    "I own a Renault"

    "I own a Ford"

    "I own an Audi"

    What would you rather say?

    When it's 300bhp it's not going to matter, it's going to be the nicest and the most atomic!

    Try telling that to the ladies

    As the Top Gear lot say, if Christen Scott-Thomas saw you pull up in a Renault or Ford to pick her up for a date, she'd laugh at you... Regardless of it's power or lightness. Audis on the other hand, have prestige and she'd definitely climb in

    What about if they're scuffed all down the right hand side from the door down to the end of the rear arches, missing half a skirt.

    Something tells me she'd take the ford lol x

    I was in a very similar position last year!

    Someone crashed into my motor just as I was about to get around a grands worth of parts added....so everything had to be put on hold for a month or two. Luckily for you there's a third party involved so there's chance you could get the vehicle repaired from their insurance I got hit by a scum bag who just drove of and didn't leave any details

    Hope you get it all sorted

    Thanks mate, I actually spent 1,200 on parts and was going to get the FMIC and remap next month. Hopefully the car gets sorted through the third party and everything goes ahead as planned.

    Which is the boost guage that people use in place of the blower on the right hand side of the steering wheel.

    Looking to get one.

    I was looking for a fitting guide In the stickies but I couldn't find one.

    people use whatever gauge they desire my good man. any 52mm gauge can be made to fit in there.

    the custom bit is making up some sort of pod / plate to house it in!

    Did you decide on boost gauge or liquid mate? I couldn't do without my drivers side blower so I have a pillar mount , I just need to fit it properly and lose the duck tack tape and self tapping screw lol

    I'll probably get the liquid guage mate, as i think it looks ace in tufftys build thread.
    Haha, get it sorted man.. nobody wants duck tape in view!

    anything wrong with a kit like that? If i realised they were such a price drop from the Forge 'bolt on' I would already have one on the car and would be ringing R-tech for stage 2 :/

    '0-300' A3AH build thread

    After reading alot while waiting for certain parts to arrive and my obsession with the 300bhp benchmark.

    I'm starting to think my std k04 with 90k isn't going to get me there.

    My list of mods are:

    -Badger5 v2 80mm tip - heatshield - Jetex.
    - relentless v3 3" downpipe and decat
    - relentless v3 manifold
    - 600x300x76mm ASH intercooler + all piping from viper performance.
    - miltek cat back exhaust system.

    Going to order IE rifle drilled rods and Bosch 550 injectors from badger bill.

    On the hunt for an AEB/AEM/AGU large port head also.

    IF I decided to GT2871 (do I need GT2871r), what else would I need?

    Aaron.

    Wouldn't your new DP and manifold be useless now if you change your turbo to anything but a K04 Hybrid? Anything other than a K04 would be a complete change of direction on your build. Doesn't mean you shouldn't do it though!

    '0-300' A3AH build thread

    I'm not sure, that's why I'm asking.. Not overly concerned if it is. Just wanted to know what was needed and like you have, just wanted it pointing out if it can't be done with 'said' mods.

    As you say - not to say I shouldn't do it.

    Could always look at the new k04 or k04 hybrid like you said.
    Just wanted some opinions/gurus to guide me.

    Cheapest and esiest option for you with your current mods is either a hybrid ko4, orrrr, you could follow what sam bryant has done and fit a chinese 2871 to the ko4 stuff. This requires new flanges on the mani and downpope, and new lines. Sam got to 350hp.

    I like the sound of hybrid actually, anyone or company out there that would refurb and hybrid mine, of easier to source one from new?
