0.3 bar mate, yes.

check all the hose clips are tight, esp the ones by the intercooler.

did you fit the throttle inlet rubber seal?

Have something to contribute?

Here are some more toys that I will fit soon. I mamaged to get a TTE airbox in perfect condition, which I will fit sometime in the future. At the time I am happy with the induction kit. I also managed to get some radiator silicone hoses, which actually I am not sure where all of them fit. I also purchased a Tom's radiator from Prolex, which is fantastic! And lastly I got an Autometer triple gauge pod, which i will alter a bit to fit in the center of the dash.More upgrade parts from USA (They are still in Athens Customs!!! :blink: ), will be fitted on the car soon :winky:
