  3. Alvi its just a thought, I want more power so that I can make the car more fun to drive. Do you have any ideas or recommendations? If I don't reach the 230-240 hp mark within the next 6 months I will put it up for sale and get a 635d.
  4. What do you think of this electronic boost controller then? Video for installation And link of the website. http://www.gfb.com.au/stand-by-for-g-force-ii This device seems to be very popular in the vag tdi world and also seems to work with vg turbos. I have contacted the company that makes them asking them to confirm if we can fit it to the 2.2 d4d turbo but haven't heard back. This device also seems to help with the lag as the boost comes faster so if it works it would help a lot our laggy motors... We could even organise a group buy if people are interested. Cheers George
  5. I want to get more power from my motor a have been searching around what is the best way to go about it. I see that is very common in the vag forum the swap to a bigger turbo. E.g. In a 140 tdi motor to fit a 170 horse turbo. Based on that I'm looking at the 3.0 d4d hilux turbos but they seem to be producing less power than the 2.2 motor. They produce 170 bhp. So I guess we need to look at 4.5 v8 d4d turbos that produce 203 horses I think. For now this is only a thought, so haven't check fitment or anything else. Any thoughts or feedback would be highly appreciated. Cheers George
  6. Www.climair.de go to their webshop and select the American cars section. Very good quality visors, fitted without any short of dodgy 3m tape but it goes inside of the door frame.
  7. Www.speedbuster.de Www.tmcmotorsport.com Top quality boxes that control both fuel pressure and turbo boost.
  8. No I don't have any at the moment. If you are planning to do both dpf and back box my advice to you would be to do the dpf first. With the dpf off there is an increase in the exhaust sound but with both replaced it is pretty loud.
  9. Straight fit, just the back box. The rest parts of the exhaust system are completely different. Forgot to say, the 220d has no cat. The double barrels are empty.
  10. Straight fit, just the back box. The rest parts of the exhaust system are completely different.
  11. There Are more aftermarket exhaust options for the Is200 than for the 220d. I have now fitted an IS200 trd backbox and the engines runs better. I will record it when I'm back home and upload it on YouTube.
  12. I have a speed buster tuning box installed as well and this has messed up my mpg readings. I don't care much about mpg but I want power....
  13. I'm also looking to replace my shocks as after fitting lower springs and with the mileage at 128k miles they are well gone. Check the description in the link below. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/250889449060?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2648 I think these bilstein will fit as well http://www.ebay.com/itm/150952376953?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2648
  14. At last an interesting thread.... I will install the DPF emulator over Christmas, I waited until I pass the NCT here in Ireland. That was done last Saturday and the car passed with not a single issue. Another good mod is the sprint booster, I have one installed for almost a year and it helps alot with the turbo lag until the engine reaches the 1800-1900 rpm. For the people that don't want to do a dual exhaust conversion I have test fitted a backbox from the old 2 litre petrol IS200 and it fits the IS220d like a glove. I'm planning to buy one of e-bay or a scrapyard and remove its guts and then fit it on the car. I believe that a high flow exhaust system will help the turbo spool faster to some degree.
