Nice, this much be loads of fun. I had a PD130 mk4 mapped to just over 180bhp and that felt nippy enough. The torque must be addictive!

Looking forward to the future plans.  :happy2:

Not a lot has happened with the golf recently, mapping couldn't get done due to injector issues, so I replaced faulty injectors and fault was still present, so need to change the loom and recheck injector deviation.

I have purchased a tt rear axle which I intend to clean up, re paint and bolt on. This will make my rear end 30mm wider. And mine is getting pretty rusty, as with a lot of others I've seen!
Been looking at getting either polar fis and a scirocco instrument cluster, which I'm leaning toward atm, or a p3 gauge. Any information or advise with either would be greatly appreciated.
I have done a couple of things though! Made myself a little inlet scoop, Im thinking of using this as a mould for a carbon fibre model.

And I saved my self some money by cleaning my wheels with some proper products, plus some hard work and saved my self needing a refurb, on 2 of them at least.. and got some Bridgestone drive guard tyres, not sure I like them as much as I liked the previous Bridgestone run flats though.

So just going to update this as it's been a while and there's a few new bits.
Engine bay now has a few changes, vwr filter fitted, Bentley filler cap, odyssey pc1100

Also did a few service bits and fitted mk7 clubsport discs with red stuff pads (got given the pads)

Did a 3000 mile road trip around Europe and cooked my brakes round the ring that's the main reason for trying a different brake setup. These are a lot better vented and lighter too.

The front springs are from AST suspension and only drop the front around 15mm, the rear springs are audi TT springs, the ride height and spring rate are a pretty good match, although shocks would improve handling I'd imagine.

I also upgraded the rear brakes to the ones I had off the TT rear axle I bought a a while ago, I think they are similar size to gti rears. This was because I had a siezed standard caliper. Although no pictures of the rears, I will be changing the brake fluid for high temperatures dot 4 soon.
Here's some nurburg pictures

And stelvio pass

We went end of may and the snow hadn't been cleared off the road all the way to the top which was a shame but we had to go that time of year to see Worthersee.
I've also fitted a hard pipe kit as I kept having issues with the standard pipe work.
Fitted high line clocks a while ago in preparation for polar fis, which I've recently fitted along with a multi function steering wheel.
So basically it's still a bad ass sleeper and I still love it.
I'll add some more pictures soon!

Nice trip and pictures.   :congrats:
I believe the Mk7 clubsport discs will have a lot more cooling, from the pictures i see some directional vanes. They make a lot of difference.  :happy2:
