    Well I've been tinkering more with the car! Changes the actuator to a Black widow turbo's actuator:
    View attachment 16998

    I gave her a service, most pipes are silicone! Now bills got it for an exhaust and custom map! Will see what happens when it's all done! Last time It dyno'd at 251bhp 270lb ft. I'm not really chasing numbers, as long as the car is healthy, I'm happy :)

    Thanks Karl! I try and keep her on top as she's getting old! That sounded really wrong lol but the exhaust seems to be coming along nicely :) for those on Facebook, check out the Badger 5 FB page!

    Looks wicked that does! Custom Map next :D little list of what I've done to get the car ready for this:
    3" turbo back (badger 5 custom)
    Wellycooler
    b5 TIP with recent filter clean
    catch can system
    forge 007p recently serviced with new piston
    new MAF
    New N75 valve
    New fuel pump
    Almost all pipes replaced for silicone to eliminate boost leaks
    Full service done just before it went to bills (although I didn't do the fuel filter but asked bill if he could kindly do it) :)
    NGK BKR7E plugs
    Beach buggy uprated Actuator
    lots of Shell v power
    some samosa's for Bill! Haha! I'm sure there's more but I can't think ATM lol. I did do a few sensors like crank and wheel speed sensors but that's because they failed.

    Jeepers, no middle boxes on the exhaust. You planning on breaking the sound barrier :)

    Looking great Gops / Bill.

    Very decent spec minus the current 'trendy' relentless manifold that'll fail anyway. be interested to see what can be made from it :)

    Thank you guys :) it's so teasing as I haven't heard it yet but it should be nice as all of bills set ups are nice and quiet! I actually sold my relentless mani! It was a V3 and I had no real use for it! I was chatting to bill about the k04-64 setup as I was so interested in it, that would be my preferred reason for a rebuild! The best bit is, it's not that much more than a 1.8t k04 as your not buying a £300 mani! So that money will be saved for my future build.. So hurry up prawny ;)

    okies.. Settled on to this as final figure.. Tamed down its torque from an earlier 293lbft badger torques to 278lbft (+16% Badger torques to get equivalency on rtech/jkm dyno)

    Nice car Gops
    Rare to see one perform and react well to mods and mapping.

    Oh my just picked it up and it's bloody amazing!! Sooooo much better than before!! So when the cars warm its so responsive, when you want power it's there. I felt it first in 6th gear, I touched the pedal and it just flew!! When I got off the M42 and onto the A45, it sounded like a jet on boost, that exhaust is so free flowing but it's no where near droning, it's actually OEM quiet but it'll roar on throttle - just the way I wanted it!! All the gears it feels so powerful, I can't fault anything.

    Again I have to thank badger 5, amazing work! Bill is a great person to speak to and you just have full confidence in him! Good meeting tuffty today too, had a few laughs! Enjoy the pakora's lol! Simply outstanding, so happy :) :) :) :) :)

    I got to the level of rods mate, so I bought rods. I'm now at the level of the turbo... but the mrs will kill me if I buy a bigger turbo lol.

    Enjoy.
