    Hi there.....your car is coming along really nicely,and should be real fun for your customer....I know mine certainly is!
    I'd be interested to know how he finds the Spec Mini Twin when it's running,and it looks like you also used the ATP kit,which we used.

    Yeah that's right. The kit required quite a bit of modifying for the quattro system. We will be sure to keep you informed on how everything performs.

    Exactly what we found......I did a LOT of groundwork prior to buying it,but despite that,we found the downpipe and turbo inlet piping required significant modification.
    Having said that though,the manifold and associated parts went in without trouble,and the wastegate fitting is better than many of the kits,plus most importantly,it has been totally reliable over many thousands of miles.
    My own feeling would still be that for someone who wants a BT kit right now,that this is the one to go for,and it looks as if you guys feel the same.
