    As from the 8th of May I hope I will be making the most of my turbo and engine with 500+bhp I hope fingers crossed :superman:

    I would of booked it sooner but RS are booked up and i'm busy with work:crying:

    Its been a right pain Ironing out all the problems with the conversion as any other person thats done a BT conversion and i bet there is more to got during mapping

    Slow progress but yes about 2 years and it all started with a fail oil pump, If that didn't happen then i'm sure it would be only a mild tuned engine and not the 2.1 and GTX3076r it is today

    IE cams at the end of the year i think to get it near 600bhp??

    I'm interested to see the difference what cams will do on these motors

    And will be good to see your results after mapping as sure it will be a monster and curious how the gtx's fare up ;)

    The GT3076r we fitted to a TT recently did a 35psi run and held it to the redline!... was impressed with that lol... yours should be a monster :)

    Never asked but what sort of power was it making as it had almost the same kit as mine with some Badger modifications

    Do you have the full engine spec of the TT also
