393 bhp...jeebus! Love that you've kept the looks reasonably standard. I'd love to do a 1.0, keep the back end standard - complete with 1.0 badge - with Audi stylee front end & TT/S3 engine up front. It's the reverse mullet car - party up front, business in the back :lol:

Haha yeaaa that'd be different lol, i did actually buy a 1.0 badge for it at one point :D Ive always still tred to keep it reasonable looking and still have some nice comfortish features lol, ive always avoided totally stripping out and going extreme race with it :)

Had a good weekend at UD, here are a few pictures that I took of mine, only taken i Iphone so the quality is pretty poo, it really doesn't get on well with this indoor lighting!

Only got the car back on the Friday finally with a fixed and furthermore uprated driveshaft after snapping one at santa pod last october!!

Here are a few pictures from GTI International and a video of one of my runs down the strip, I went on the sunday and only got 3 runs in first thing on the strip which was damp as you can see in the video. I was hoping to get a good few dry runs in in the afternoon but the Seat Leon crash put an end to that :s As such the best I managed on my standard road tyres was a 13.8 quarter and a 5.6 0-60 time. Was hoping to be touching more 13.2's with a decent dry start! Anyway....

I know needs to be done was gutted when they said they just couldnt get that extra 7bhp out of her when she was last mapped :( uprated intake is the way forward i think!

on behalf of a friend: is there any reason why psi didn't use the original BAM engine mounts

Hello sorry for the late reply not been on for a while! Yes the engine is APY not a BAM although I'm unsure of how much the mounts differ between them? but yes I believe the driver side APY mount was not initially used due to the positioning on the chassis ...

Aquamist HFS-3 water injection system and Mocal oil cooler now fitted. Has helped massively with the high oil temps I was seeing and got some lovely cool intake temps now! Lowered about another 5mm on the front as well sits much nicer now I think. Few pictures from Ultimate Dubs below.
