    By the end of Saturday he will have haha

    As they are the same engine as the MK5 GTI then things to look out for are weak diverter valves, coilpacks and the PCV valve

    Otherwise they are an extremely robust engine

    So just the same as the old
    1.8ts has the turbo been upgraded then from when it was on the 1.8ts because 240 bhp was the max you could go.

    Have you had the Bora rolling roaded at 240bhp?? Fair play if you have, but if you haven't then I expect you are around the 220bhp mark...

    As above only problem I have had since mapping is the diverter valve which has now been replaced with a Forge alternative.

    Had this engine in a Golf and had to replace the clutch/DMF after Stage 1 remap, DV was changed too just to be sure as its well documented that this is a weak component.
    Other than that, no issues, great engine.
    Enjoy.

    The 'Dv' diverter valves were a massive weakness on a certain aged car until they revised them,they are just a rubber diagphram on the old ones that become brittle n rip with movement,they were pooh on standard cars and then when cars were mapped they just ripped them a new 'A-hole' to put it kindly,they are about £70+vat from the dealers
