You're pretty much bang on with that list Tommy, as Alex has already said, you'll need the diff.
I'd also suggest a GFB DV+. Mines just eaten two rev g DV's in two weeks  :scared:

I already have a forge DV which I will overhaul when fitting the boost pipes.

Cheers. The bodwork needs sorting but thats next on the list.

The mounts are Black Forest Industries from the US. I know Garage Midnight are the UK distributor for them but I got these shipped from the US along with a few other bits to keep shipping costs and import duty down. Shipping + import duty was around £80-90 but bare in mind that was for other items aswell, therefore additional weight = higher shipping cost + import duty. I buy quite alot of the VWvortex forum as most of the best parts for tfsi's are made in the US. Its were i picked up the 2nd hand I.E. valve cover and other bits.

I could if I had fitted it yet. Ive been waiting to find a good fabricator around the North West to fit it along with the boost pipes. I only found one last Saturday but I need to wait until all my parts come from the US so it can be measured up accurately. Check out this guys build thread as he has the exact same setup that I am going to be running: http://www.mk5golfgti.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,102247.0.html. Hes not updated it for a while though so I am not sure how well it performs. Its basically a wellycooler but with a better quality intercooler core.

it'll probably coat around £45 for customs as I recall buying a set of Deka 630 cc injectors for my tt and they stung me  :signLOL: swore I would never buy from the US again  :doh: They do do the best stuff n all  :sad1: barstuards  :fighting: :sick: I'm on vw vortex to and have noticed quality bits but sadly I'm not going to be buying from the US again. But thanks for the reply  :drinking:

Don't get me wrong, its a f*****g rip off but it depends on how much you buy the parts for in the first place. They cheaper the parts the more margin you have when been stung by charges. Also you can risk it and claim the parcel contents is worth less so you pay less import duty but sometimes that might come back to bite you in the ass.

I was thinking that too but all depends on the seller and if they say the items cheaper than the actual price.
Also they can open the parcel at the customs depot so it is a gamble too.

Small update, been collecting parts for a while now ready for the big build to start. My rooms starting to look more like a garage. This is minus the CDL engine, clutch, and parts been shipped from the US.








Ive sent my 19" BBS speedlines off for stripping before I can split them and get them refurbed as the previous owner had painted over the bolts so I can't remove them without damaging the threads. Also have a set of S3 front alloy hubs and passat rear alloy hubs that are getting sand blasted and powdercoated ready for new bearings.

Oh and this happened, I accidentally bought this. Ive decided to scrap the TTE420 and go big turbo. Looking at getting a gtx2871r first off and then upgrading to a gtx3071r when I can afford forged internals.  :driver:

I know. I'm a secret horde really. I'm looking at a Quaife LSD and arp bolts. Got a Sachs clutch kit with smf to go in along with steel shifter forks and upgraded bearings so putting the power done should be sorted.
