    I would not recommend fiddling with the adjustment on the wastegate actuator. It’s not like on old vehicles where you can wind up the boost by altering the wastegate rod.

    Your best bet would be a remap, try Dynachip he comes to you and charges less than most.

    Mine smoked on the full fat remap, in fact l originally wasted £460 on an Alive remap that just produced more white smoke than as SAS smoke grenade.
    The Alive guy never returned my calls and l never got any money back. I wouldn’t recommend the Alive guy in Manchester

    The Dynachip guy charged £250 which included calling out to my house, he had to turn down the remap a couple of times to stop my 110 from smoking (on full throttle at low RPM)
    But my 110 is still transformed, it will pull 70mph in fifth going over the M62 where before it was at 50-55mph

    I have a 54 plate TD5 so MOT wise while still being honest means CAT stays, does anyone know if the exhaust note is any better if I just remove centre silencer?
