What did you do to your turbo today?

With Turbo and Super charging you can create massive horsepower with vw motors.

Think that'll be my long term aim Wally.

I never did manage to get the S40 to control that N75 valve. I might yet try and control it using something electronic and independent of everything, but for now it's just plumbed into my manual boost controller :-(
Thats exactly what I mean: I never got the N75 properly working either; seemed like it was not really meant to be 'controlled' by a stand-alone ecu. Please invest a few tenners and get a decent 3-port. More power down low in the RPM because of it. Night and day difference for me it was.

Would you run the 3-port on a separate independent EBC Wally?

Sorry for the late respons, but I was moving house...
Yes, I run it on a seperate EBC (Gizzmo iirc), but on the ECU (DTA) it works as well. The independant EBC just gives me more 'on the fly' adjustibility. I think it has 6 boost settings. Setting 6 is my 'ludicrous mode' hehe.

Replacing a faulty 3 bar map sensor. Got about 6 months out of a non-GM generic ebay version. Ordered a genuine GM map off ebay.

Turns out the sensor was fine because the new one is doing the same thing. Ended up replacing a spark plug insulator and a tach lead grommet. All cleared up.
