  1. looks like its the same questions again . so to save them having to be asked i thought id put this brief email together that should answer most of your questions. As you may or may not know , there are different ways to turbo a vr6 . ill list the main parts, its for you to decide were you purchase them and who fits them. remember its normally the fitment that screws up the running once its all together. ill ammend it when i have time ( and correct my spelling mistakes ) people can add to it if they wish any comments made that drag any company down will be removed . turbo manifold - spa ,
  2. remember that if you choose a maf housing , your best to buy it from the same place that will supply the software . else it may well cause problems when you come to run it UM / The Phirm , sell a package that works very well. again the choice is yours

    i dont hardly post on here anymore , but i will say this .. IVE had nothing but help from UM UK, and would use there products time and time again. both software and hardware. my vr6 turbo, seat cupra and audi s4 all ran UM Software . and were 100 % better than what arrvied with them . my 2 freinds that had vr6's ran a UM ecu and gained both bhp / trq and general driveability. i have logs to back this up . infact the majority of turbo / supercharged cars on here run UM software or hardware in my varied experiance , when people dont get the results they want , they are all but to happy to blam

  17. im looking at the date as we speak , but i think it clashed with another meal i have
  18. I ran a vr6 turbo on track with non work8ng abs for a few years. I never had any problems. Back end would lock and try to come round , but u could feel this and react . Intact it was a better car than many fitted with working abs. Your bushes must have been fubared, to make this abppen . I imagine evrytime u went over a drain cover u could feel it.
  19. ecu would be the same , airbox is however different , make sure you get the aircon box for inside the car, and the control panel with cables.
  20. united motorsport do them , i can recommend them.. what is the car in question ?
