    GT28RS sized turbo is a compromise of size/power vs delivery of said power from mid 3krpms to the limiter.

    you need to budget £4k+ for a decent job. (330bhp level)
    S3 is so much more difficult given the transfer box and space restrictions for underslung options

    360bhp.. from k04.. really?

    you think?

    ask for proof before you part with hardearned ££

    I dont see it personally.

    I know TD claim this for their top hybrid.. but never seen proof

    so realistacly do you think you could do me a drive in drive out low powered turbo conversion for 4k?? what would the kit consist of?
    im very interested now,
    or do you think that a hybrid turbo to these levels would be a better idea? cheers

    yeah man thats mine, i just smashed my 6th sump in coming up that hill! there was a rock size of an american football, didnt see it till too late and smack! if you have a look when you're coming up someones put sand down to cover all the oil, the amount of smoke coming out was ridiculous, i was getting high of the fumes! having to drive a shitty little yellow saxo at the moment, depressing.

    didnt realise badger billl was based in stonehouse, that isnt the VW specialist next to the petrol station is it?

    easiest to do, would be a hybridised k04 like turbo dynamics list... I would'nt expect anywhere near their claimed power levels, but they should break the 300 level without ringing its neck.

    BT is a different prospect completely, and more ££ as a consequence..
    consider other things that will be required before this.. fmic, decent exhaust, clutch probably, brakes etc etc

    £4k+ is the region from which it would start from - very much down to spec

    finally found the time to get mapping sorted today. fuel is spot on all way through rev's.
    smooth to drive now, and you can confidently rev it now.

    its nice to have it all 100% finished now :)
    i may add a water injection kit at some point, but other than that the spending has finished thank god!

    would like to hit the dyno again before vw driver day at combe (less than 2weeks away) but dont think i'll find the time.
    main thing is, it drives superb now, issue free

    many thanks to Bill for continuing to adjust maps after vairous coil pack and maf related problems, you got there in the end[​IMG]

    i've done what i wanted to, built a big turbo a3 quattro. its a very nice car to drive.
    just cant afford it and a van.

    i'd much rather have the money in bank, than car sat in garage with job change coming up.

    Only just seen this amazing car. Hands down to you mate, done what you wanted to do, cant fault you. Respect for that. Great build thread read it all and enjoyed it.:applaus:
    I'm gonna be doing a simalier project on my car next year or on a 2.0tfsi depends on overall cost and my current chassis.
    Sorry to see you have to sell the car. Have you tried putting it in pistonheads and ebay? Who ever gets the car, gets them self a real good bargin.
    Good luck with the sale mate:thumbsup:
