    I've mentally noted my concerns and an increase in anxiety that I'm now pushing the limits of the engine, clutch & turbo. So one last push - Modified and increased the MAP & MAF settings in the ECU first thing. I need to know... I've left a 5% safety margin in this mornings map. First is to correctly read the newly installed 3 bar MAP sensor (did the calcs for a 4 bar to, as it will be necessary for big boost & hp targets) , plus found the MAF maximums which were 1489.3mg/s (which I've made). It now reads the ECU maximum at 1625mg/s, this is enough air to mix 108mg/s of fuel at 15:1 & possibly a reason why Shadowmaker moved to a twin turbo setup if you've ever followed his build threads. It's on my build agenda.

    Took the dayvan out yesterday to sailing and my first outing with the newly fitted Passat steering wheel. It really is worth the effort to change it - remember Ive been driving this van for 8 years! Recommended.

    Quick note I used the T4 airbag rather than the supplied Passat unit. Physically they look the same, same finish very similar part number. Having looked at the pn# there was a difference - both start 3B0 (Passat B5 model identifier) but the last 3 digits were different. Could be a charge size difference / bag shape for a van / car .... just thought I'd mention it.

    Dan, I'm not one for stickers but a van coloured Just T4s badge would be a nice addition to the steering wheel?

    Looks like a worthwhile mod. Will be even better with your Passat steering mounted mfa controls......

    The Passat MFA wheel looks identical , similar styling but the alloy carcass and internals are different. If I was to fit it I think I would use the buttons and cabling for a computer menu / mouse control. Keep the stalks for Cruise & the MFA.

    Well sort of - I liked Arfs Lucozade bottle idea in yesterday's thread - it got me thinking about recycling & pissing people off - so I've fed a feed pipe & funnel from the drivers position so I can top up the smaller washer fluid jar on the go and in an environmentally friendly manor.
