Iíd be more than happy with that, even less to stay 100% reliable. 225-250?

Just drive it sensibly, well within its limits. I've got a 26psi tune that I hardly
ever hit. Sure, it's nice to have that reserve of boost/power, just don't use
it very often and it'll go for a long time.

I tend to not be sensible. When I can beat the snot out of my alh and still get 40plus mpg... HAPPINESS. And thatís prob only 130 horse. I canít wait to get this together!!!

Lol, okaaaay. Well I drive like a cabby, having been one for too many miles.
That means quick, but I roll into the turbo, I don't stress the drivetrain by
burning rubber. I don't race light to light, I'm ez on the brakes.

You can use the power, just be aware that you can tear the car apart if you
beat on the machinery. Get bigger brakes all round and make sure your
tires and suspension are really good. Get an LSD. And then learn how to
drive smoooooth. Herky jerky is what kills cars IMO.

I’ve learned to roll the throttle on my tdis and as I’m getting older, but to be honest I have a short circuit for stupidity. Just so happens there’s a lot of it on the road today!!!! So I can’t honestly say I “behave”. Instant karma last year when I mashed the throttle and literally made the turbo explode. Have bigger fronts, and working on an lsd.

Well you just can't fix stupid. Give them a wide berth and don't get upset.
They're stupid, it's not your fault.

Big rear brakes really help balance the braking, much better handling IMO.
You can overpower the platform, it's not really a sports car. The quote I love in the "What is Handling" thread is "driving a slow car fast". Now that IS a lot of fun, but be judicious about it. Learn the limits, our little diesels can put out more torque and hp than MkIVs were designed for.

If you can believe that I have at least 1 rear caliper hanging up (never heard of that on a vw lol) so if doing calipers, I’ll prob look to upgrade.

I just donít understand why so many people upgrade their turboís , nozzles, 26 psi + tune,along with lsd, and drive like a old fart. Whatís the point, am I missing something. I thought the reason we upgrade, is to enjoy, surprise a few people along the way, do some spirited driving, and maybe some track days as well.

Easy to spot a granny driver vs an aggressive one, just crack open hose at intercooler and if you see a lot of oil lingering there, that's the granny D, and if you see it clean and no oil that's the aggressive one.
