Dude BMC's are well known for choking airflow k04'd cars. very smart motor though!
Good job it's a k26 Mtm then
probably even worse! lol
Knew that was coming.
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
Yer no don't get me wrong any help is mucho appreciated!, I'll whip it off and see how things are then.
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!
Sexy looks there Joe..
Joe check your PM inbox mate, would really love to hear about your engine conversion, thanks!
whats the spec on them wheel joe? and is it air ride or is that how u drive?
I must confess to being pretty excited by the cleanliness of your engine bay. Bootiful, really bootiful.
Cheers mate! It took a while..

I've edited my post above
Thats ok lol think we have both heard it before thats my cars lil sister!,lol i don't know ah!,sorry for writing over the post of the silver s3 nice motor,looks real track!
Looking good Adam.
seeing as all the 'show cars' are poping up and the confusion over my car and adams hope this clears it up for people
kev your car seems to clear up period
Just thought I'd put a few more pics of my car up to show they are different.
Looks lovely mate, I love liquid Yellow. Nice, very nice.
I bet all the yellow car owners love the fact that everywhere you drive there is someone punching another person and saying "yellow car". They all look great, especially those massive matching porsche brakes!!
True that does happen!,i recently attended austrias worthersee vw show,a german bloke tryed explaining the yelow car joke hit me and walked of!,normaly you don't hit the driver but prap's it works different in other contrys lol
just a few more pics
those brakes are truely awsome though, how come you did'nt have the front bumper insert colour coded aswell??
Hello kev!,thanks mate,um the main reason is stone chips,and think it brakes the bumper up abit,the other colour coaded bits are more in your face bits !,i do like the way your interiour is stitched as wel looks nice mate!!
yeah after i asked the question i looked at the pics again and thought na would'nt look right, think it looks better as it is tbh,
True!.you should have came to worthersee vw show in austria,i can't explain how good i was,or the only way i can ive already booked next year!.my mate put a vidio on youtube search ~worthersee 2011 driving about~,not the best video better half way through!
i want to be going to lots of euro shows really but i havent got a passport and have spent to much money on the car for this year tbh, my plan is to maybe not change much on the car next year so as to save me some money to then do the euro shows instead/aswell
Thats what i was goin to do save more, for more power next year!,that went out the window!,allways spending renewing parts,or uprating them!,its a habit!
Here is mine. Owned it for just over a week,
Since buying it I have painted grill, de-wipered rear, fitted aero wipers off mk4 golf, coilovers, forge dv, pipercross panel filter.
Need to change wheels very soon!!!
