    hi this my first real post so here we go i've got a 99 1.8t with a cc phase 1 remap on a k03 but i think i might be able to get my hands on a k03s charger for the price of a drink :icon_thumright: and was thinking of putting on and getting a phase 2.......but my car has got 129k on the clock so its run in now lol its got a full vag history and the engine still sounds sweet with no smoke at all but i've got this nagging feeling that it might go pop if i do .on the other hand i know of a skoda Octavia tdi taxi that had a remap that ran to 495k until the 3rd gearbox gave up so 129k don't sound to high so should i just go for it or just make do with my puny 190 ish bhp ????

    Its a decision that ultimately you can only make,anyone can say yes it will be fine but its just a prediction even if a mechanis looked at the engine they could not predict if it'll fail unless obvious problems.
