    yea it was me you have been calling :)

    V2, lesser quality welds and material... thinner.. BUT slightly larger bore... some 6.4% larger internal tube diameter over V3
    V3 evolved from v2 and changed material spec and welding improved, and less weld joins.. It did also bring (well a general Relentless thing in my experience of seeing them these past 5 years) is Inconsistency of manufacturer. They are not all created equal.. Some fit and align better than others.. They are all a complete arse to fit tho.. Something consistent, lol

    Jeeez Dave, thats disgraceful quality.. Reminds me of their laughable v1's?!?!!

    Who's selling V2's still then? XS Power? Relentless?

    Thats terrible quality..
    I would'nt be wasting my time fitting it personally.. Not like its an easy to fit item to fear having to remove it again given its likelyhood of cracking and blowing with warpage like that.. and misaligned.. whats the point? Stock one will work better than what you picture.

    Yikes..

    [QUOTE
    cut down pipe take it out up top! Lower gearbox on jack as far as you can disconnect gear selector cables and tuck em out the way I believe it or not can get mine off in about an hour!i do have a 3 inch already fitted makes it slot Easyer too fit down pipe you will need too lower subframe too change down pipe though![/QUOTE]

    cheers darren, so im guessing as i havent even started or took the charge pipe off yet...

    1. everthing i can possibly reach from the top
    2. drivers side arch
    3.drop gearbox and every thing should fall into place and the turbo and manifold will be off?
    4.need some help with the subframe, do i just drop it a little on a trolly jack (after iver marked it all) and slip the down pipe through?

    my mate quoted me 250-300, he said in audi's book they allow 8 hours for a turbo change!!!!! to be fair he told me i know what im doing and will be better of doing it on my drive with him popping round if im stuck... cheaper and im being lazy he said, right i guess lol... done my old mr2's turbo and mani sitting on the engine and that was a nightmare... prob that putting me off more! had anothe garage quote 950!!

    am i really gonna be in rod bending territory!!? should i stick with the stage 1 map until i do the rods?

    also can you do the rods on the car or is that a ridiculous question? lol

    hey you *******s!-) stop hogging my thread!!! lol.

    got a fairly good update, sort of... read on the other similar thread thats running a guy stopped the code/limp mode after finding a split in his dump valve to charge pipe. i had checked mine visually and it looked new so left it alone. thought for the hell of it i'd throw that forge split -r on and in the process discovered the cheap ebay one was unscrewed charge pipe side (i.e the nozzle that screws in that the hose clips too), long story short im not hitting limp mode now! must have been just enough of a leak to mess with the sensors!!!

    well touch wood anyway, boost doesnt spike now and is much smoother and holds at 1.2-3 bar until near the redline... limp mode was hitting around 1.5-6 and ive not seen over 1.4... unplugged the n75 and its still creeping as miracles havent happened but at least its under control it seems...

    might hold of on fitting the mani and doing the turbo for a while so i can enjoy the car for a while and pay someone to do it in a few months when im flush again... maybe see how badger 5's new creation turns out too.

    Hi guys, just thought I would add, this is not a relentless v2 manifold. It is a copy but for some reason was sent to Imran. I have no idea why but it will be replaced without question. I can assure you the relentless owner was shocked to see something as bad as this send out. All genuine goods are branded packaging. This was a mistake, but will be sorted.

    so you have replaced a leaky dv with another slightly less leaky dv then ;)

    dump the split-r dude..
    New 007 or 008 or stock << They dont leak

    So let me get this straight you had a leak between dv/ turbo outlet??? I have no boost creep and still hitting over boost on part throttle if I plant my foot down I do not hit over boost!when on and off throttle I get over boost I'm going too try swapping my dv today with another 007p and see I only have a preload of 0.4 bar ??????
    holds boost well and cannot find any leaks!

    so a leaking dv can cause over boost bill as I was under the impression a leaking dv would not hold boost/make boost?

    im still hitting overboost, went out last night and it came back grrrr... will start taking the turbo off for bill soon.

    darren, all the ecu needs to detect is 2oomb outside of its requested bar to engage soft limp as far as i know... what about your boost pressure sensor?
