    I thought it was because it was a shed and they needed a week to get it up to scratch jay?

    I think you're right. They're gonna laugh at it all week, then give it back unmapped. It's only what they'd do with mine, so you're not alone.

    Hope it goes well this week though, I bet you're like a kid at Christmas.

    I've just scanned over your build thread jay, never really looked at it before. Shame it was all written in a foreign language, but the pictures were nice.

    I'm genuinely excited for you tomorrow. Are you getting public transport there? oohhhhhhh.

    Pfft, we all know my modding ends at cosmetics. I don't know my maf from my tip. ;) And there's no point modding the dirty 1.9derv...especially if I am considering selling up this summer. I've been looking at the 3.0tdi's, mmmmmmm.

    Nice one bud. What's the deal with these K03s setups and rods? When will things become a rod lottery?

    It already is, for both of us. Regardless of what anyone says as soon as you go past a well written stage 2 map you're playing the Thunderball on a daily basis. Be it a K03 or a GT28. Once the torque and power band gets ramped up across a further band and lower down the range you re introducing the same risks you do with a K04; 99% of them will never go boom. But that's the whole point of a lottery, you'll get lucky for 364 days a year then lose it all on day 365.

    These new K03 maps are getting more and more aggressive , times are moving on and with people making 300lbft+ and knocking on the 250bhp door we can't sit back in safety with our gay little turbos like we did this time last year.

    My advice Jay if you are serious about this fit rods; not meth. Then you can enjoy it forever no matter where you take it :)

    2 taxis and 3 trains later I finally have my car back!
    Drove like a dream, took me a little while to get used to it again but must say its rapid! Great work again from niki.
    Torque steer on this is immense! Boosting to 15psi sounds normal but now that extra 5psi the turbo sounds so different. Louder and slightly more aggressive. Love it!

    just liked up a tank o the good stuff, now to have some (sensible) fun
