    Hey Nero, Daily driving, not much. When I get the GT28R inside and start pulling some G-forces around corners, yes...

    I don't know driving in another way which isn't risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other's.

    Paid a visit to the Goldie for a look at the install over the weekend. Things are looking good thanks to the awesome crew at Euro Tune. Glen and his boys are really thorough and meticulous. Some images below from iphone, sorry there not that clear.






    Out with the old KO3!!




    ...and in with the new...








    ...another familiar car on the hoist next door!!! So this is what he's been up to!!!

    Looking good Alan. I guess if you'll be looking at around 250-260kw at the wheels when this is all back together? These are the real world figures that seem to have been shown previously from a Stage 3 APR kit on a Mk6 GTI.

    I know that the turbo and manifold can be installed without having to remove the engine, although it is tight, so are you getting other stuff done at the same time?

    Is that Sam's car on the other hoist (sam online?).

    I'm guessing the same Lucas, I've got a Dyno happening Saturday, will be interesting to see the results. I know of a Mk6 GTI that got 262.574kw on a Dynapack Dyno at Harding performance some weeks back, so you'd have to assume it'll be somewhere near that.

    I did get a few things installed pics below and you don't miss much that is Sam_onlines GTI. By the way couldn't use the Magma wrap on the down pipe as it there wasn't much to wrap. May use it somewhere else. Attached a photo to show you.

    ^ yeah theres only 10cm to wrap....probably not worth bothering really. You could always wrap the cast bit thats already bolted onto the turbo flange (its sort of become 1/2 of your down pipe now) but not sure if its worth the hassle.

    Best of luck getting it all back together for Saturday. Hope it runs well and puts down similar power figures.

    I like the Vision wheels. Great alternative to the other VW wheels out there. Nice ride!
