Driving everyday for now and its a nice mid-frame turbo for 1.8t if you have experience with tune small-mid turbos with tight wg (stock one about 1.1 bar)
As i said before the only problem - it chokes after 5500 even with a good boost (1.4 - 1.7 bar) the air flow stops to raise at this point

I still didnt fix bad clutch so in the logs you see load drops nmot raises and so on

btw anyone has experience here with a LSD on a FWD ? is it worth?

It is not worth it,specially for a daily.

1. Its very expensive for what it is. I am assuming you are looking at Wavetrac or quaife ATB.
2. The ATB is completely useless once a wheel loses traction ,which will happen in FWD and if you dont have EDL then you can forget about it. The other option is PhantomGrip but its a hit or miss for some people are the benefits are minimal. If your gearbox is tired it can even destroy the whole differential gears since there is no wear surface.

Get some semi slicks like Nankang NS2R and you are set.

The local company sells them for ~$500 and a half to install
I believe its a kind of quaife type
Car has EDL its a good thing in the snow but useless at the WOT

The goal is to keep traction on a wet surface
