    Anyone experience with Strictly European Motors?

    Have anyone have their car done at Strictly European Motors? How was the after service and quality of hte jobs? I'm looking to have either a custom turbo done by them or buy the ATP turbo for my VR6 and have them install it.

    I dropped by their shop today and asked about the turbo setup for my car. They never worked on a Mk4 VR6 though, but they said they can do it. Marco showed me some of the cars they are working on, it was unbelieveable.

    So we talked for aroudn 30min, answered alot of my questions and quoted me a price for the labour if I were to buy the ATP kit for my car. The price is very reasonable. Just waiting for the price for their custom turbo setup.

    It depends what you want. I asked how much would it be for the custom fmic for my car after I have the turbo kit in, they said around 2000 with all the custom pipes and installed. I think it's quite reasonable since the FMIC kits for the 1.8ts are going for aroudn 1000usd? and for my car it's all custom work to fit the pipes and installed.

    I'm mostly getting the ATP Stage 1 kit for my car. www.8vturbo.com they have kits for the Mk3's also. starting from 3100usd

    The labour to install the ATP kit, they said it's aroudn 600-800. They are doing a quote for me to see how much would it cost for them to piece out their own stuff and build the turbo for me, but still using the ATP manifold.

    $600-800 is peanuts

    How much for everything including the FMIC?

    not sure the custom turbo though, but for the ATP kit, I have around an estimate of 7k with the fmic and atp kit.

    well, I hope I can get it for a bit cheaper than 7k for the turbo setup and fmic installed.
    10psi with around 280hp at the wheels.
    Throw in another $1.5k-2k, I can run upto around 18psi and get more than 350hp at the wheel.

    If you are running 280 at the wheels, you better start thinking about getting a limited slip also and stiffen all your mounts...or else there is no way you are going to get all that sweet power to the ground.

    AND, take Zeus's advice to heart...running 18 psi on all stock internals in your VR6 could mean a CAA call!
