  1. Well, I left the house at 0430 this morning for a 3.5 hour drive to BCS. The car was only serviced yesterday so its nice and fresh, and in good mechanical order, ready to receive some mods. Nige and his staff have a impressive set up and are a very friendly and knowledgeable. I was made comfortable in a nice waiting room and given Netflix and coffee to keep me happy for a few hours. I was shown the parts to be fitted beforehand as they cant be fully appreciated once woven through the engine bay, which is definitely worth while as the downpipe and resonator delete I was having fitted are truly exquisitely made. Being an engineer myself, I can really appreciate the skill that’s gone in to making both parts. Fitting took a few hours, then it was off for a test drive. Normal - slightly louder, and noticeably more pops/crackles and DSG farts. Race - considerably louder and comical pops and crackles. Basically, as I said to nige, I feel like I have had a 2 grand full system installed for half that. Plus its still switchable depending on my mood or if im attending a funeral 😄 Overall, very impressed with the product and service from BCS. 👍. Now with the hardware installed, it was a 30 min drive east to see Rick at Unicorn. Again great customer service. If I’ve got a coffee, a sofa and some car mags, I’m a happy man. The car had stage 2 map, throttle map, DSG map and ‘switchable impulse mode‘ all installed. The car made just shy of 390 bhp and 385 ft/lb. not bad considering Im on a factory intercooler. Supporting mods were... DIY modified OEM air scoop snow grate removal ram air panel filter forge intake pipe BCS 200 cell downpipe BCS resonator delete Most impressive was the power/torque curve. Very smooth and relentless power delivery. The throttle map is sweet as well, and does kind of do away with needing a pedal box, although I may keep it as I like playing with the settings, again, mood dependent. The dsg tune has made the normally redundant sport mode totally useable and has obviously upped the clamping pressure to deal with the extra torque. On to impulse mode... 😉 it’s truly comical. Had lost of fun on my way back, going through rush hour traffic in Glasgow sounding like I have anti-lag installed, or im letting off short controlled bursts with a Uzi 🤣 again its switchable, so you can just use it when the mood takes you. It is very loud though, even with a standard back box. I’ll try to get the mrs to film us going through the Clyde tunnel 😉 it’s definitely not suitable for use at a funeral 🤣🤣🤣 Again, I would recommend Unicorn. Very knowledgeable about this platform and very good maps. So another 3.5 hour drive home, and I can now say Im now happy with my car and am going to spend no more money on it! with the exception of a set of PS4s. And a couple of little cosmetic jobs. And probably a load of other stuff I’ve not thought of yet 😄 Lew.
  2. This is the brand new 76.0mm Golf R Mk7/7.5 Downpipe from BCS Powervalve... Following on from the demand for ultimate flow we have developed this with clients looking at up to 600 bhp in mind. Featuring the oversized 100 cell cat with an open area equivalent to an 93.0mm open pipe and the brand new 76.0mm 'Softflex' specifically developed with flow in mind having a genuine 76.0mm I.D. unlike previous 76.0mm flexis which only offer a 69,0mm I.D. To further compliment the downpipe both the catted and cat delete pipes will now be supplied with the 1200 degree titanium thermal wrap to enhance power further, and the 200 cell lambda mini cat. Thanks for looking Nige
  3. Hello VWROC, I'm Chris, originally from the UK, but based in Melbourne, Australia. My first post here, apologies for the length. I've spent a little bit of time on the forum over the last few months, picking up tips and reading this section mostly. I thought I'd start a thread and get amongst the community. Also quite nice to document the journey I've had with the car so far... Back in July last year, I took delivery of this, a late 2015 delivery Wolfsburg edition R, in Limestone Grey. They released a limited number of these over here, in hatch and wagon formats. Unfortunately, the 7 never made it to the shores here as a 3-door Based on the standard R, the Wolfsburg also comes with: Pretorias in gloss black Gloss black mirror caps Carbon/Nappa Leather ACC The car also has DCC optioned too, along with an Audison audio upgrade. Here's a picture from day 1, when the car was delivered at work. You may notice the