    Yeah its true what you say! DIY is the way to go... I don't know if I have the balls to do a engine re-build like you though!

    No lag just loads of torque!!

    I really need to get it mapped to take full advantage of it. Im currently running stage 2 but I've added a few bits since then. I think my turbo is giving up as its chucking out blue smoke every now and then so i think i'll just go k04 now.

    Torque is a conrod bender! Lol, no I'm joking...

    I would ideally like to go k04 as well but I'm scared of breaking other bits like CV's, gearboxes and rods... Will see though!

    Next Mod I did was make my own boost gauge pod:

    [​IMG]

    Also fitted a new exhaust tip because I didn't like the sound the old one made. But the bumper was BADLY cut so it looks a bit ****!! But I fixed that pretty soon after...

    And this is how I fixed it:
    I'll let the pictures do the talking...

    Haha no I did actually spray them... I read before the time it doesn't really make a difference... One drive around the block and it all burnt off... Breaks are all good!

    Yeah Plasti dip is getting quite big here. But its still relatively new to most! I really like the stuff and its so easy to work with...

    The exhaust isn't actually too loud.. I quite like it!

    Devils Own DVC30 stage 2 Progressive kit was installed this weekend. It was quite a lot of work but so worth it in the end!

    Not sure on Devils Own , But AEM tell you not to put the pump in the engine bay or where its open to the elements, does your wing liner cover that?
    Neat install though... :arco:
