  1. Hello all! It’s been a minute since I’ve posted on here.. ended up buying an s3 that’s been keeping me on my toes so not had a lot of funds to put into the turbo build. Finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel the golf is booked in at RK engineering in St Agnes (local VW specialist ) to have the ECU swapped over and turbo mapped in early June. ended up going with a Borgwarner s363 turbo looking to make around 500hp. Specs are VR6 2.8 12v AAA R32 Turbo Rods Schimmel 263 cams Borgwarner S363 Sachs Performance Clutch Fabless Hydraulic Clutch kit R32 Gearbox (4th gear support) Forg

  5. Hi guys , First post in a year because I’ve been too busy enjoying my VR6! But I’ve decided to sell my supercharger and finally go the turbo route, something I’ve been wanting to do since I had it rebuilt last year, I was hoping to get some advice on what turbo setup I’d need to hit around 500-600hp mark to suit the build I’ve got. specs are as follows; 9:1 compression Schimmel 263’s Forged Bottom end ARP all round V5 gearbox Stock vr6 clutch (replacing) I’ve been using the stock mk2 ecu but in the process of ordering an emu black. Any help would would be greatly appreciated,

  8. Okay that's a great help thanks Gaz [emoji1360]
  9. Hello I'm about to get some work done to my VR in February and was looking at replacing the stock cams with the Schimmel 263's does anyone know if that is too big a jump from standard if I'm only running 6psi?
  10. Hi mate, well I believe so! I followed your advice and checked the radiator all seemed fine, also tried the cardboard to see anything under it but nothing - I did however notice a squeal from the engine bay after it warmed up and my supercharger wasn't completely on tight, and i believe that was the source of the noise, anyway... onto the important bit! I took it to RK Engineering in St Agnes who looked it over, basically HG had blown but not going into cylinders (could see small amount of residue coming from block after spraying compressed air, he then tighten the nearest head bolt to the lea
  11. Update! - On the drive home from work today car began to overheat again - checked expansion tank and it was empty, filled her up and took it steady on the way home (about 10 miles) and the temp gauge was barely reaching 60 degrees - not sure what to check now, thermostat? would a worn out water pump stop coolant flowing correctly? i'll pull the radiator off on the weekend and check it over Any advice would be greatly appreciated
  12. Was thinking of selling my seats can't seem to find any cream ones? Any ideas?
  13. Hopefully mate! Will park it in the garage next few evenings and see if I can see any puddles lol
  14. Just thought id update - Mechanic told me that some coolant hoses weren't tightened up enough and could see visible dripping from them, after flushing the coolant it was driven about and temp was back to normal, will be keeping a close eye on it though
