i would like to say a big thanks to the boys at tdi north,lou,ben,neil & paul :) for all there hard work & patience in what i would call a whirlwind 12 months !! i have left it just over a month to write this as i have had the whiole polybush kit fitted & went back to get engine mount inserts & boost by gear done & all i can say now it feels like a total different animal :D

where do i start !! well i have gone from this beast !


to this insane beast !!!


i have literally gone from a rotrex supercharger to the insane turbo conversion which i have now !! that fatefull day arriving at tdi north to get my intercooler upgrade for the rotrex turned into a dissapointing day !! not with the rotrex or the upgrade to the intercooler to gain more powerz :) it was a ride out in uncle festers car the bitch :( if most of you have seen the video you will know from that ride out my head was turned & i had to have the turbo :) so in a short space of time & constant emails & ribbing from uncle fester it was time for the conversion & by the time it was done all i can say as this thing is bloody mental & any of the passengers who have been in her will tell you she is quick !! the rotrex was very quick but this thing is at a whole new level !! & ot of cars around where i live dont like me know for some reason & keep away i wonder why :D so a big thanks again to all the boys at tdi for making me a happy chappy & thanks too to uncle fester for constantly pestering emailing, texting & ringing me he knows what i mean :D

Looking forward to a run across to the N.E to see the beast.

Whats it like on fuel when you not thrashing it can you make over 30mpg? I want my work to send me away for 6months so I can have all the monies for this set up plus a few Mugen bits. ;-) Loving your car by the way.

As a passenger I can vouch it goes like a rocket, still not as quick as a NA car with a decent bonnet though, but still quite impressive.

Cheers buddy :) Yes easy i have done so far 215 mile & still got well over half a tank left !! That's giving it a bit from tdi & steady driving ;)
