    Hi guys I am interested in upgrading my tdo4 to a tdo5 16g. My engine is the 4efte all stock internals. Going to get a management system soon but I want to know what supporting mods would be needed and if this pairing (a 1.3L engine with a tdo5 16g) is even feasible. I'm looking to make anywhere from 250 to 300bhp.

    Any and all feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

    Anything over 240bhp on stock internals and over 14psi of boost is asking for trouble. The engine wont last long.

    You will need full stand alone ECU and a competent tuner. That turbo will be way laggy on stock ECU and break your engine.
    You want a good flowing exhaust manifold.
    Its all about keeping the EGTs low so that you do not get knock and break ringlands.
    Bigger injectors and a better fuel pump.
    You will get your goal of 250hp if your engine is in good condition and you use good oil. Big piston to bore clearance also contributes to broken ring lands.
    I would also prefer to increase the oil pressure. Keep rev cut at 7500rpm for the sake of the conrods.
