  1. so i was inquiring with a trader though another forum who are offering a discount and they told me that at the end of the month milltek will be producing their last run of their system for mk3 vr's. dont know how true this is gonna fire milltek a Q direct but doesnt sound good
  2. often wondered why n/a tuning is a bit neglected compared to an equivalent bmw engine. when you consider you can get of the shelf carbon inlets and tuned plenums for old e30's, 328's and m3s etc. maybe just cos theyre flat 6 and long mounted youve got more room so it gives you more scope! certainly aint cheap though
  3. so if i join up for premium and i get my discount on vibratechnics mounts who do i buy them from? vibra direct or an authorised retailer?
  4. fiat bravo/brava rad the inlet and outlet on the rad are in the right place for the vr hoses
  5. thinking cos its 2.25" would it be to restrictive for a relatively low boost fi set up?
  6. another Q... is it best to fit the maf pre or post charger? ive seen both done but couldnt find anything definative. if its pre then is it likely i'll have to extend the maf wiring?
  7. thanks for the info. its still something i'll look into for the long term but now as 'item was ended early' itll have to wait ggrr
  8. i had suspected that as most of the builds i'd read were for corrados still be interesting to hear what the bracket mod is as its something i remember seeing before too
  9. also seen i may have to switch to an obd1 throttle body what else would i need to change as mines obd2?
  10. so im looking into going standalone when i rotrex the car. heard good things about DTA and the support for them. ive got some fairly n00b questions though so be patient! im assuming the DTA unit replaces the entire stock ecu? what do i need to change on the engine loom apart from the ecu plugs? what can be removed? im assuming the maf section as the dta uses map instead? and what is a good brand of map sensor? also does anyone make up dta looms for the vr or is it a case of diy? cheers
  11. if you could find out how he modified the bracket that would be a big help. rather do that than mess about with the head. what spec is he running? do you know where he sourced the bracket or did he buy a complete kit?
  12. ive been doing a fair bit of research into fitting a Rotrex as ive found a place that does a basic C30-94 kit for a good price. i'd only need to sort the VR specific parts like the mounting bracket and decide what pulley and injectors etc i wanna run now ive looked at some build threads (seem quite old and thin on the ground) and wonder if some of the early fitting issues were still apparent r if things had changed. my main concern is that a few people have had to grind a bit of the head to allow for clearance. this seems a bit ott for a 'bolt-on' kit. is this still the case? seems its only on
  13. should it happen itll be mk3 and n/a if its not needed i wont run it to save on hassle anyway plans might be a changin if something ive spotted comes off as i hope!
  14. dont have a spare r32 kicking about unfortunately just planning ahead!
  15. yep from what i remember its a piece of tube welded on and the whole pans been powdercoated
  16. aux water pump can be binned cant it? dont know how you go about it though
  17. i think ive still got a tapped sump somewhere should you need one
  18. i abandoned my 1st build as i thought i'd done my bottom end, also was looking at spending what i had on the turbo stuff again on the transmission etc decided i couldnt justify that kind of money on an old banger! second time around just wasnt happy with th quality of some of the kit. i reckon you could easily VRT for the same money as going s/c
  19. yeah thats what i mean! i kno the same goes for turbo'ing in a way but i guess it gives you more ability to control the spending. if you wanna supercharge you have to have the cash in place in one go. where as with a turbo you can buy the bits as they become available
  20. thing i find with chargers is that its pretty much a fixed minimum price to get it going. what i found when collecting bits up for my various excursions into VRT's is that there are places you can save money if you know where to look, and not just by skimping on quality. the 1st lot of stuff i collected didnt cost much over 1k and it wouldve been a solid kit good for 400 ponies. i got a few brgains through the drifting forums as they dont seem to carry the VW forum tax! just keep your eyes peeled for bargains and remember you can do things in stages. like 1st running it on stock injectors and
  21. youll end up spending the same again replacing all the bits that wont fit and buying the bits they dont supply
  22. looking at putting one in instead of the stock mk3 VR fabric one are they easy enough to fit?