ride-height - the previous owner had VWR springs fitted, along with a Whiteline rear sway bar (amongst other mods, some of which were subsequently removed before being sold to me). Having a friend that decided to step away from the world of tech (loosely) and start his own garage has been both a blessing and curse! I've always been into cars, so it was inevitable the modifying bug would take hold, only I thought it'd be at least 6 months before I started. After 3 months, I was down at said garage for a Stage 1 tune. They have their own Dyno, so it was a custom tune, also confirming the car had a dsg map from the previous owner. Here is it on the dyno, along with the graph, where it made a respectable 214.5 Kw at all 4. They love kilowatts here, which has taken some getting used to. Should roughly equate to approx 290 at the wheels I think. I also had a CTS turbo inlet pipe fitted, to accompany the turbo turbo muffler delete, with a ram air filter and flow mod completed too. The difference the tune made was superb. As you'll see, it's power delivery is linear, and feels really nice out on the road. The airbox mod created improved induction noise too. Another month passed, and after driving a friends stage 2 with an IE CAI, I was talked into buying one of those too, to create a little extra noise. Being quite pedantic when it comes to my car being clean, I'd booked the car in for a full detail, including a ceramic coating. The paint wasn't in bad shape, but I was keen to create an extra layer of protection. December rolled around, and it went in for two days work. I'd also removed the ugly European plate holder that they dealer fit when arriving here, fitting some bumper plugs which cleaned the front up a little. A picture from picking the car up (amongst much more exotic machinery), and at home out in the sun. That's how the car currently stands. I've got it booked in this week to have the front de-chromed, with gloss black to tie it in with the rest of the car. Future plans are a full TBE - I'd quizzed Nige at BCS re a down-pipe late last year, but decided to hold off and wait to get a few holidays out of the way before going for the full system. I'll also have a stage 2 tune completed to compliment the exhaust. Long term plans are hopefully some track time, maybe a BBK, wheels and tyres. Said friend's garage (Underground Performance on Facebook) are also helping develop and test full hybrid turbo solutions, with some excellent results. (Snail Turbo on Facebook) That could be the future, but definitely a while off yet. Thanks all for reading if you got this far. I aim to keep this up-to-date as the changes take place. Cheers!
  4. Images of the Mk6 Powervalve Sport (Single rear silencer) with cat delete pipe Thanks for looking Nige
  5. One or two of the members wanted to listen to the new Rev III design Powervalve system, which features a greater deal of popping and burbling when free revving. In addition there is a larger amount of reverb on the overrun... Thanks for looking Nige
  6. Recent review in VW Driver magazine.Thanks for looking.
  7. Another recent members car installation of the Powervalve full turbo back variable tone system with Ceramic black coated trims. This one features the new 100 cell cat as the car was utilizing a hybrid turbo pushing 500 bhp. Custom mapping was performed by Rick at Unicorn A perfect result and zero drone. thanks for looking... Cheers Nige

  9. Big thanks to Nige and Dave @ BCS they have now finished the development work on my car for the 7.5R turbo back system so orders are now been taken. A few pictures below to show you all, the craftsmanship is second to none & the sound is simply sublime !
  10. Hi Guys I'm new to this forum so I hope you enjoy my first post. I took delivery of my new 7.5R back in July I took the car straight to JJB motors in York and had the following fitted. Racingline Big Brake Kit. Racingline Street sport plus suspension Racingline turbo muffler delete Turbo Technics large bore intake hose Apr carbon intake Wagner intercooler Cosmetic mods. Oettinger roof spoiler Black vinyl wrap roof Next up BCS are taking my car as a template vehicle on the 4th Sept because as we all know the 7R exhaust outlets are not the same as the 7.5's so Nigel & Dave at BCS are developing there awesome well regarded turbo back system to fit the 7.5R's, currently only milltech offer a system to fit. Then from BCS it's straight to Rick at Unicorn for some stage 2 treatment !!
