    Picked up my car on friday from mrc. very pleased! slight problem with the brakes though so havent been able to really push it. Manir at MRC said its probably the one way valve from the brake servo - when i go hard on the power then straight onto the brakes theres no pedal for about 2 seconds then the vacum must build up again and its fine. I think the new charge pipe is touching slightly on the standard strut brace as well. a few minor adjustments and it should be fine.From what i can feel already the car has been mapped very smoothly, its a nice strong power progression, not so on/off anymore. It puts a big big smile on my face anyway!! It is slightly too loud for my liking at the mo' since the fitting of the the new single sport cat set up.i'm gonna get the Milltek resonated centre section to replace my non resonated section. Hopefully that will suppress the sound to get that perfect sound. Although it does sound really really mean at the moment I dont think i would be a big hit with the neigbours! I will post pics soon and some figures when i get it dyno'd

    Same as the rest of us, in the real world with the correct airflow the car would normally see, not in an artificial environment.

    Ah, 'the rest of us'...

    Not having a dig at MRC or any other tuners without a dyno. Just asking.

    Must be tricky to get full load data reproducably etc etc.

    the road is the only place to map a car properly imo. not to say you cant do a lot of thee work on a dyno but still needs to be run in the real world to get it right.

    Hi Sanspeed,

    Quick question, do you know the Garrett part number of the turbo you have? Should be 739548-XXXX?

    I ask because there are two varients of this and im trying to establish which performs better on the road than the other?

    Input most appreciated.

    Thanks

    I may well be wrong ( im sure ill be corrected if i am!) but i think its possible the manifold is from a Danish company called Daugbjerg www.scanturbo.dk, they do two or three manifolds for the 1.8T engine.

    If so its a very nice high nickel manifold with nice aero properties.

    Danish apparantly... How much is the kit? The ATP one is rather let down by the quality of its mani (apparantly).

    That could be it, they have two versions a 350+bhp and a 450+bhp one.

    I have the 350+ one behind my desk and its not that, but that might be the 450+ item as ive not seen that one.

    I believe the manifold alone is approx 180 gbp
