    Exciting times ahead.....

    Got the S3 back on the road today after it being sorned on the drive for the last 6 months while I've been driving round in my hairdressers car..... Nice to get a bit of forced induction back in my life.... New B12 kit, new brakes all round.... Feelin the love again...Unfortunately the wife has decided that she wants an extension so my hairdressing days are sadly going to come to an end....lol The Porker has to go....It would always be the case when they come head to head.... I have a 3 week trip to do offshore on Friday and then when I get back the S3,s going down to LVS Racing to get Pats 2.0 litre stroker fitted into it.... So after parking it up 6 months ago sick of all the money it was costing me... She has bounced back with a vengeance..... So as in the title exciting times are ahead..... Can't f@@kin wait..... Whoop whoop....

    Exciting times ahead.....

    If you're saving for an extension and want to keep the wife happy you'd be better off selling both cars and getting an ultra reliable Kia with 7 years warranty

    On the other hand, that engine will be ace. Fk the mrs and the extension

    Westy she who had to be obeyed wants an extension so an extension she will have.... Everybody knows that if her indoors is kept happy then it makes our lives a lot easier... She resits her test next Tuesday... Hope she passes this time because when my car disappears for a week to get the head gasket done.. Hopefully she will be on the road... Bought her a little Punto for Christmas going to get insured on it myself just to run about in...

    The build has already been done fella.... It just needs a few tweeks and a few more mods for it to realise the potential it has got.... It's running at about 340 at the moment on 1.3.... Andy says it needs another fuel pump to be able to turn up the boost... I'm not that mechanically minded... I just wanna jump in it and writhe the ass of it.....lol

    Looks like a good spec engine this, shame Pat never finished it really, I think he only got it to 340bhp ever, which give the spec is pretty poor. Hopefully it was nothing serious holding it back and you realise it's full potential

    Given the spec it shouldn't really need cams or a manifold to break 400, plenty of standard engines with only rods are cracking over 400 on the same turbo, such an all out stroker should be easily above 400 on stock cams / inlet I'd have thought.

    Looking forward to seeing how it turns out for you mate

    I feel your pain, this ******* 8hrs has dragged for me and still 2hrs left lol.

    Be good to see the car when your back and as nick says it will prob go into the 400s but even if it doesn't it should be a really good allround performer with the stoker kit.
