Bro but still!! Main question still remains unanswered?? Enough has been said and explained in earlier posts in technical terminology.
HOW ARE YOU MEASURING 35PSI OF BOOST?
You have no mention of changing internals and i dont think Skoda's internals can withstand that much boost pressure.
As Sameel put it earlier, there are cars running boost upto that figure but they also have internals to match.
Are the pics before the car was run because i dont think the car would look the same after running 35PSI boost with stock internals.
There are other members in the forum in US running cars at almost double of 35PSI boost but internals have been HEAVILY modded.
I had dicussed increasing boost of the DDiS engine/Mutijet 1.3 if its possible on stock internals but i too expected from stock 4-5PSI to about a safe 7PSI not 20-25PSI on stock internals.

Great spirit dude. Everyone makes mistakes, but it requires courage and honesty to admit those.

Laura looks good in red. Nice car!!

Second that.

I have been following the thread but keeping mum all the while as I suspected there was more to it. Welcome to TBHP akshat! Loved the pics of the red beauty!

Nice rims and wheels look just the right size. And lowered, the car looks much more poised than the regular Laura. I don't know anything about turbos and boost, so no comment, but your car is pretty fast. What brakes do you have? 100 in 8 sec is scary. Hope you have upgraded.

The brakes are the same... the brake booster is similar to the one in superb so they work fine... also due to the lowered suspension, the car does not nosedive to braking is uniform and accurate.

As i said earlier, was typing that post on my iphone which corrected the boost.. It was supposed to be a 3-5 psi increase. Also, the stock laura produces max bhp 105@1900 RPM (you can check this on the spec sheet for the laura) unlike the real VRS which produces 170 @ higher RPMs. Again, typos on the phone.

Everything is available for the common man bud... I have developed this one with my customers in mind. Also the rims are stock Skoda 17s..

I am putting the bodykit but am afraid that the bumpers will lower the car even more. Let me see how it goes and I will post pics if I decide to keep it.

So this is the thread everyone is talking about eh!! Akshat, 5.2 secs for 60 and 9 secs for 100 is not all that fast considering the effort you have put in the car. and about the boost..well i already had a nice time talking about that with jiggy so..

Seems to be a bit strange you did not notice "35" being said by all around. Your iphone might have done the "3-5" to "35" but, how did you read the submitted posts???

Anyway, this is more

Can you post the costs that were involved in getting your current setup done?
