Polished the turbo compressor housing


Got a few more integrated engineering parts



Set of integrated engineering camshafts







Start of mock up



Ran out of time so just bought the manifold and bought another wastegate to accommodate








Polished my oil filler cap a little


Heatshielding added for coilpack loom














Changed the oil return line - previous one was a bit bodged and I didn't like the way it looked





Added some heatwrap and heat shielding:

Car went in for mapping today with Bill at Badger5



Still a few things to sort out on the car, need a second uprated fuel pump and relocate the lambda sensor further upstream closer to the turbo. But the results speak for themselves, 491bhp with only 24 psi boost, the turbo is still half asleep, after several dyno runs nothing is glowing.

Started to tidy up my next brake upgrade, I plan to keep my 13" two piece rotors





And of course some nice fittings and adapters to go with my inline da31 pump (sytec intank feeding)

Thanks bud! It's always nice when people appreciate the work that's gone into the golf, especially so when it's a fellow enthusiast - someone like yourself would better appreciate the work done than someone passing by at the petrol forecourt and with what you said I know I'm on the right track.

I'm possibly looking at a 4motion shell I can drop everything into, I missed out on one this morning, was in a meeting when the auction ended at £340, absolutely gutted at that price. I'm going to keep looking for a bargain like that one, with 4motion I should be able to turn up the boost a bit.

I intend to keep it locked in 50:50 permanently, it will drive less like a haldex and more like a torsen 4wd, it should hold down the power pretty well and be quite good in snow/ice too.
