hi,

yes i bought the scoob 4 years ago as a my00 2000 turbo and had it re mapped twice, with a ihivf35 turbo and hks 4-2-1 headers,de cat, walbro, sti cooler etc est 290-310 bhp it shifted but petrol guage shifted with it no matter what driving style i used, did everything myself except the re-maps

whats annoying is its still sat in my drive and cant drive it only for viewing purposes as its going to be advertised this week when the rain stops so i can clean it

dont know where to start with the golf as of yet, i want to keep the interior standard but the sterio is dia for some reason its the 8 speaker gammer one but i had a golf v5 and that was prety aceptable but i dont know why this one sounds so tinney?

plus the turbo sounds a bit hollow screech acompaned with high turbo screech on boost then gose normal high pitch past 2500k??

other than that car looks abd drives brand new am impresed with it+++

Welcome to Tyresmoke Andy +++

Check your boost pipes if the engine's making a noise. As for mods, get it remapped. Shark_90 on here can help you out with that.
