    That sounds about right. I want to change the rear hubs to the Polo version to ditch the taper bearings so could have a look then

    That's a good idea - we were looking at getting some made a few years ago but were unable to get some accurate drawings. I've just seen a set on ebay for about £110 which seems a bit high for what is essentially some plate and high tensile bolts.

    But they're the only options available right now. Great Plates in the US did them previously.

    I've had the car back for a couple of days. Was rollered at 262 bhp on very honest rollers at 16 psi of boost and 26 degrees of timing. The engine and turbo has a lot more to give but was all tuned conservatively due to the injectors not supplying enough fuel and possibly at least one of them having a poor spray pattern which I need to get tested. The clutch is nowhere near as aggressive as I thought it would be. So the main objective of getting the car running well is complete and now showing up other areas that need improving. The car feels great to drive well and is fairly nippy but could easily handle more power through the drivetrain and chassis. I'm still aiming for 300 bhp after bigger injectors which should be rapid and make better use of the long ratios on the diesel gearbox that is fitted

    Thanks Stu. I was getting a bit tired of the limitations of the agu ecu and lack of tuners wanting to touch it. That and the possibility of a change of turbo and other mods in the future that would just be easier to run off a stand alone ecu like the Emerald. I've also got the advantage of having switchable maps which is nice. Currently have a low boost, actuator pressure map at 175 bhp which is silky smooth and good on fuel, a full power 262 bhp map and another full power map but with pops and bangs for when I'm going to the in-laws.

    Nice one Oli,

    Glad you explained the reason for the low power, they looked quite proud of 260 on facebook and I was thinking it was a little low for a K04 let alone a K04 on a modified engine

    I know what you mean but I trust the guys and their work. It was making more power but was wound back to protect the engine. I'm of a mind to get these injectors tested and run them for now and look along the lines of a K04 hybrid at the same time as larger injectors, then back for mapping. There's still work to do to the rest of the car and I should probably stop the spending for now

    Not so long ago you could buy new injectors for a vxr from vauxhall for quite cheap money, they are supposed to be a good upgrade and direct fit
