Default small turbo 290 bhp?

hi i have a small turbo escort cossie which i bought completely standard since then i have fitted the following items and was expecting about 290 bhp but i recently took it to a rr and only got 260 bhp and 296 lb ft is there anything else i need to add or should it be running around 290 bhp

intank uprated fuel pump
fuel regulator
chip
-31 actuater
full mongoose exhaust
k&n pannel filter

its running 1.25 bar dropping to 1.05 would it make a difference if it was holding 1.25

Mine made 270 BHP & 280lb ft with just a panel filter & Mongoose on PE's rolling road.I've taken those figure with a pinch of salt to be honest but they put it down to holding over a bar after the over boost.If it held 1.25 it would be nearer the 300BHP I would of thought.
But you'll prob need a new turbo soon after.

They should hold 1.3 bar mate, thats why your power is down.

What you need is a nice bolt on 350 conversion.

When I took mine to PE 4 years ago it made 257bhp and its standard! They couldnt believe it and took 4 readings, said it might have a hybrid turbo

I've heard that more from other ST Escort's...

I think that they deliver more power because they have a overboost for a couple of seconds.

As Cossie Lee said something is odd with the ST as mine isn't chipped either so shouldn't make anywhere near 270bhp.

They did mine 5 times, I was a nervous wreck

The setup of the rolling road seems to effect the results a hell of a lot as they could get figures for mine ranging from 280BHP to 250BHP.Mine was run by Chris who use to work @ PE doing the work.He's a knowlegable guy on RS's so u can imagine what an Optimistic RR operate could tell u !!!

Does seem strange, I took mine for a RR de-tune, took off a faulty chip, they said it was the first Cossie they ever de-tuned!
