Thanks all! :)

It's already a great laugh and bundles of fun to hoon around in, even on wastegate pressure with no boost control and my rough and ready, fairly safe and conservative map. Can't wait to get it properly set up on a dyno and crank up the boost - it should be absolutely hilarious :lol:

I'll try and bring it along to the next owners club meet I attend - if I'm ever free on the right day :roll:
