    Weakest internal???

    Do what you have to do mate, set your goal high enough and fight till you get there ! Power is addictive and you soon get used to it hence spending money once, right is the way to go ! Get the bigger nozzles you can afford, the newest turbo you can find and fit in there and spend a good chunk of...

    The fun is in the modding, when a car works well after you finished modding it you kinda get bored and look for the next project in line to work on ! Sometimes the next project comes before you get rid of the previous and you end up with 2 Project cars, then 3 and so on ! As you grow older you...

    Weakest internal???

    Don’t we all start this way ? It doesn’t make financial sense to modify a engine built with economy in mind but we all like to tart up our cars with go fast bits even if they add zero benefits to the whole recipe ! Making a car cheap, fast and reliable is a bit of a dark art in this day and age...

    B5.5 Power Upgrade!!

    Best to find a bv43a turbo and to change the chra from it into the bv43 off the pd housings…better trim, better spool and you get a billet compressor wheel with extended tip technology and 1 extra blade compared to the pd turbo !

    B5.5 Power Upgrade!!

    You need bv43 off the 170 Bhp Audi A4/a6 with the BRD engine, it has a vacuum controlled actuator with a position sensor which you don’t use ! Slight work to stretch the outlet hose to go onto the turbo spout but that’s easy to do…

    A cornucopia of bag things AHU related

    If you’re stuck for an injector puller then go to your local scrappy and find a injector pipe that fits on your injector(take a spare out and try) and weld it to a slide hammer. I have an inexpensive sliding hammer that costs about a tenner on Amazon, it’s meant for Bosch/Lucas tdi injectors…...

    I would stop pissing in the wind and just get an engine swap to a 1.9 tdi, AHU, ALE or AFN/ALH if you can with the 5 speed 02M gearbox, you will need a few mounts and a mk3 donor wiring loom but it will be so worth it in the long run ! That kit while it’s huge for yesterday standards it’s a...
