    Hi, not sure if it fits up to the be box, the bottom engine mount needs a bit of adjustment, mine is on a 2.0 loom and Ecu running 406 110 software.

    The engine is quite a right fit, the master cylinder sits very close the cam sensor and rubs the wires through. If you use the 2.2 gearbox the subframe needs modifying for the diff to clear, and you will probably need custom shafts. You would also need to sort out something for the hydraulic clutch and cable gearchange.

    Also on the phase 1 parts Ofthe bonnet frame need cutting out to clear the inlet manifold, not sure if this will be the same on later ones.

    At the moment I could really say weather it's worth it as still in the process of getting the mapping sorted. But when done it should be good for over 200hp

    Just watched the 40-80 video. Looks to go pretty well.

    What shafts are you using now then?

    Next step is getting the turbo control and fueling spot on

    Made good progress tonight, there was quite a differnce between the map sensor reading and boost gauge reading, I done a bit of searching and found that the map sensor I was using was only a 2.5 bar sensor and the map was for a 3 bar sensor.

    So that 0.5 bar was the cause of the differnce between the 2 readings. So had a new map made for a vw 4 bar sensor as I already had a sensor. That has made a lot of difference.

    Just need to get the boost control smoothed out now, and it's also virtaully smoke free now.

    Springs tb is doing the mapping, big thanks to Gareth as he found out his email address for me

    Not much progress with the mapping at the minute as I thought it was best to replace the chargecooler pump as the boost pipe after the cooler was getting too hot to touch!! Just finished doing that tonight, and manganed to make the front bumper fit a lot better too.

    Also I've put in a blue carpet and sorted out the drivers door check strap, so no more annoying clunk!

    The plan Saturday is to replace there thermostat housing, gearcables and heat wrap the exhaust from the turbo along to where the gearcables are.

    Finally got around to making a start on building the engine.

    Head has been skimmed, cleaned, lapped valves in, fitted stronger valve springs, painted the head block and inlet manifold. Head is now fitted with arp studs and new head gasket. New water pump fitted and front crank seal.

    Now at the stage where I need to remove the engine from the car so I can start swapping bits
