    ...another reason I used the 70mm lol

    Build order my friend.... in all my years of modding cars, build order is key... you will have to fit stuff and plug stuff in based on an order... so wiring loom then tb... in this case

    I think I flipped master cylinder seal when filling my brakes had one of them bleeding kits that you attach to a tyre or pump and use the air pressure to push through the brake fluid. Loads of fluid pulled out of each caliper and slave cylinder but pedal doesn’t get harder at all are there service kits for them or is it a new one needed

    I’m looking at a private plate and it’s down to s321vrt ( s3.2 1 vrt). Or s30mgu ( s3 omg u) Not sure I think the s321vrt plate just makes the car look older what you think ?

    So with how things are at the minute I can’t bring my self to spend £1400 on a manifold, I really want to just for the look of it but it’s something I might revisit in the future for a twin scroll. After speaking to a few who build vrt’s have been told the manifold I have is fine for around 600 but I’m Changing it anyway to the Cts manifold it’s got a bigger wastegate opening and bigger opening for the turbo so should flow a bit better and is on its way from the states now

    got some 1000cc injectors with spark plugs ordered , with a gfb fxs fpr to fit in the Cts billet housing and Cts fuel rail
    Now just on the hunt for a cat back exhaust if anyone knows of any

    I used an Ibiza OE filter for years... supported my 620hp ... I now use what is essentially called a Bosch Motorsport filter but in reality is just a Bosch filter that takes fittings...

    Have you not read any of my thread? LOL

    Bosch part number is 0450905021... should be about 12 quid for the filter but Torques do a kit with the fittings as it uses M14x1.5 and M12x1.5 fittings allowing you to use -6AN fuel line

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bosch-04...Performance-Fuel-Filter-8-Micron/381571013429

    or just the filter...

    Cheers that a bit cheaper, I have but I couldn’t find it There’s so much good info in there I get distracted,
    Speaking of which the wind has blew the car cover off and the paint peeling of the b pillars caught my eye, so I have ordered these and if they are good quality il be order the door blades to match

    Glad to see you have the priorities straight LOL ;)

    They are nice tbh... I have a set of decent blades waiting in the wings for when I eventually get my body work sorted but those carbon ones do look nice... although I would prob end up just painting them the OE colour anyway lol

    Looking at gearbox upgrade, will be buying another’s drp gearbox so I have a spare and doing 4th gear support and steel Forks, but is it worth fitting the tfi gears?

    Isn't it just the final drive they change?

    Im not sure, from what I just seen online it was basically swap the lot it the drp box , when I ordered my injectors I was speaking to the guy at rushworth performance and he was asking what I’m doing and said to do the forks and 4th support as a minimum which I was planning to do anyway but also maybe change the gear set for tdi, from what I seen would give low rpm at 70-80mph in 6th for motorway driving

    This was something I was looking into, best TDI gearbox to get those gearsets from are from an FEL code 02M Quattro Box. But they are rare as rocking horse sh1t. Like PT said Martin from Gas&Gears is the man you want to speak to. They’ve close the workshop for 3 weeks now, but he knows all the ins and outs. For instance he said be very careful when buying the 4th input support.... he is having to rework these because the quality isn’t there anymore. With the power your thinking of going for personally I’d be inclined to go monster performance gearset like I’m doing. Gives you piece of mind, these are solid for over 1000bhp.
