    You'll be surprised to know that the dc5 manifold actually fits with the UKDM front arb. Just need the engine mount inserts.

    I thought I'd bought a front JDM arb but it turned out to be a rear which I already had fitted... So Stevie put the manifold on with UKDM arb and I had no issues at all.

    Wow it get's better! I've already fitted the engine mount inserts and the gearbox insert so I could just go about fitting it then super, cheers Hazz .

    If your sticking with that set up, Like hazz said drop in cams will only offer a little extra for the money.
    After your done with that I would save money on DIC's and spend it towards LSD and whilst that's been done look at the rest of the transmission.
    Other ways of making the car accelerate than adding bhp.

    Yeah DIC will be last on the list, I plan on an LSD was thinking of maybe trying to get a JDM gearbox as I've heard you get better ratio's and an LSD is standard in them, if not I plan on getting a diff (got a new clutch kit to go in just want a LSD before fitting).

    Power wise I'll stick to the set up without DIC, I plan on doing gearbox work and suspension too, I'll see what that's like then decide on whether or not it'll be worth going down the cams route.

    At 248bhp I still wasn't hitting full duty cycle on the OEM injectors.
    What mods were you running for that?

    It was an 05 EP3, 90k miles at the time of tuning. K100, fd2 cams, RBC, AEM CAI, Japspeed 4-2-1 & sportex silenced b-pipe. Mapped by TDi north (optimistic rollers).

    Sweet. How was the japspeed 4-2-1 build/quality wise, as some say they are prone to cracking quickly.

    With the RBC did you have to cut the slam panel.

    Yes you do have to slightly trim the slam panel to fit an RBC, TDI North are saying the M2 one gives better gains and no cutting is required.
