Cheers guys. They were genuinely surprised with the capabilities on the day.

I would suggest Ecotune to anyone btw. Great bunch of guys and very very knowledgable! On that day alone there was about 6 TFSI cars that had been worked on/were being worked on or waiting for work!

It's nice to see a higher mile car getting this sort of thing done. Making me want to spend some money   :laugh:

It was never meant to be this way haha!

It was cheap to buy and I have been lucky with the prices of parts. The bodywork is generally in good condition and it has fsh!

That is pure filth, but it is a good picture.  :happy2:

Every car gets dirty this time of year, nothing wrong with that.

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

So it passed its MOT on Saturday. Winner:



I also fixed the brake light issues (finally) by replacing the clutch hall sensor on the master cylinder. No more blown fuses.

And 2 pish photos of the car clean for about an hour, before I drove up to Aviemore for the weekend.

You will need either a cnc machine or to buy one from say Turbo Technics. Then 3 bar map sensor / s3 injectors plus usual stage 2+ add ons and possibly uprated clutch for @360 bhp / lb ft after remap.

Iv done all the stage 2+ upgrades except the turbo. I have a doner turbo ready to build into a hybrid unit. I was just wondering if it’s possible to build yourself.

Cheers

Is basically the guts of a k04 in a k03 housing, so you would need to do some machining. Turbo Technics do new ones outright for @750 with billet compressor and better bearing. I dare say you can find someone to do the work but the saving won't be huge.  IIRC Rtec do drive-in conversion packages with remap.

The car was sold on Christmas Eve 2016.

I ended up buying a large amount of parts from it for an edition 30 I bought in 2018 - the owner I bought the parts from (3 after me) was breaking it as he thought he would make more money than selling it whole.

Since then I have had 2 Edition 30s (both have threads on here) and have just finished ‘restoring’ my 5th mk5 gti - a 2005 1 owner from new GTI, which will be for sale in a couple of weeks.
