That is good power and a nice curve on the torque. Do you know what PSI you are getting on the boost?
As you don't have a remap yet, what has given you these gains?
Great polishing work too, cars it looking and going very well by the looks of it.

Is it a standard exhaust and air intake/filter?
12psi sounds a bit remapped unless it was a 180 from stock?
We should take some readings to see where it is performing so well and then get the bugger remapped.

Yep, we would use my Vag com. We log the Mass air flow, the expected vs actual boost, adaptation readings and what the gas sensors are reading to get an idea of how fit the car is.

So you need a larger down pipe to get the most of that back box and to give the turbo somewhere to put the extra exhaust gas.

Nice build mate ive just read it from page 1, it looks like a totally different car!

Nice work, who were you thinking of getting it mapped with? Revo are good as well as Custom Code, you should get a safe 220-225 out of it with the front mount.
