I recently changed over the spring inside my Forge diverter valve to see if it eliminated the flutter noise when I let off the throttle while on boost. While it didn't really solve that issue, it did have some other positive effects. Firstly, the car pulls so much better now from low RPM and seems to have a much better torque curve. Second boost is in economy, at first I thought it was a one off but I'm now able to hit 40mpg or higher when sat on the motorway at 65mph. More work needs to be done to see what exactly is behind this but I'm mega pleased as it's so much nicer to drive the car and it was simple a 10 minute job to do. No more being lazy for me!
Going to do a cambelt change and oil service very soon as I'm just about to hit 50,000 miles and 5 years old, so doing it now as not taking the risks with a tuned engine. Got a 50% discount code with GSF over the weekend so bought a new cambelt kit, water pump, oil and oil filter and planning on getting the new guy who moved into the workshop to help me out. All I'll say about him is he runs in the VWDRC in a 800bhp car. He knows his stuff and is proper cool, so likely will be using his knowledge and skills over the coming months and years for my own plans.
Speaking of which, ages ago I mentioned I bought a HPA Motorsport inlet manifold but never actually took a picture of it. And an update isn't any good if it's just text, so here it is (nearly 6 months later after being dug out of a pile or parts):
