    Ok some of you may know , i have had problems with my MAF sensor etc.I swapped them around for the umpteenth time to log them and lost sight of a small jubilee clip, any guess where it went

    So the remap of the SP51 upgrade to see what it pulls will no longer go ahead as i have destroyed the turbo.

    I have however managed to rescue it by buying a K04-15 instead, so will map that instead

    For comparision purposes here are all 3 together

    K03, SP51, K04-15

    I shed a tear when i saw that so sorry to hear it, the SP does look a little larger than the K04 as well.

    Craig, yes i hope to, am waiting for details as to where to send etc

    Good news, K04 is in, bad news what a ball ache cleaning the **** out of the intercooler and associated pipework etc etc.

    I used a hose to flush the intercooler with after soaking it in Gunk,then dried it out with a hot air gun as best as possible,lol

    So i had her on the rollers today, and find the K03 map with a K04 turbo gave me 6 bhp . After the map, it turned out i was spinning on the rollers, so after strapping her down and 2 guys sat on the fron they tried agin. This time the bloody clutch was slipping, she drives very well but i have no idea what the output is at the moment.

    So now i need a clutch, group buy anyone??????

    Ouch! Gutted for you mate!

    Pictures like that are why I've always thought turbos should have a screen of some sort on them. I know it'd interfere with airflow a bit, but there's got to be something manufacturers can do to prevent accidents like that!

    Glad to read you got a new turbo on there though; and that the remap went well.

    All you need now is that shiny new clutch and you can get the all-important numbers! :)

    Regards,

    Rob.
