    Yes, Badger 5 does the adaptors... I run one on mine...



    As Andrew suggests though, I am not sure what benefits you would get without going BT tbh...

    Surely that "conversion" loses all idle control?

    A proper cable throttle still has a motor inside which it uses to adjust the throttle flap to allow the car to adjust its idle speed for cold starts etc...

    Andrew could you fabricate a adaptor plate for a golf 4motion TB for s3 inlet manifold? Also hows the large port custom manifold coming on?

    Agu-turbo you have got a bargain indeed.

    The car is hopefully going on the dyno this weekend. I am still running the std TB atm but depending how the dynoing goes I may swap over to the R32 TB on the std mani for a direct comparison and if I get time etc I also plan to see if I can try it with the SEM inlet too... just depends on how busy Bill gets etc really..
