    Yup, seems like a plan.
    TBH the oil cooler will be of more use to me on the track for keeping things cool.

    With 23 degrees ambient it was 206 g/s.
    On a cold damp day with less fuel dump I'd expect this to go up a bit, but not too sure by how much.
    I'm more going for torque (acceleration) than BHP (head line figures/top end).

    Does anyone remember how to extrapolate torque figures with VAG com?

    Who's doing the mapping Willie? Had a custom map on my Ibiza Cupra, and it was miles better than any of the 3 Ibiza cupras my mates had (even a full stage2 with FMIC etc!)

    Always said I'd prefer that to a generic map!

    Dave Manson from Aberdeensire.

    Strongly recommend him and his services, cheaper than any other map supplier worth using and a hope to prove this against some BT MK1 Leons

    Track car prepping marching on

    That's me just ordered Ferodo DS3000's, 13 row Mocal oil cooler and Competition spec Millers oil.

    Got the pads and oil from a local Motorsport company, www.clarkemotorsport.net, the oil cooler from www.thinkautomotive.co.uk. got very good prices on these. Just need to order rubber mounts for the oil cooler and hoses when I decide on the placement of this.
    Neither will be a problem, I have a neighbour who makes hoses :)

    Track cars taking shape now.

    Once I order the roll cage, seats and harnesses it'll feel like the real deal

    New shiny Helmet

    New helmet AHOY!!!

    After 2 years of borrowing my mates one he's wanting it back.
    It is a Sparco ES which is the club man class of helmet with a Blue Kite mark.
    These are very restricted in there allowance on track days. Eventually I might end up racing so need to cover as much bases as possible.
    So red kite marks are the way forward

    New race spec oil and DS3000 pads

    [​IMG]

    Also got the Superpro DBM front bush the other day.
    I removed the one out of the spare DBM I had and fitted this one.
    I'll be fitting this to the car tonight with the Track Density bush from INA/034 Motorsport.
    I'm expecting some pretty bad vibrations but we'll see
