    Limbo did you see the recent discussion on the gtx28? both in here and over on vortex? i know you were interested in one you see.
    Basically, whatever you do, DONT get a .86 T25 housing.

    are you staying 1.8 or going bigger??

    no i havnt seen them, havnt been on here in a while really, got a link to either? :) iv seen on badger5 page on FB that bill mapped an ibiza with a .86 t25 gtx28 an it didnt hit very good figures i dont think, was laggy too! an yes im staying 1.8, iv been messaging bill about his thoughts on what turbo to go to an iv been pointed towards a FP HTA GT2868R they seem to be around the same price as the gtx's too! just not having much luck finding people running these! :/

    bit of an update on my build.....

    - iv now bought a HTA GT3071 tial exht housing 82a/r .billet comp wheel, v band
    -TSR manifold and downpipe
    -37mm tial ext wastegate
    -rs4 MAF
    -all lines for turbo
    -4inch TIP setup
    -bosch ev 730cc injectors
    -forge baffled sump
    - AGU HEAD, full supertech valvetrain, full port and polish

    just need to buy some forged pistons at 82.5mm standard compression, then i can send the block away to be built, im not strokering the engine this time due to money and time, maybe in the future tho.

    yeh karl its his old kit turbo setup, the DP is gunna need a little modifying to fit i think as he had it modified to fit the leon wereas im using a s3.. with the 82. im not going to change it, im sure it would suit better to go smaller for spool but with it having a billet comp wheel im hoping it wont be too bad, also with me having plans in the pipe line for going stroking in a year or two im sure i can learn to drive with abit of lag :) really struggling with money now to get the rest of the build done :/

    another update.... finally things have started moving! the block i have stripped (first time on a 1.8!) and been sent to get bored and honed,

    few things about the engine.....

    - found pieces of metal in the pick up pipe!...
    -on one of the piston rings it has broken into alot of small pieces... clearly not right!
    -crank and bearings seem to be good condition. but managed to break one of the teeth of the sprocket so ordered a new one of them.

    also decided to fit bucket seats now with 3 point harnesses, so im on the look about to get a half cage fabricated up, safe to say this is not a budget build hah!

    I'd advise against 3 point harnesses dude.

    do it properly, go 6 point.

    4 as a minimum. Depends if this will still stay as a road car 80/90% of the time. Buckle type 4 points are quicker and easier to get in and out without too much faff. 6 be fine if pure track car or occasional blast on roads like prawn.

    Will go tests some out in demon tweeks! Only live like 3 mile away from there and they have over 30 seats woth harnesses on show which you can test.
    Seats/harnessses and cage are a later thing anyways main thing is to get the car driving again! Just got the block back from being bored and honed today tho! So just waiting on crank to be polished and sprocket to get pressed on then can crack on! :D

    another update,

    block has been bored honed cleaned up all ready for the build, the head has been skimmed, crank has been polished and a new sproket fitted

    - majority ofrebuild parts have been sent off to unit20 in neston for the rebuild they are rebuilding bottom end, puting head on and timing up

    then it leaves me to bolt on the rest and get clutch gearbox on and engine in early february hopefully! also done new engine mounts with the poly mix 85A off ebay! was bit of a ball ache but got there in the end!

    all starting to come together now cannot wait for these next couple months!

    anyone heard much about these cages?

    Tunershop - Roll Bars - Roll Cages - Wiechers AUDI A3 8L (Bj. 1996 - 2003) 4 point roll bar type B in steel, black matt painted - tuning - alloy wheels - kw coilovers - spacers - tyres

    What have you done to your headlights. I have a black s3 and the std lights look white against the car. Looks odd. Yours look miles better but cant quite see how you did it. Is all this work being done to your s3? Thought i saw you selling up a while back? I confuse easy though lol

    The headlights I took apart and sprayed some pieces inside matt black. Pretty sure theres a guide on here to do it, be warned tho it is not an easy job I hated it! I had to carefully "cook" them in the oven to seperate. And no wasnt selling up just was selling parts from when it was ko4 :)

    I was afraid you were going to say that. My headlights are looking dated and need a refurb. Maybe the time to do it. Cheers!!
