    Proof Your Stock Inlet Elbow Needs Changing

    The fit is very good, there is a subtle difference to the racingline r600 hose and racingline turbo inlet elbow I have gone back to stock as may sell the car soon. (Stock air box is modded though) I have the revo inlet for sale if interested

    What a day..Purchase Gone Wrong.

    I think you did the right thing. Too many issues to resolve and likely to be false promises. I bought a nearly new motor from a main dealership, agreed pick up date as there were minor paint issues to sort and a kerbed alloy - think it was 3-4 days after agreeing the sale. On day and agreed time of collection there was the motor with the alloy repair man still working on the car - I waited patiently 2 hours until repair completed, paid the £17,000 balance and took possession of documents and keys. By now it was raining and just wanted to get home. Checking the externals in the rain is not a good thing to do, so decided to get off home in the new motor. Opened door and well, no nice valet prepped interior, it was like someone had been using the car as a demo and couldn't be arsed to clean it out. I kinda just gave in then as I wanted to get home, so made a conscious decision I could probably do a better job on the interior than they could. But it still pissed me off - I had my say on the feedback questionnaire and will never buy from them again. Stealers will always try to con you no matter what they say.

    I managed to source the Revo inlet for my mk7.5 R and just wondered if anyone has any fitment advice as I found that the machined turbo inlet piece revolved on the turbo fitment and didn't lock into place? The instructions say "Install the new machined Revo turbo inlet. Note: It will only fit onto the turbo one way so you will need to line up the slots on the inlet to the turbo first, once lined up push into the turbo and then twist 90° so it locks into place". It's secure on the turbo but it's only the hose and jubilee clip keeping it fixed in place otherwise you can turn it freely 360 degrees and nothing locks, does that sound right? The stock elbow, Racingline and APR versions have the T30 fixing screw to keep it tightly locked but not the Revo. Any thoughts would be helpful?

    Use Menzerna final finish 2500 or 3000, it will remove your scratches and leave a mirror like finish

    Here's mine, you can see the dv+ is right up against jubilee clip on the VWR600 Hose. I have the Racingline Inlet Elbow fitted I might swap out to the the revo

    I think this fitment issue is related to the facelift mk7.5 and not the mk7 as the GFB DV+ is a different fitment

    I think the GFB DV+ needs to be filed or ground down on the end that causes the fitment issue. I have emailed GFB in Ozz today to see if they know about this

    I did remove the DV+ on Sunday but noticed a real lag in the turbo and throttle response so put it back on yesterday and the R is back to being awesome 😁😁

    I also have the GFB DV+ fitted but notice there is hardly any gap between the racingline inlet house to allow the jubilee band clamp to fit - I have to force the clip down with a flat blade screwdriver - I am using the racingline inlet elbow - anyone else have this issue?
