you can also get a power enterprise turbo for about 4k euros inc vat u can get the hks systems for 4.5k-7k

naturally with each one you will have to upgrade various bits of the engine to go along with it

most kits also come with there own induction kit .

hks and power enterprise do a supercharger kit as well

dont forget the oil intercoolers there important

id love to see a na around the 270bhp mark

No doubting TDi have nice stuff and know what works.... but when you add VAT and shipping to their prices it just becomes silly..... actually don't think i will ever buy ( or be able to) anything from their site... :(

Pro-lex.UK is is a little better, but not much :cry:

As we all know the stuff for cars in this part of the world are well over priced. Lately some shops in Ireland are getting better but england is a real no no for most things. I usually use takakaira for anything other than basic service stuff
