    speak to APS mate, stay clear of backdraft, in all honesty i dont think many people no what they are doing with the s3 above 400bhp. Maybe only jbs but even they are suspect!

    The N75 will limit you to 1.3bar at the top end no matter what the requested boost is. Been there, tried it, and moved on to an MBC to get what I needed.

    I think Simch sums it all up perfectly. Can't really add anything, other than if I were to do it all again, I'd stick to a hybrid K04 or go all out for 400bhp+ and change the gearbox and everything else. The typical 330bhp options are a bit of a dissapointment once you're used to it.

    I see that 350BHP(ish) is the max safe limit on standard internals, but was wondering whats the max BHP limit for a useable everyday car thats as lag free as possible.
    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Finally back on the road, have a HUGE list of mods and things to do now!

    i agree with you on that, i havent heard much good feedback about backdraft, mostly complaints, they dont seem to have many happy customers,

    Worth speaking to Jabba too, theyve done quite a few 1.8T's with over 400bhp.

    Wink backdraft turbo

    iv got hold of a backdraft turbo kit.. 350+bhp

    it was fitted to a tt 225..

    its a gt2860rs -5001s ball bearing turbo 0.86 AR

    a complete kit including 550cc injectors..

    as im a machanic but work on heavy goods vehicles i want to fit it myself & want to know whats involved!!

    is it more or less straight forward or requires alot of mods for clearances??

    all your help would be great..

    Speak to backdraft direct. I wouldn't expect any major mods. It's a kit after all. They would have designed it to hopefully have a quick turnaround.

    As far as big power goes, its always great to have as much as you can, but you do want it useable

    Im running 350bhp an its plenty for road use and loosing your licence quickly, doesnt let you down on the track and I use it everyday for work/moving houses/trip tips etc and its 100% useable
