    It cant just be me that everytime i come on the forum i end up spending a few more ££ on mods ive promised myself i'm going to do slowly,

    So far since i bought the car ive fitted new DV, Tip, Hids, LED Fogs/Sides/numberplate, CAI and just bought a Forge Short SHifter and looking to book in for a remap next month.... does it ever stop? will my wallet ever be safe?

    I wanted to go to another meeting which have the same dyno as my mapper has, but I was hindered that day.

    I've been to JD Engineering in the Netherlands, a VAG specialist (more than 20 years afaik). Also see: http://www.speedhunters.com/2012/04/jd-engineering-a-players-affair/

    overrated rollers? 10 minutes of google told me 230/240 MAX as a k03 cant compress any more air to make more power, I mean if it was 241/242 fair enough but yours is claiming 20 bhp more than any tuner is saying a k03 can make? id take it to another RR and see what power you really have.

    Tuners will always state the lowest possible, remember that (otherwise expectations cant be met). And the turbo isnt the only factor in making power ;)

    I dont question the rollers at JD Engineering as they have years of experience and the proof is in the cars/customers.

    I wil lsee what I can provide you, but we're going a bit offtopic here ;)

    Thx man :) Dont know, havent run empirical tests :D But its better as the air gets sucked through the SMIC instead of hitting a "wall" (arch vent). Dont know if it makes a big difference, but al little bits help innit.

    FMIC ftw though
