Do you mean overhaul of base parts or £5k budget for tuning?

If £5k is split between tuning and overhaul, you'll need to tell us what you have done already tuning wise. (or are you saying it's only ECU and JT?)

Speedparts Front strut brace: £130
SAS rear ARB , or Abbott rear piggy back: £170
Front arm rear butterfly bushes (powerflex purple): £70
Front ARB poly bushes £15
Engine torque arm bushes poweflex yellow - £44
Gearbox mounting bush - powerflex yellow - £30

Engine: Upgrade to Maptun Stage5 - 340bhp / 375ftlbs
Rebuild your 15T to 18T. £400
Green giant injectors - £150 (US import)
ITG airfilter: £45
Forge Dump valve: £90
Forge wastegate actuator: £100
3 Bar map sensor: £50
Uprated clutch (Sachs or Spec 2) - £500odd

That lot is about £4400 and inlcudes ZIP for labour...

Bigger wheels to accomodate much bigger brakes.
Budget well blown by then on parts alone.
