    Glad its been an inspiration :thumbup:

    Its undergone a few changes recently, after some serious arch work it now runs new 17 * 8 et33 TD's with 215/40/17 RS-R's:

    Its over at Bill's at the moment, 5 speed sqs dog box with plate diff has been fitted - as good as the quaife is it was struggling a bit!

    Bill's in the process of fabricating a new inlet manifold, the idea being to achieve the same power with less boost keeping everything a little cooler and less stressed:

    Few other tweeks including a battery cut off, fire extinguisher and possibly some more sensors for the ecu that can be monitored with
    G60luke's AutoDigi display:

    Was looking a bit tight on that side, think it may be running for your dyno day?
    I'll try and get Luke to come along with something from his vag stable - more cars than I've got shoes lol

    Dare I ask for details on the inlet? Short runner large diameter for reduced frictional losses and individual velocity stacks?

    Nice build that, big bumper mk2's are always a timeless classic

    runners are largeport AEB audi ones, cut down... short runners due to space constraints.
    Price is ~450+ to make one.
