Way cool. I'm still chomping at the bit waiting for my TDi from Urban Cruisers.

I sure did and I already had a full width Allard Intercooler before the install. I also had the turbo and exhaust ceramic coated. I'm very happy on all accounts with the exception of fuel economy. I had heard rumors of improved economy. Not the case for me although I should take a look at the fuel pump settings. Let me what kind of PSI/BAR readings you get.

I haven't done the VNT turbo install, I've just been lurking and seeing what people think about it. But I can give you a stock reading when I get mine installed.

It would be really valuable if you could take EGT and boost readings before as well. That way you get a comparison on your own particular configuration. Do you currently have sensors installed?

Randy, whose kit is this? I've got a disco 200 with a 300 manifold/turbo and I'd like a VNT at some point. Looks like this kit keeps the stock 300 turbo inlet and outlet locations.
