Where did you attach the second turbo?

SEAT only made a Leon Cupra R with a single turbo (KKK K04 hybrid turbo) and standard would either be 210bhp or 225bhp, depending upon when you bought it.

ECU remap will indeed push power up to around 260-280bhp (dependent upon boost level) and this shouldn’t cause increased ‘breakdowns’, if it does then take it back to the place who modified it as the remap is dodgy.

The original coil packs installed under the bonnet were known to be prone to failure (as on most of the VAG range) and this was recognised and rectified by warranty replacement of all coils with a new type that doesn’t fail quite so often, if you haven’t had your old ones replaced, this could be the reason for your breakdowns.

Improving intercooling is indeed beneficial but standard equipment will not make the car breakdown.

If you have fitted a second turbo (you quote ‘biturbo’), I would be interested to know ‘where’ and ‘how’. I would also suggest that you would be getting better performance figures than you suggest if you are running a remapped ECU and biturbo.

The Leon Cupra R is a very nice vehicle and indeed quick. I personally own a modified Ibiza Cupra, pushing 215bhp and it is very rapid due to its power:weight ratio.
