    finally got money together for new turbo
    allready got exhaust mani. things should progress quicker now, thats two of the most expensive bits out the way.
    very small chance of it all being ready to fit by end of feb, but realisticly, it'll be mid/end of march.
    would like to get new clutch and flywheel fitted before turbo goes on........ its a never ending list

    stil, should be a great car to drive

    manifold turned up tail end of last week, and car gets droped off to bills on sunday (2morro).
    cant wait to see how the thing drives. going to be a lil bit mental i think!

    along with new turbo and fmic, a bigger intake manifold and R32 throttle body will be going on to, along with a vems egt gauge.

    no problem mate, i'll post up on here as soon as its done. be a few weeks i think, its being done as and when, plus bills away for a few days.

    i dont think you'd be disapointed with it, the parts i've seen all look good, built to quite a high spec, bill knows his stuff, so the cars in good hands.

    I am a little, I have thought about doing similar but not sure I can justify the expense. I bought my S3 thinking I wouldn't have to do anything to it as it was pretty sorted already. How wrong was I!!!!

    I am keen to see how it all turns out, I like playing with cars and before having to do the family car thing I had Mk2 Escorts with 2ltr engines and twin carbs and built engines etc for them.

    If I was gonna do it I would build the engine myself and fit it all in etc but get Bill to sort the mapping out obviously...

    Can't wait for Bill to finish his race car either... planning on being there for the first race at combe providing he can finish his car

    if you can fit stuff yourself, your save loads. though parts are still expensive. around 2k for turbo, manifold and d/pipe alone.

    see how you like mine, i'll put money on you getting yours done next!

    no major updates....

    added a defi boost gauge to the list, so can keep a eye on boost,egts and AFR.

    downpipes of the car, and new one is half made, looks neat and tidy so far, full 3"inch downpipe. that and the manifold goes off for ceramic coating then.

    more updates in a week or so, and i'll try get some pics

    i've managed to get a few pics.....
    only on camera phone, time to invest in a decent cam i think!


    start of downpipe with v-band


    and a view of mani from inside the drivers side wheel arch


    i'l get some better pics once d/pipe and mani are back from being coated, hopefully bill can mock them up a spare motor.

    right, as promised, lots more better quality pics :D
    d/pipes made, and ready to be sent for ceramic coating, looks fantastic mocked up on a spare motor. A lot of time and hard work has gone into this, downpipe is a full 3", no shrinking down to fit, nice sweeping curves should make for good flow

    a good 380 bhp. though with the bigger intake mani/tb. it could be more.
    i'd put my money on between 380-400bhp
