    All I'm gonna say is - FLIP ME it's like being remapped again! The sound is lovely - not to chavy at all, in fact barely noticeable when cruising normally. But open her up beyond 3k rpm giving it the beans and it sounds like a Dyson hoover's been turned on & the DV just sounds naughty! (007P) One happy chappy. :)

    Thanks dude. With any luck I'll be in mine on Tuesday, so I'll have heard how that sounds too :) Won't be mapped though, just putting some miles on it prior to mapping.

    nope :( won't fit a ko3S dude, as the inlet is simply too small!

    B5 V1 billet adaptor on a ko3S:

    You can see it's miles bigger than the ko3 inlet

    depends on which hybrid really my friend.....

    a normal ko3/s hybrid runs a machined ko3 comp wheel, so the external dimensions are exactly the same, and it'd be too big again.

    The ko3 hybrid + that Bill has developed runs a ko4 compressor housing, and can be fitted with a 3'' TIP, although due to how the ko3 turbo frame sits much lower than a ko4, the inlet would foul the gear shift cables badly, and needs a fair bit of modfiying.

    Nothing is ever simple!

    I highly doubt it! The billet adaptor might, but the ashtray VXR has the turbo hung off the front of the engine with an integrated hotside/ex manifold arrangement.

    The billet bit is not the problem... that can be made to fit the turbo ok... its the position of the turbo thats the problem... there is simply no room for a larger TIP without serious modification... On the Lupo we had to reposition the gear change cables (not as easy as you may think) and modify the water pipe for the heater...

    Not many peeps will want to do that just to get a TIP to fit...
