    I'm not quit sure on what engine work he done to it but 350hp is a lot of power on standard internals, they normally spit after 290-300 so I would assume he wouldn't be that stupid ect, anyway cupra-red are you guna be keeping this cupra as you have had most of the high spec ones going, send me your number via private message bud , aint seen you in a long while lol.

    new updates

    Right more progress since last time I saw the car so well happy as its one gearbox mount to make as I'm running 02m instead of out 02j I believe , was guna buy one off dutchbuild but there asking way to much for mount so my fabricator is making one for mee, cheers buddy.

    Right went to see car on saturday and couldn't believe how much work was undertaken in the last couple of weeksso well chuffed to say the least, looked at the back end inside the car and its all been seem/stitch welded for strength. Rear floor been boxed and plated for extra strength ect , looks like a nice clean conversion.

    Things todo

    Refit engine /box
    Turbo
    Manifold
    External wastegateand screamer
    Mock up a exhaust
    Paint
    Fit seats
    Order one seemless bar from customcages for rear section
    Change brakes as 1.4 will not stop me
    Extend steering colum
    Vertical hydraulic handbrake
    Pedal box with bias control
    Redo old handbrake for mot and road use
    Source a pair of wrc wings
    Wax oil fully underneath then seal

    As you can see its still a lot todo so not guna rush as ill expect problems ect its taken this long now would be a shame to rush, as soon as I get car back I'm guna garage for few months to get my funds back lol as I'm saving for house too , ill have pics of both car and engine build tonight , enjoy .

    Have a Leon prepped for the track [running GT28].

    Considering even larger turbo/4wd conversion :)

    If doing this would probably take opportunity to do other improvements such as seam welding at same time.

    Be really good to see photos of yours in progress and once finished.

    Is your mate able to jig car up etc. to ensure 100% straight as it would be from a factory following all conversion work and welding?

    mega build - nice to see it all coming together. with it being a halidex system will the rears only kick in when the front looses traction? or is there a way to overcome this? Was looking at an S3 untill i found they wern't locked into 4wd
