All equates to 310bhp a whopping 584NM of Torque! This car is aa absolute Tool! Even sounds awesome when being driven, does not sound like a diesel at all and pulls hard even in first and 2nd, its unreal! Turbo Spools up from 2000RPM with Boost coming in very smoothly through the rev range with the limiter being lifted to 5500RPM.
I have owned this car for the last 6 years. All this work has been carried out last year with car coming back on road with the engine and turbo mods in September 2016, was mapped after 1000 break in miles by Narco Tuning in November 2016. It has full VW service History up till 125k. 310bhp yet still returns up to 35mpg! This car has NEVER been tracked or taken on drag strip. Was purely built as a daily driver/sleeper on road until you wake it up and it puts a massive smile on your face while returning decent MPG.
As can be seen A LOT of money, time and effort has been put in to getting this car mechanically sound for the performance levels its producing.
Receipts from Darkside Developments over £7k alone. Total over £12k+ spent. Pics of the engine build can be requested.
Car has always been warmed up for 3-5 minutes on start up prior to driving and has NEVER been pushed whilst cold.

Now to the bad points:
I personally had NO intention of selling this car for a long time yet hence all the effort of getting it to where it is, externally it does require some TLC as this was planned as my next stage of modifications to sort out the interior/exterior. The paint isnt great, does contain damage caused by some terrible car wash companies out there. There is a small minor dent that someone hit whilst car was parked, on the rear wheel arch. Plan was to eventually fully respray the car. Front bumper needs realigning and is marked at the lower section, passenger wing mirror cover is broken but I have a complete door mirror replacement all painted and ready to go on for the new owner.

The 888 Series Twin 6 paddle clutch kit is a track based clutch rated for 600ft/lbs!! I only purchased in August of this year for £900 with reciept. It wasnt recommended for road use but I purchased it anyway. It does take getting used to driving a twin paddle however its fine for every day use once you have driven it a bit. The very big negative point on this clutch kit is that it is VERY loud. Due to the twin plates and the flywheel being so light, it does make A LOT of noise when idling. I have purchased some thick sound deadener to line the bonnet and Wings with to quieten it down how ever didn't get round to doing it. Dash Clock displays 170k but this engine in reality is solid for easily another 150k.
The Airbag fault light is on dash, this is common fault on these, (Google it) the airbags have not been deployed.
Please note this is a 12 year old car still.
