    Hi rubjonny, would you know if a 1.8 8v digifant fuel pump is up to the task to run a 1.8t conversion? I intend to do a swap to a AUQ engine with ECU tune so possibly looking at ~240 BHP

    you might be pushing it a little bit at around 240bhp region I recon, but speak to whoever is doing the tuning work they'll have more idea what sort of fuelling they want to see to support their recommended mods

    Cheers rubjonny. I'm currently focused on gathering parts so I guess I'll require an upgrade. I have an AUM mk4 golf unit around and can get a mk2 16v gti one as well
