hi and welcome!

The golf looks great. What made you change?

[/quote] Had the jbs 04 kit fitted by jbs and from that day all i ever had was problems with the car. i really do miss it but it was tainted after that

Was it JBS that was at fault or was it just the car developed probs. What bhp did you have coming from it in the end?

well the manifold warped/ cracked 3 times each time they made it seem i was at fault (there is a thread on SCN proving this wasnt the case ). And the turbo failed after 13 months and 10200 miles so id say the goods were not fit for purpose. the car was running 298bhp

Turbo definatly shouldnt of gone that soon. Im sure you did regular oil changes and cool down times for it. Other than that what can you do! That sounds like real shoddy workmanship.

Any plans for the S3?
