    The backdraft kit looks good imo. And its a big bonus that you can use the original filter box, to save the maf

    Yep I have reverted to standard air box now, The Jabba kit looks better (will post pictures tomorrow) due to more stelthy look, you can fit standard engine cover etc if you want.
    BTW the great LOOKING fitment was by VagTech in Milton keynes

    this is an interesting question as if its mainly due to the software then you could simply buy the kit from bd as it is a resonable price then have it custom mapped else such as custom code as im sure they would make a good job of it

    I have just ordered the gt28rs-kit, and with the 550cc injectors. I'm gonna get it mapped at a lokal tuner, with alot of experience with the 1.8t and 2.2t. So the backdraft kit itself is just a standard garrett turbo with oil and water lines, the exhaust, gaskets and pipes. So the problems HAS to be related to the ecu

    iv been looking at the gt28rs route myself and many have acheived 330 Bhp ish from this turbo. i think it flows 350 bhp? but the people who put this kit on hav had to hold the boost back to save pistons and rods?
