I have done some research and I was wondering what is your opinion about 2.5 tdi v6.

Because it has 180 bhp I am thinking it has more potential for remap/bigger turbo(s).

Only one thing bothers me; i have found on another forum the following:

"Big limiting factor on this engine is the Fuel Injection Pump, its rated to 210bhp, so you will see tuners specifying 208bhp usually"

Can the Fuel Injection Pump be uprated, so i can go to 300 bhp?

I am not aware of fuel pumps being uprated. The normal method of increasing fuel flow is to fit a larger capacity pump.

Your existing fuel pipes should be able to cope with a small increase in flow. However, you are looking to increase power by over 60% so you may need to replace them with a larger diameter. There are web sites that can calculate this for you.

I did not buy the car yet.
I am at the research stage.
I still have 2 months for research, as I plan to buy at the end of July.
Yes, I am looking for over 60% increase. I am hoping for 300 bhp.

I like the sound of this engine.

Although I am decided almost 100% for this engine, I am interested in your opinion.

Cheers.
