    That is very nice - only seen one picture of a Golf with the TT dash fitted and I'm still not 100% sure on it due to the the door cards and shape of car but fair play al the same. How much work is actally involved in the conversion then?

    You thought about facelifted rear lights?

    Steering is something i would have to change due to having a full inteior but that's personal preference. :happy:

    There is a small amount of cutting and trimming to get the dashboard seated correctly. The hardest part is getting the loom to work as the car has an engine conversion also.

    The small steering wheel (momo 280mm) is perfect and makes driving alot more fun. It is also there to create space and allow people to view the interior etc.

    Alot of people keep mentioning the facelift rears. but I think the colour of the car suits the darkened lenses. I think the clear strip would look strange so thats why i have kept it.

    It may well be dude, easiest way to tell is to measure g/s of airflow on Vagcom

    Are you using the standard TIP?

    It's a modified tip, its been reinforced. Not my doing, it came with the engine. I have a liquid guage I'm sure you can see airflow on those?

    Yeah its not like we`re just picking fault..its just a proven fact that they`re fairly restrictive on turbo engines.

    +1 just trying to help a brother out.

    I think the liquid gauge uses g/s to calculate power, so if you were to try a different filter type it might make a difference on there

    Same as mine :thumbsup:

    i put the Jetex cone on yesterday and kept stalling so its going for a remap next week as the Jetex show impressive gains on K04's so on our K26 there should be even more to be had!
