    Tuffty how do you find these? I'm in need of new tyres and can't believe how cheap these are and they get great reviews!

    While were on the subject of tyres, do you think there would be much benefit going to 245s? Obviously with the appropriate rim size. Or the additional rotating/ unsprung mass ruin any gain from additional grip

    They are OK I guess... Tbh I am the wrong person to ask... The **** cold/wet weather doesn't do the justice and they are worse than a decent road based tyre from cold... They seem to need heat in them to work and I don't drive hard enough often enough to really comment... Maybe the warmer summer months will be better but I tend not to drive fast in cold damp conditions

    Depends what your application is... Is was going to go to 235/40 assy 2's before trying these as my power level made it feel justifiable but again you are asking the wrong person...

    On the road I doubt it will make any real difference... On a track then maybe but itself relative... Tyres are just one piece of the handling package

    As for the unsprung mass thing... You just turn the boost up or fit a bigger turbo... Problem solved right?

    ;)

    Cheers. I think I'm going to give them a go, found them for £281 for a set of four on tyre leader. Got to be worth a shot

    Thanks for the reply mate

    I got this last week I'm hoping to get a good 2 bar out of it

    [​IMG]

    Gtx3071r ;) will this give me more power than my ko4?

    I'm weighing up 8" or 8.5" lightweight wheels. I'm thinking I'll stick with 17s for the handling side of things. So many choices to make when building a race car nobody warned me!!

    I did take what you said into consideration, but after talking to a couple of people who use it (one with over 500bhp) both rhd, I decided to go ahead. The 2.5" dump is a bit of a bummer and I'll get new coolant and oil lines but apart from that it looks great.
    Guess we will find out when I fit it

    So today started like this....
    [​IMG]

    ....then this happened...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :D

    Swapped the cam position sensor wheel and cam pulley over... I have an ARP bolt so can reuse it but OE bolts need replacing...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Used new seals and VVT gasket...
    [​IMG]

    Cleaned up the chain and VVT unit ready to put back in the head...
    [​IMG]

    ...then as things appeared to be going sooooo well she fought me again lol...
    [​IMG]

    ...so out came the life saving kit again...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Locktight and a stud like the other one and we are done...
    [​IMG]

    Timed up...
    [​IMG]

    ...and all done..
    [​IMG]

    Ran the engine up with the MAF unplugged and charge pipe off to make sure there were no issues or codes... then put her all back together again...
    [​IMG]

    The drive home was interesting... Idle is no different... Boost has dropped as expected (open loop boost control)... Feels no less powerful despite running less than 1.5 bar... seems no less drivable than before...

    If anything she feels more 'eager'... a third gear overtake felt smooth and relentless... should be interesting when she is knocking on the door of 2bar again :)

    Didn't realise you couldn't reuse the OEM cam pulley bolt. Any idea of the part number?

    Looking forward to seeing the figures once the map has been tweaked. I fitted the IE intake cam to my car last week, no dyno figures yet but there's a noticeable difference in spool and mid range power.

    Slightly slower spool better mid range?

    Spool appears around 500rpm sooner compared to standard cam.

    Wow that's good.
    Do you have figures before the cam to compare when you get it retuned?

    Yes I have original dyno plots from when it was mapped 14 month ago at badger 5. When I have the map tweaked I will post the results as there isn't a great deal of information on after market cams for the 1.8T.

    I have the week off work as I have 15 days to use up before the end of June :)

    Been lovely so far and have been doing a spring detail on the car...

    Not sure if its because I have been using the car to go to work on the motorway or not but there was a layer of aweful yellow shizzle over the bottoms of the doors which took some shifting...
    [​IMG]

    But after a bit of elbow grease and a lick over with ultrafina I banged on a few layers of (the now discontinued :( ) Jeffs Werstat Acrylic
    [​IMG]

    ...and done a bit of cleaning in the engine bay
    [​IMG]

    Just got the interior to do which will include refeeding the leather etc and a good clean of the wheels and sealing with some C5

    Took a 'day off' to pop over to Bills to lend a hand as my back was killing me (getting too old lol) so have been cleaning parts from Gops S3 ;)

    Then this happened!!!
    [​IMG]

    ...resulting in this ;)
