    I know, its terrible Jase, I filled up £60.00 @ 121.9p ltr of Vpower!
    Id just filled aswell so the miles left have adjusted to 320mls now...

    I havnt really had a chance to see exactly what Im boosting at but I know when I floored it I got to 16 psi.

    What sort of figure are we 1.8t's supposed to be giving, do you know??

    i read that its 7 to 11 psi depending on oem spec, i.e. 130, 150, 163, 190 etc etc with the ko3 turbo, and that it will be safe up to 17psi but no more. A few yanks on audiforum have blown the motor at 21/22 psi.....lol

    Cheers scots, I was gonna PM you actually about it because I knew you'd know. Sorted then, looks like its doing what it should.

    Them Yanks are greedy when it comes to Boost, ive read a few threads about them fiddling with the boost on there standards. Forget that, wouldnt risk it.

    The Yank with the turbo Kit has forced me to lose interest so Ive now decided its K04-15 upgrade instead, looking at TIP's now and sourcing the Injectors then its upgrade time, hopefully before my hols in Sept.

    One of the lads on my street had his boost turned up on his Golf 1.8t a while back, still going strong and my Gosh its quick with its map.

    Im not into the force feeding therefore ill leave mine at what its at for now then get this upgrade sorted!!!

    Cheers Guys, Easy to fit,just requires patients which I lack so the Mrs Says..:drag:

    I got it from the above link on Fleebay (they are very fast with delivery) but now they do the vent one on Fleebay for the B6 which they didnt have at the time.
    Im happy with mine though, like the way its positioned, dont get in the way at all but be prepared to be looking at it constantly for the first few months, monitoring your Boost checking to see if you are lacking.
    You'll soon know if you have a boost leak thats for sure.

    Im changing my gauge though to match the Audi dash before I get rid, cheap enough!


    @ Silver, Yeah I was shocked when i filled up then plus I had been flooring it playing with my Gauge, it soon climbed though when I took my led foot off the pedal, didnt show a great amount still though.

    Now Vpower has dropped 25p since then and a full tank on the DIS shows me 380mile but I managed 288 before the "beeeeeeep". Bloody Quattro's!
