the engine mods are only basic for the moment, it made 155bhp and 230lbs.ft before the remap just with some of my fueling mods ;) with the remap it should have around the same bhp figures over a much wider band and more torque, trying to sort out a rolling road session at the moment,

mods to come, Vagworld turbo conversion, much larger injectors, custom front mount, 6 paddle clutch with single mass ++

i went down to santapod last sunday for RWYB which was a fail lol, got up nice and early to meet fred (artofspeed.net) to upload my santapod file :twisted: , got to santapod for 9, waited till one till they had dried the track (hmmm not realy dry :lol: ) then on my 1st run as i camr to the 1/8 mile a boost pipe went pop lol game over for that day, only managed a 16.7, but at least i was able to drive home unlike the honda s2000 owner who demonstrated how wet it was by geting sideways down the quater mile and puting it in the wall backwards :shock: :shock:

i went up there with ben in his ibiza tdi which has been prepaired by ben and me (vagworld) and maped by artofspeed, he managed a 14.6, we was hoping for a quicker time but due to the weather we couldnt get a good launch, i only managed a 14.9 in it :roll: :roll:

any way heres the pics, tt comps have been sold, the 15's in the pics have been sold, im running on steelies which are going to someone tomorrow and i should be fitting the lm reps, 18x8.5 all round and im going to fit 215/40s and play with some spacers, vids will follow shortly as you tube takes forever!!

oh hang on, i thought this was a PD130!!

the vr6/g60 clutch i had in mine took a hell of a lot of abuse with no ill effects(4x4 octavia estate running 200bhp for a couple years then ~280bhp), infact i blew a bearing out of the casing on a launch before the clutch even slipped!

the vr/g60 combo is a good option, i have fitted a few, i fitted a paddle clutch to the ibiza in the vid, i quite like it, i no the vr/g60 is very good on the 20vts but not sure how it will stand up on the tdi, it will have to be able to handle 300+ lbs,ft before NOS, it costs abit more then for the paddle clutch but it will be peace of mind

i have fitted the lm reps, 18x8.5s all round with 215/40/18s falkens, 15mm spacers on the rear, ill stick some pics up when i can be botherd to go out in the cold lol

lm 's are on, 18x8.5 all round with 215/40/18 falkens, ive also got a set of 235/45/18 contisport 3s for 1/4 mile, i love way they sit with the 15mm spacers at the back, your cant realy see the stance in the pic ( crappy ipone), when i set the ride hieght i had a full tank, now its nearly empty so the arse is in the air lol
im going to try to go amd rollng road day to see what shes pushing, took the turbo off today to change the cold side to a clip on type (long story) gave it a quick inspection and its better then i thought, no play what so ever, vnt is completly free, and no wear on the turbine, considering my driving style ( and bens who had the turbo before me) plus me keep bugging fred to run a very agresive map lol, should be going emp on weds to get a turbo - intercooler pipe made up

il get some pics up of the wheels and pipes, and my new turbo when i get it back from having a laser cut cad designed adapter made up from voodoo motorsport

right, this is the turbo to intercooler pipe eldin from www.empperformance.com had made up for me, i need this pipe made up for two reasons

1: i have fitted the pd130 turbo and the standard pipe work does not match up
2: if you have seen the standard turbo to intercooler pipes on the tdi's and 20vt's you will no how much of a restiction it is, he has made it so its as free flowing as it can be and does not touch the wheel on full lock or interfere with the drive shaft

it has made a drivable difference to my car and boost is alot smoother cant wait to get her on a rolling road!!!
