Upgraded to heated black SE leather with electric lumber and map nets. They are not the sport seats I was waiting for but I’ll probably change just the fronts to MK1 TT ones when someone creates the brackets. For now though I’m happy.
I’ve been gradually winding the boost controller up today and it’s now running 5.8psi on boost. It is now rather quick to be honest. Compatible with the TDI90 I had with 160hp. I doubt it’s making that much, it’s just that there’s less turbo lag so it gets going sooner than the TDI.
What is now very noticeable is the bang and chirping when I lift off the throttle from the pressurised air with no route of escape other than back down the turbo. Almost all modern turbo cars have a recirculation valve for this unspent pressure but with this being a bit of a Frankenstein system it doesn’t. I’ve just ordered a blow of valve (dump valve) to try to limit this effect.
