action in a few moths, jus want to make sure that i dont mess anything up to severly or overlook something important. <br>Also, will the engine internal be able to cope with this sort of modification? without me have to change pistons, cams, rods, etc... <p>I am a newb to this and have little experience behind me as i am only 21. but i am very enthusiastic about this project and any help is much appriecated. Thanks in advance.
