Feels like I haven't been on these boards in months, happy new year people smile

Some of you may know my bro has a 306 1.9td. He's looking for a little more power and I heard that by tuning the wastegate valve on the turbo to 1.5bar, and fitting a full exhaust system and an induction kit can give close to 130bhp. Can anyone tell me how safe this is? Is the engine likely to last only another 10k miles?

Cheers for any help happy

The car should run 15psi happily on the std fueling, ive heard of some running 19psi with the fueling adjusted, but I doubt the tiny TD turbo could cope with 1.5 bar eek (22.5psi)

Dead easy to adjust though (once you can get to the actuator which is between the engine and bulkhead on the 306's).

If it has and adjustable actuator - lengthen it, or he could fit a bleed valve. Make sure he has a boost gauge fitted though, to check his boost pressure smile

Nice one Stu, so you think it'd be okay at 19psi? He was gonna adjust the fueling to match anyway. I'll make sure he gets a boost gauge to make sure he's not running too much. Thanks again for the help mate wink

If he get the fueling set up, 19psi should be ok engine wise, though Im not sure how long the turbo will last think

15psi should be safe with just a boost adjustment smile
