Slow progress, damn work keeps getting in the way.
Car is mostly back together and just waiting on a couple of small things to be sorted out, then on to remap, exhaust and modification!!
I have a center exit exhaust rear valance coming from overseas, factory VW part made for the MK7. Need to fab an exhaust to suit but thats easy enough.
The MK 7.5 3 door is awesome, pitty they will stop making them.

really nice John!
you ended up selling the mk5 already?
What clutch and flywheel did you use? as the OEM ones are crap if you tuning.

No the mk5 is still in daily use till this is ready. Will be up for sale soon.
Wife's car so I doubt there's going to be much playing around unfortunately,  as much as I'd like to go crazy I've been forbidden  ;D
But!! You know how that will turn out.....

You may need to do a lot of ‘routine servicing’ on it.

haha you already talking exhaust and tune. So it would be rude not to do intercooler, LSD and IS38 Turbo :P

Forgot to update this, the car has been together and road registered for a little while now and is a little ripper!
Love the manual box, retro fitted sat nav with the 8" screen which was a nice upgrade.
Still have to get the ACC calibrated and adapted for manual gearbox but thats thankfully not stopping it being used.
Once all the fault codes are taken care of and everything is working I'll look at a stg 1 and some sort of exhaust set up.
Still under 1000km on the clock so a bit more running in on stock boost won't be a bad thing.
