Ahh ok, should be fine then. I used to have a Chinese one and although it looks identical there’s no top box that I’ve found that fits it. It’s possible that they’re made for LHD cars as the shape and angles are all wrong.

100% genuine. You need a storage box with the button as opposed to the push to open one.
eBay item 233658831997 should fit looking at the photos mate.

My reconditioned hybrid turboImage
Been told it will take my caddy up to
240bhp but we will see.
Can’t wait to get it fitted and then get it tested to see what it’s got Image

Very nice mate. Have you got any plans for uprating the clutch/gearbox?

Not at the moment.
But that could be on the cards.
All depends on what the turbo puts out.
I will probably have to change the fuel pump and maybe the injectors.

I’m hoping so. Even if I manage to get 200 bhp I will be happy. But I won’t know until it’s fitted.

@anoneamus one of the guys at work thought it would be funny and bought me the dustpan and brush in the blue (brush and scoop) 🤣🤣
He also calls my caddy a spunky old gas van 🤣🤣

That turbo will be a tasty upgrade mate
How will the engine internals cope with the extra power?

I’m not sure they will.
I will probably have to do some more upgrades.
Like injectors, fuel pump and probably a 6 speed box and new clutch to get to the 240.
But I will see what I can get out of it first

Fair enough mate. I was thinking more about the conrods, shell end bearings and pistons.
A mate of mine years ago had an octavia VRS that he took from 180 to 240bhp, that used to eat driveshafts.

Could get pricey, throw a TFSI in
