    As Andrew suggests though, I am not sure what benefits you would get without going BT tbh...

    Surely that "conversion" loses all idle control?

    A proper cable throttle still has a motor inside which it uses to adjust the throttle flap to allow the car to adjust its idle speed for cold starts etc...

    Andrew could you fabricate a adaptor plate for a golf 4motion TB for s3 inlet manifold? Also hows the large port custom manifold coming on?

    Agu-turbo you have got a bargain indeed.

    The car is hopefully going on the dyno this weekend. I am still running the std TB atm but depending how the dynoing goes I may swap over to the R32 TB on the std mani for a direct comparison and if I get time etc I also plan to see if I can try it with the SEM inlet too... just depends on how busy Bill gets etc really..

    Be good to see the comparison between the standard one and the r32 one. Hope the dyno goes good, you having a mapping session?
