Battery box and number plate looks sick mate. Though you love carbon just a bit too much to be healthy.

Would it not just be lighter to use the sticker number plates without any backing? scratch

I was thinking that aswell... I do think those ones are cool though!

Bit of a random 1 but what fuel pump are you running? Standard? I'm unsure of what pump to run on mine and how much the standard 1 can take?

I'm using the stock pump and the accumulator

The engine swap guide I followed said it will be adequate to about 225 bhp

If it gets fuel cut then I'll upgrade it and pop a swirl pot at the bay end too, we will see.

yea man, id imagine youd get away with the stock rocco pump for the time being then upgrade it if the map requires it. Lots of people bin the accumulator, but its worth keeping it if you plan to take it on track or 'b road' hillclimbing. obviously a proper bay mounted swirl pot would be worth it instead.

cheers man, i lovw them on their own, but i was thinking of painting them silver as they look too black on the car.

but they definatley need some spacers to sit properly, the rears just arnt wide enough and look a bit lost

but this photo does look sick, although i massivley need the bonnet painted ;-)

safety did you manage to sort a lsd for it as yet? I bet thats a handful in a straight line on full boost but torque steer is major fun, can you remember bombing back from y2sk8 in my Polo GT all those years ago?

Your both effectively ditching the k-jet set up for digifant. Digifants dont need the accumilator Turbo'd Mk1 G60. - Page 30 51732


TH's look awesome Turbo'd Mk1 G60. - Page 30 680462

Thats 2 mk1's on here with them now so i've ruled them out as dailys for mine Turbo'd Mk1 G60. - Page 30 11737

Its needed for starting purposes mate. Keeps the pressure to metering heads on k-jet cars. They wont start otherwise.

Next time you come accross a digifant mk2 golf gti, you'll notice the accumilator is missing from the fuel pump assembly Turbo'd Mk1 G60. - Page 30 651561

well i spose thats down to taste. i like a bit of poke, but i notice you tend to go flush. different strokes for diffrent folks i guess.

What would you replace the THs with dude? IMO, nothing suits what the car has been built for more than those...unless you're getting centrelocks.
