    Haha! Can't wait to get it mapped! Neat build though :)

    As for internal gate, what power have you had from them? I know you don't use the .8x's but just for comparison.

    412bhp from 1.9bar on a 2ltr stroker 20v max I have seen. EGT's were extremely high tho. >1000'c post turbine!

    In contrast the mk2 Golfs egts post turbine max'd 680'C from its 24psi boost to 8300rpm

    Impressive EGT's for the Golf. I don't want anything higher than 950 really! Look forward to seeing more from this Golf ;)

    Well she's back from her extended holiday over at Bill's tucked up safely in her new garage.

    Its been quite a while but they do say 'good things come to those who wait' - certainly true in this case :D

    After 16 years of ownership and various states of engine tune, braking and suspension set-up I can only describe it now as being 'right'.

    Driving wise it feels totally planted, even through torrential rain on the 70 miles trip home there was no drama just like a mild mannered - very powerful - valver with 8000 revs to play with! and then, if you do want to move on it will - and then some !!

    Hats off and big thanks to Bill, Paul and Tony :clap:
    Gary

    excellent to hear Gary
    I want your car!
    its the epitomy of a nice mk2 valver... with added grunt.
    lovely all round package.. handling is superb, braking to match the power.. and power, which will nuke many a car (when there's enough road to stretch its legs)

    Hope you enjoy it
    :clap:
