    Sorry for not reading the thread more carefully prior writing a note:)

    First of all - good luck with the engine !!! I see you had some adventures with it lately.
    Your red Golf is sweet!! a very rare candy in Israel (where I am from), you hardly can see one of them alive here.

    If you are already "forged" and paying for a custom tune , why you ain't going straight for TTE install?

    Aha its been a tough ownership

    And well the engine is tehnically togeher now so just awaiing it to be fitted in the car

    Tte will be the end result but as anything for a tfsi seems to cost alot it will take me a few months as i need to accquire some stage 2+ hardware aswell.

    And the golf is feeling neglicted as that was meant to be the money pit and not the leon lol

    Bit of an update

    The leon is now back up and running!
    Just needs the bumper to go back on and the first 200mile wear in by the mechanic and the oil changed and she will be back with me after a enduring 3month wait!

    Treated her to a powerflex yellow insert for when i get her back

    That will certainly make a difference.!
    I’m running Eibach sportline lowering springs, bilstein shocks all round and bilstein top mounts on the shocks. The difference in handling is unbelievable compared to stock! huge improvement in the corners, and all for very little change in the ride comfort.

    Oh fair enough lol

    Aha yeah , the focus 1.0 ecoboost is surprising shameful to say i was impressed with it.

    Thanks mate its gone well for the last 910 mile just a mere 90 left before i can start to slowly increase the maps before its back on map 5, r tech is quality for putting 5 switchable maps on
