    The interview went OK thanks. They had 62 applicants, of which they only interviewed 5, so thats a start.

    Someone came from London, and various others from other places. I would imagine they save a wider WAN skill set than mine sadly, so I'm not very hopeful.

    But then again, who knows.

    That sounds like just my sort of thing. I may well look into that.

    There are so many museums in the UK I would love to visit.

    I'd take the S3 for the track day.

    I will be buying some Federal RS series semi slicks, as well as taking a spare set of front discs and pads...

    Sounds good. I did a Ferrari experience about 8 years back and it was awesome. I and a fellow asn member will be doing a track day in my friends new R8 when we can agree a date to do so.

    I miss everything about my car,

    The brakes
    The feeling of accelleration
    The noise (baaaAAAAAAAAA ba ba, pop, pssshhht, baaaAAAAAAAAAA psssht)
    The smell
    The seats
    4wd

    Edit:
    The stereo
    Even the stupid squeak from my armrest

    The Cr hybrid k04 never worked properly the hot side was shot from the beginning



    so we had to change the turbo, but were changing it to a different hybrid and Bill didnt want to remove the turbo without removing the head again so he found me a big port head which has new bits (stem seals and exhaust guides...).

    All of which is now on the car were just waiting on a different front mount intercooler to show up.

    Thats good. Lets hope they give you some good news.

    I'll have to watch the vid later. I hope its interesting. :)

    ooo, so it should be even better than if the turbo was working?
    What you aiming for?
    whats the end game?

    Lol the vids not very exciting, it just shows the penny valve moving all over the place and not sealing properly.

    Yeah It was a long way off before, the Maf gave airflow readings equal to around 280-285, but it now it has a big port head because you can advance timing by roughly 10 more degrees, which will hopefully lead to Welly esque levels of hybridness.

    End figures I'm not too fussed about because hopefully this time that'll be most of the work finished and hopefully it'll feel awesome on the road. As a benchmark Wellys made 338 (I think) from 22 psi so with any luck that should be achievable.

    I think the only difference between Welly's set up and mine now are his mahhosive 76mm intercooler pipes, his is a non wideband car and mine is and mine has done 50K less.

    Fingers crossed!

    LOL

    That's absolutely right figures wise. Best figure I had from it was 344 bhp, but to be fair that was not sustainable as the boost was just too much.

    You're right on the setups though, except for the mileage - the car may have done 50K more, but the engine hasn't.

    I've got mine crossed for you too dude, hoping for a good end result. :thumbsup:

    Cheers bruv, good point on the engine I forgot about that.

    It feels like it's been going on for ages.

    No, but I know a lot about 1.8Ts, and have done engine conversions in the past. How hard can it be?

    It didn't tell me I had one dude, sorry. Just looked now.

    Do you have Samung Kies installed? I sort of assumed that you did....

    The reason I ask is that Kies will give you ALL the drivers you need. Following on from that, Kies is normally responsible for phone firmware updates, and if you haven't checked for new firmware there first, you might just be able to download it and Kies will flash the phone for you...

    If I lived closer to you I'd definitely be up for it. It's something I want to do when I have my own house and a garage big enough to do it in. Probably be a while :(

    Yeah it's going to be a big learning curve for me, and whilst I hope i'll be able to get some suspension/brake/chassis skills I think the engine might be too far our of my league, I happy to give it a go but then again I'd rather it worked properly.
