    Right driving along today on motorway no problems at all then suddenly I went to throttle it a bit and thought a super tractor had got up my arse no it was my f*** ing cat get home after driving 10 miles with people turning there heads before I could even see them to find the cat had come adrift at the flange that bolts to the turbo. So now is the time for another job to the list just as I'm about to move house in 2 week and go on holiday in 4 week sods f***ing law.

    So I plan to do these jobs.

    1. New turbo from scroll k03-sp54x (£600)
    2. New de-cat pipe (£80) - eBay turborevs one - Opinions
    3. Fast road clutch and lightened solid flywheel (£399) - Techniclutch - opinions anyone used these or no someone who has.

    Apart from you will be lucky to get hold of scroll now sadly. Since Sean has moved back to the US it seems that they no longer answer emails etc SHAME as the UK equiv are not filling me with confidence either with a few of the 8L boys having issues with oil consumption.

    Weld that cat back to the flange to keep you mobile, it will be fine...

    d'oh!

    Never heard of techniclutch, if it was my money i'd be buying the ECS RA4 flywheel (or an equivalent like the one from TTV Racing) and a standard S4 clutch.

    Cheers for the info on the ECS RA4 Aragon Can't afford the aluminium stage 1 so steel stage 1 it will be I'm glad I posted this as for the same money I get a known and trusted brand where as people have had positive and negative dealings with getting the wrong items and problems bolting there clutch up to flywheel with poor workmanship from techniclutch regarding faulty products. You have shown me the way wise one lol.
