Got my 220bhp and 158lbft

Not bad with a cat welded in!

Advised to change Gruppe M when I get the cams otherwise Paul said it's just the cat that's restrictive. Will be staying on for ins reasons and can live with the minimal losses.

It's a 400CEL sports cat so pretty restrictive over the 200CEL ones. When I next get insured it will be with a specialist modified car insurer so will enquire about a decat as MOT isn't a problem.

Car is transformed, buckets of torque off roundabouts now and pulls like a train. Saving for next year as I've got my Grinspeed and TDi quotes ready for my 250 / 260bhp build

Where have you got the cat welded into the Milltek? I assume it passes the MOT fine.

It's underneath the driver's seat where the silencer is on the Tegiwa / OEM. It will pass MOT regardless (perks of knowing a few mechanics), it's just fitted for insurance requirements.

Busy day attempting to skive off work, doesn't work as much when you're the boss and stuff doesn't get done xD

Door sill decals came so removed them, polished and attached the decals.

Mugen shifter also arrived, didn't escape customs but only came to £175 inc VAT, duty and parcelforce rip off fees.

Need some advice, would I see much of a gain if I fitted the FD2 TB and RRC now instead of waiting until the cams next year?

I can fit myself so only cost would be £80 or something for an hour on TDi's dyno.

Thought as much, car pulls lovely now. Just feels tired after 7-7.5k. Not that I'm constantly revving that high constantly but heard the RRC wakes it up at the top.

Scoop ordered from FS section ready for the Teg / Mugen intake swap.
Should be nearly cost neutral once I sell the Gruppe M.

400 cell cat getting swapped to 200 cell at powerflow and a removable decat pipe will also be fabbed so I can double map for track days.

Will keep me going until cams then.

Can I ask why the teg or mugen would make better gains than the gruppe m? Ram air, k&n etc. Can't see there being much in it tbh.

Spoke to Paul about it after the dyno run and asked for a roadmap for ideas as I'm looking at stage 1 TDi cams next year (damn mortgage)!

Gruppe M is perfectly fine but once you start looking at cams it becomes a bottleneck.

It's my daily so want to avoid a proper CAI as I don't want to be taking the bumper off every 6 months so a Teg / Mugen closed box is best for me.

Won't be swapping the cat now as he said it won't make much difference but will still keep the detachable decat for track days.
