    looking good mate. very jealous of how quickly you seem to have thrown a big turbo setup together!

    Oz's were a serious bargain too! bloody hell.

    haha dont worry mate swift is actualy a justy now and it will be coming soon but this is some fun for now i think im gonna get the wheels painted by a wheel place as its barley more than it would cost me buying paint and spending a day sanding them etc.

    for now boost pipes need tidying up this week going to make a turbo brace to head

    also a 3" exhaust system half already done as downpipe is so long

    got some aerocatch locking pins today too looking foward to loosing the bonnet latch :)

    when you know the right people things dont take long ;)

    hahahaha.

    Good luck mate, love the work and the attitude towards it all, much achieved without looking like a big deal, despite us all knowing the work that goes into building such a setup.

    With the amount of work you've done, are you not tempted to just throw a set of rods in it and release it's true potential?

    When I ran the hybrid on a stock engine, every single time I opened it up I wondered, ''will this be the pull that blows it up''

    @prawn tbh i was gonna map it and sell it asap as i want to focus on my swifts i dont have the heart for the audi never have ive got a spare engine sitting there so maybe only thing putting me off selling is what the hell will somone pay...its got a hella lot of mods and nothing on its cheap 5k off of parts and countless man hours but 180k and stock motor :? the turbo set up brakes suspension bla bla people will just see another A3


    @soljha the red gti i just got i was gonna turbo it but i cant be bothered with the gearbox issues again so im thinking honda b16/gearbox been done before basically mounts and some custom shafts

    oh and the swift needs a tps sensor wich is 200 pounds ! i may aswell fit a ecu to it and use any tps i want lol

    the white swift/ justy is the rea project hope to have that on the floor soon :D

    lol @ 'pupemamal'. I suppose your right, but I wouldn't of spent so much money time and effort on something that didn't excite me in the first place? Each to their own I guess. You sure didn't hang around when it came to some massive changes, shame you couldn't finish it then sell it and let someone else benefit all your hard work :)
