    i blame Miggz for the Signature The k04 manages alright, considering i don't have any water lines running to the turbo, but i am definitely going to put WMI which should help out a lot. Will be getting Rods WMI and a retune with Unitronic quite soon

    Dude after WMI, rods and re tune your car will definitely be reaching over 200 wkw? madness!!

    Just some updates i forgot to mention. I was having a few issues with the car in terms of idling and over fueling, the following was done:

    3bar FPR (put back)
    Replaced wide and narrow band Lambda's
    Replaced MAF sensor
    Cleaned TB

    The new MAF


    Pic of the 4 wire lambda.


    Random shot :D


    Then for some odd reason the car would not boost, replaced a few things only to realize it was the turbo actuator.

    One from previous k04 where i snapped the shaft.



    The old K04 (that will be used soon with some custom wheels)




    Finally it seemed like my Oil filter housing was leaking due to someone stripping the thread.

    Old



    New Fitted with new oil cooler and oil cooler pipes, Antifreeze oil filter and oil.





    Then today on the way to the office, i broke an inner cv


    While getting fixed i decided to change dogbone mounting with a powerflex one.




    Then some



    Car is still not where is should be, but it is getting there, once again thanks for looking and enjoy

    It's a meth mix, for the fuel... Boost's octane levels and helps with timing pull end engine knock (so i'm told)

    And thanks bud it's getting there slowly and expensively.

    Quick update:

    Went over to Miggz to change the Dogbone mount.



    The new mounting:


    Old mounting on the car:


    Old vs New:


    New mounting on the car:


    Old mounting was in really bad shape, new one makes the car and power delivery so much better. Have to get used to the Vibrations though. Thanks a lot to Miggz for all the help
