poking badgers with spoons
i put forged rod in mine as a safety thing and i was rebuilding the engine so i thought it would be rude on to lol
its not known what the max out of my turbo is but im going to find out in the new year, now iv got my WMI installed i might even make 285bhp, i was told the turbo could flow more so that's a good thing.
with the hybrid like mine you don't need to change the manifold of oil and water lines or DP if you already have an after market one where as with prawns you do, but it depends what power you want and i suppose both of our a3's will feel completely different with the way the car makes the power, all turbos spool different and all that.
i cant say exactly how much it cost me but heres a picture of id say two thirds of the receipts i have and the rest are email invoices lol
id guess about 3k maybe 4k. it all soon adds up but on top of that i did have to buy a full new set of valves and a piston.
its all good fun ill be looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
you could get dan (beachbuggy) to make you a k03 hybrid that he made for an other member on here that made around about 250bhp i think, if you didn't want so much power
