Hey guys

After years of buying and selling gti because of all the problems. i finally decided to complete my teenage dream of actually turboing one. here it is my $1000 gti i bought as a daily.

I slowly sourced all my parts to save money but to also do it right. ive used a TD04 turbo which i purchased from a old member of redlinegti. everything else is from gumtree or bought new.

My original idea was to run my intercooler piping through the stock air box hole as most people do but changed my mind and run is straight under my headlight.

There are still a few problem like the engine wont sit at a steady idle and just stalls and im only using the stock waste gate actuator which i think is about 8 psi but my gauge only reads 5 psi.

any help would be appreciated.

future plans will be:
sways bars
fuel system upgrade
