The interview went OK thanks. They had 62 applicants, of which they only interviewed 5, so thats a start.
Someone came from London, and various others from other places. I would imagine they save a wider WAN skill set than mine sadly, so I'm not very hopeful.
But then again, who knows.

Marks going, and I was thinking about it
I am soooooo looking forward to getting boost back in my life!
I miss everything about my car,
The feeling of accelleration
The noise (baaaAAAAAAAAA ba ba, pop, pssshhht, baaaAAAAAAAAAA psssht)
Even the stupid squeak from my armrest

welly, you can camp, drive to the baby thing and then drive back. so your 1 of 5? Thats better odd thats the inital 1 out of 62. Good luck. when should you hear back?
Paul, that sounds like a great place to go. One to look in to for sure.
Any pictures you care to share?
Dane, what happened to your car mate? Broke it all ready?
I just past my politics and ethics induction training course thingy. The most dull and boring thing I have ever done in my life.
so we had to change the turbo, but were changing it to a different hybrid and Bill didnt want to remove the turbo without removing the head again so he found me a big port head which has new bits (stem seals and exhaust guides...).
All of which is now on the car were just waiting on a different front mount intercooler to show up.
Yeah It was a long way off before, the Maf gave airflow readings equal to around 280-285, but it now it has a big port head because you can advance timing by roughly 10 more degrees, which will hopefully lead to Welly esque levels of hybridness.
End figures I'm not too fussed about because hopefully this time that'll be most of the work finished and hopefully it'll feel awesome on the road. As a benchmark Wellys made 338 (I think) from 22 psi so with any luck that should be achievable.
I think the only difference between Welly's set up and mine now are his mahhosive 76mm intercooler pipes, his is a non wideband car and mine is and mine has done 50K less.
You're right on the setups though, except for the mileage - the car may have done 50K more, but the engine hasn't.
Welly you get my PM mate? Can't find W7 USB drivers for the Galaxy S anywhere and the ones i download using the SDK doesn't seem to do anything
Currently driving a 55 plate Ford Mondeo ST. But as Arnie once said...
I'll be back!!!
Cheers bruv, good point on the engine I forgot about that.
It feels like it's been going on for ages.
Welly do you know much about 1.8T's in mk2 golfs
Do you have Samung Kies installed? I sort of assumed that you did....
The reason I ask is that Kies will give you ALL the drivers you need. Following on from that, Kies is normally responsible for phone firmware updates, and if you haven't checked for new firmware there first, you might just be able to download it and Kies will flash the phone for you...
Cheers dude, I was just wondering if you did
Yeah it's going to be a big learning curve for me, and whilst I hope i'll be able to get some suspension/brake/chassis skills I think the engine might be too far our of my league, I happy to give it a go but then again I'd rather it worked properly.
