    Cheers mate. Sounds better in the flesh, and you get a nice pop on the overrun. I think with a less restrictive downpipe it'd shoot flames

    No thanks. Couldn't hold my hand their for too long to take the vid!

    Thanks mate. Not in the short term, want to see how much use it gets but if we enjoy it and use it regularly as we plan then it'll get caged.

    Car might be on track at Brands tomorrow, although neither me or Ben would be driving it! TIP will go on when the Garrett goes on, so hopefully this weekend or next.

    Definitely. As long as it's not wet or the Leon doesn't stand a chance.

    Mate, my car was pretty lethal in the wet at Bedford but that was on slicks. I'm sure the Leon would be ok on some proper rain tyres.

    It's all about the tyres, but a Quattro with decent tyres in the rain is far more likely to work well then a 2wd car..

    I'd agree that the Quattro will be better out the bends but a stripped fwd on good wet tyres will stop quicker then a lardy S3 going into a bend.

    Stops unbelievably well for a car with 312's. It might not be too comfortable after a long track session but stops far better then any 312 car I've been in. Don't know what fluid it has in or what discs or pads it has.

    The braided lines and Ferodo pads still need to go on, and I'm sure their is some carplan brake fluid at the back of Ben's workshop!

    312s aren't all bad. Mine were mint last weekend and I didn't have any shakey moments like I did last year. I bled mine with motul RBF 660 the day before and it seemed to firm up the initial bite quite nicely. You just have to watch the braking points of caterams and other lighter cars to realise that lightweight is king.

    I think lightness is the key in track car form. Don't particularly need masses of power. You can get overtaken in the straights but through then bends a lighter car reasonably well set up is foig to cause others problems. Really can't wait to track this now, although we are running out of budget mods. Turbo looks like its on for this weekend on the a3 so will be able to report back on the difference the TIP makes, as I never actually found out before..
    it also blew a boost pipe tonight on the Fmic piping, cheap clamps ftl (ran out of high grips)

    How heavy are the wheels? Some light weight wheels would be good, to reduce unsprung mass and slightly aid in acceleration. Old wheels can be sold to help recoup costs too

    What lump is going in the Mk2?

    Not sure on the wheels. They are aftermarket with thin spokes, but they are 18's so won't be really light. I have a set of bad boy 16's that just need tyres, but they are OEM so weigh more then they should. To be honest, it doesn't need masses of help accelerating anywhere, but I'm sure this will change once we got off the country lanes and onto the track.

    Only an AGU, Brute rods, new rings, head refurb but the turbo is a bit left field/an experiment. I'm fitting a TD05HR 16G6 10.5T off a Mitsi Evo 8 along with homemade top mount tubular mani and 3 inch downpipe. So ought to be fun.

    Looking forward to the updates fella

    That should go very well. Turbo from my a3 is going to end up in a MK2 golf which goes really well with just a k03 on it. With a 16g it'll go like a rocket.

    Interesting side note. Clutch was slipping with the Hybrid on the car, but not with the K04. Not going to complain though!

    So it's been a very long time since this was updated.

    The car hasn't really moved unfortunately, what with Christmas and both our cars needing tax, taxing the Leon wasn't a priority. Car still isn't taxed so it's not out on the road at the moment, but it's been getting sorted in preperation.

    Bearing in mind this shape Leon are known for their ability to let water in to the car, leaving this parked up over winter, outside, wasn't ideal. Car was very damp inside with a small lake in the passenger foot well, and the weep holes in the rear foot wells doing there best to get rid of the water. Car has been inside for a few days now and is a lot dryer so we got to work.

    CM Tip was the first thing to go on:





    Next up was the tow strap.



    Then we commenced with stickers, hoping to have gained at least 10bhp between all of them.
