My first mod :)



forge 007p diverter valve (not dump valve) makes more noise than the standerd dv but is nice and subtle not too 'look at me i have a turbo' kinda thing.

I wouldn't call 9.6s to 60 nippy!
My car isn't fast, i'd say nippy at best, and thats around 7.4ish.

it depends on what your used to, coming from a 1.0 its rudy quick! but you get used to the power. the plan power wise is as follows

standrd = 180bhp
remap = 210bhp
K04 (s3) turbo + fmic + stage 2 map = 270bhp = 0-60 in 5.5 seconds = (Y)

as far as bang for your buck goes, imo its a great car to mod, even upgrading the turbo isnt mega bucks because the turbo from the s3 is a nice pretty simple upgrade.

the camera used was my mates canon EOS 40D

5.5 to 60, i'll give you that is quick! Not fast, quick! :) I'll think I own a fast car when I can afford to run one that's 0-60 under 5s!

under 4 seconds is easily achievable with this engine, the big turbo kit is about £1500 tho! would rather save my buck for somthing a little more special (Y)
