They quote ?3100 but I would reckon the total costs would be more closer to ?5000 going up to 10K-15K if really serious!

Intercooler isnt included in the price on their site, and im not sure its actually available at all yet, surely we would've seen/heard of one by now if there was a bolt-on kit available ??

I think ECP or EIP Tuning?????(someone correct me please!) has a full turbo kit for the 4mo, in fact i'm sure someone was going down this route, but damaged their car! (i'll look for the post)

Here you go:

http://www.uk-mkivs.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=38170&SearchTerms=,v6

Right, After giving the Supercharger conversion some thought and a lot of phone calls latter i have decided to go for a Turbo conversion instread. www.eiptuning.com (the guys with the mental R32 Bi-tubro) have been very very helpful. With the items that i have and am looking at getting, 350-400BHP would be a realistic power figure.

So the spec so far is.....

A custom maifold.

New ECU

HKS T4 / T3 Hybrid Roller bearing turbo

Low Compression Pistons

Metal gaskets

Nice Big Intercooler

Nice new Clutch ETC

I'd just go for the S3 option.

Nice out of the box package easily chippable to around 280+bhp with minimum fuss.

Prices are starting to come down a bit now too...

Me like the idea too and if you keep the exterior of the car looks like a standard Golf [;)] Nice indeed!!!

Who over in UK does this stuff then anyway?

I'm going to contact them first thing in the New Year to work out options, prices [:(]and implementation time for a project starting late 2005. I want to know how realistic, reliable the system is and what else needs to be done apart from the obvious, brakes, handling etc, which will kick off in Jan-Feb with some ARB's and UK feasibility in terms of handling the project.[?]

We?ve got some monster Gti?s, so me thinks we had some kick *** 4mo?s in the UK[:D]

I think the reason we don't see many UK turbo'd V6's on UK shores is because there are problems fitting the turbo or turbo pipework as the cars are RHD.

However, I'm sure that could be worked around by creating a custom manifold or something like that?

I would love to see some turbo'd UK MK4 V6's! I'm sure they would be awesome to drive!

Yeah, I posted a link above to an older post where a 4mo owner was going to do the same thing!and EIP was going to use there own manifold, think the only thing he needed to do was rearrange some piping and something with the brakes.

Jabba sport! http://www.jabbasport.com/

365bhp and 300lbt!

wild - but doesn't it take away the v6 'thing'

My mistake, Jabbas kit is not for the MK 4 2.8 V6.

V6 Thing is still there but has a friend[:D]
