    There's a few out there. JBS, Awesome Jabba APS all do their own kits. Don't forget you'll need uprated brakes, suspension, clutch flywheel etc to cope with all the extra power. From what I gather you'll also need uprated internals so you don't melt everything.

    oh and welcome

    Bit off Topic but i saw your wheels in the Pics section, they look amazing! Must of set you back a fair bit.. what size are they?

    Regards the BT kit, Give Brian at Jabba a call tell him i sent you :D

    As AKY says though its not as straight forward as you think, you need to upgrade alot of other things to handle the power 330 on the GT28RS is achievable though.

    nah no plans like that. although if I sold my motor then someone would have a good start! I just can't warrant spending £5k+ to get another 70bhp, i'd rather buy an Evo, M3, RS4 etc etc, or I'd buy an S3 which already had this kit on.

    I really cant understand spending lots of money on doing it to a car, you really would be better off buying one done (I dont think you get fair enjoyment out of it for how much it costs)

    I bought mine already done and deffo wouldnt have spent even half of what the bloke did on it, Id rather just buy a faster car in the first place

    that made me laugh out loud


    Don't bother with the BT as you will be unimpressed and like many before you sell it soon afterwards (like Ed is)

    why not go for a k04 hybrid from jbs, all in comes to around £2000 or summat and should see 340-350bhp with better manifold, and some snow performance, same as aquamist

    did the Haldex performance controller make much difference to the drive?
