    You can still drive it about on low boost. I notice the lump idle, ECU should adapt to solve that unless you have a vacuum leak.

    Out of interest, which exhaust housing a/r did you go for?

    Anti-surge inlet looks mean! :)

    Jim, you are going to thank yourself for getting those supertech valves then as you'll be needing to rev that thing way past the stock rev limit. It's going to be lag....lag....lag.........WOOOOOSH!!!!!

    I'd say you were looking at a 4500-5000rpm -> 8000rpm power band. But you will get 400bhp +

    9000rpm max. But that's really pushing it. Solid lifters required to be safe.

    8.2, maybe 8.5k rpm mate?

    i looked at small gt30 on mine, and to me, looked way too laggy.
    2871 will still be a 400hp setup, with decent spool too. nicer drive and bigger power band

    thats not to say yours wont go like stink! good luck mate! :)

    It will be worth it. You have all the supporting mods to get the best out of the turbo. If you do find the spool a little late, then you can fit a smaller turbo and probably stick with the same software if unitronic. Sell the old one on ebay.

    4WD drive should really hook up well, but it will still spin all 4 wheels........mucho fun!!!

    Love your car mate am heading into a build of my own soon with the same turbo ( different housing tho and 2L ) Glad to see that the Strut brace still fits high mount. Do you have a pic of the manifold you used? or a brand so I can look into it. I may end up custom but would love to have an idea before I attack it.

    mines ceramic coated hence white, but its the same wee beastie.
    DP on my ibiza is a shit to make also, so S3 one must be even worse, as would outlet from tial. nice work.. did you manage full 3" tho?

    all pipework by me. (stainless and aluminium)
    manifold is no longer available (monstor 007) now superceded by the improved SEM manifold.

    SEM manifold is $825 excluding throttle body.
    available in lhs throttle position only, but available with different throttle body sizes and in small or largeport version.
