Just a quick post to say hi. Got my R53 back in August but only just stumbled onto this forum. Look forward to going through some posts and picking up tips along the way.

The car came with a S/S exhaust system on it, think its a powerflow or something. I've added a Ramair CAI and 17% pulley. Also, waiting on some JCW injectors arriving to get them plugged in. Next step IC, followed by possibly manifold and cam. Retune to get them all working together. Purchasing all the bits slowly as funds are always tight.

They way you've written that last post makes it look like you're going to fit the JCW injectors without a tune? If indeed that is what you mean, don't. The fuel scaling will be wrong and it will over fuel all the time.
Get yourself an IC, Airtec or similar and fit that. A pulley does not need a map as the car will adjust itself, however it may struggle to deliver enough fuel higher up the rev band with the standard injectors.
380cc JCW injectors are fine if you want to get the best out of that setup, however they won't deliver enough for most cams - perhaps a mild cam such as the Newman PH2 will be ok, but the likes of a PH3/4 or a Cat Cam 469 would be out of the question.

IC, pulley and spend the other money on suspension, breaking and chassis upgrades would be my advice. Then when all that is done, add an exhaust manifold, 550cc injectors and an aggressive cam and see yourself in the region of 240-250bhp in a car that stops and corners as well as it goes!

I've picked up the 380cc pretty cheap so thought that would be a better option than the standard injectors. As I said I wont be doing the manifold, cam etc until a later date, so to be on the safe side I purchased the injectors. Didn't want the car running too lean. I will be installing either the Airtec or GRS Motorsport TMIC next and will be getting it retuned. However, I know the car will run fine with the JCW injectors until I get it retuned.

If I do go down the route of cam and manifold I will be looking to get the 550cc but that won't be for a while, so the 380cc will do what I need them to do for now.
