There's currently a VW Golf 1.8T (1999) for sale on eBay here http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2498132430

Considering he is advertising it as easily over 220bhp (without even having it on a rolling road!!) I emailed him and told him that would not be the case as its a Non DBW with a K03 turbo.

I sent him this "Being a 1999 model so with a Non DBW and K03 turbo (unless you swapped it for a K03sport), how can it possibly be running over 195bhp? To hit 220plus you will need at least a K03sport turbo. Gary"

He replied "Hi there gary! There is no such turbo as a ko3 sport there is only a k04 turbo ??? Also i have said i have not had this rolling roaded!! chipping this vehicle takes the car to between 200-210 bhp alon with standard turbo and also taking the cat off a turbo car, filter and exhaust etc will give 10bhp!! it has been tested again my mates cossie which is standard 230bhp and it keeps up so i suggest who told u about thsi 195bhp lark is talking ballmale chickens! Cheers Paul"

Some people eh?? lol [:D]

My car is a 99 AGU Non DBW and has the mods listed in my sig below and is running 214 bhp at the flywheel and 188 at the wheels. I assume you are talking about flywheel power when you say it is not possible to run over 195bhp. If you are talking about power at the wheels then my bad.

When I had my car remapped Mike said it was one of if not the highest figures he has had out of a non-dbw.

Well the catback and CAI will not give you much more power, if anything at all so you have pretty much had 215bhp out of a Jabba remap alone?

Have you had it on an independant Rolling Road?

Jabba's Rollers are known to give slightly optimistic figures.

No I haven't as of yet. I'm just going by the figures given to me by Jabbasport. But how optimistic can these figures be?

He emailed me back again with loads of abuse (like im bothered!!) telling me that his K03 hits 14psi (WOW!!) and this will allow him to hit his claim of 220bhp - lol [:D]

14 psi?? where in the revs........ if its at 6000rpm (where you see peak power usually) then its way over 220 bhp...... if its mid range then SO F*CK thats not even good!

Either way its a shed!, plus only one pic of it.....who is gonna pay that for a car you cant even see!
