Engine bay looks nice mate, as do the wheels!!
I’m wondering about side bars myself. I don’t want to fit them if I can’t use the side jack. I’d be interested in seeing a photo too.

Of course, don’t want to be ripping them off on speed humps.

Hows the build going? I've had to wire one of the cam wires ,secondary coolant sensor so thats all good. got an issue with boost - need to check wiring back to ECU its showing 2 bar all the time regardless of plugged in or not , so thinking either a wiring issue or issue with the deimmo ecu map I bought. Also what have you done about the speedo pickup on gearbox I have no plug etc. Im running body ECU loom of SDI and TDI 105 loom engine side :) thanks in advance Dan

The paintwork is looking good. Good luck with fitting the new front and rear bumpers

hi mate i’m running the sdi loom with no mods apart from re pinning the egr valve signal wire from ecu to the pin for n75

gearbox i’m running 02m gearbox edc15 ecu (mk4 chassis ) use the gearbox for speedo and wheel speed sensors for abs

edc16 (mk5) use wheel speed sensors for speed so nothing to worry about mate

you shouldn’t need to wire anything different should all be the same

quick update , as iv not posted in a while ,

iv fitted the stance+ coilover kit they seem ok for the money i still drive over speed bumps like normal

engine is working ok , not to happy with the gt1856 turbo , seems to be fairly laggy and then has small
but if boost creep over 4300/4400rpm it's not holding boost stable like i'm asking for.

apart from that i'm fairly happy and i will next be sorting the body workImage
