Uprated MAF

Big intercooler - it's either Snabb or DO88 and associated pipes
Custom air intake and a big cone filter thingy
Hybrid turbo
Uprated fuel pump
Had a couple of ECU tunes by the same person
Newly refurbished 18 inch Eudora alloys on Michelin Pilot Sport 4s

Also had a lot of rectification work - new DIM, new CEM, ABS module (but put the old one back in as that wasn't the issue), timing belt and pump, new wishbones, new drop links, rear tie rod things, brake discs and pads, handbrake cable and shoes, chucked the aftermarket stereo and put in a HU650, new alarm, new horn, new top mount struts. It also had preventative maintenance done whilst the gearbox and engine were out. Seals on various things really. Speed limiter has been removed too.

It's very quick but will see what the run shows. I had asked for a usable 350 BHP but the guy that worked on it said it is probably doing more than that.

Very happy with it as it is usable on a day to day basis, quite practical, fast and I am averaging 28.5 miles per gallon. I get 32 on a long run but I do drive it quickly.
Hi Alan
Hi you have had a lot done to your car, is it a T5,
With the turbo and new map
What boost pressure is it running now, but also should be a lot higher flow,
What has been done to the turbo ?
Thanks Dave

Default Koni sport yellows front struts

Today I have finished fitting the Koni sport yellows front struts inserts,
I already have koni rears fitted, eibach springs, the springs I have had fitted for 3 years,
I have only gone down the road with the car , I have set the adjustment to 1 turn from soft, it will do 2.5 turns, the car now is more level going round corners/roundabouts and more positive steering, better over bumps and potholes , I will play with the settings, my old shocks had no gas left in them
and I think was the original from new, my D5 has only done 84k miles but is a 2002,
I will see how it feels over the next few days,
