Works kit is:

The same price as previously (more or less)

Power up to 210bhp (170 Standard)
Torque up to 245 Nm (220)

There are 140 kits available at present in the UK
There is no part number
Dealers have been instructed to order manually as first come first served and not to market actively :D :D :D

Of course this applies also to tinheads as well as soft(in the)heads but we need a head start!

Did they mention anything about what the kit consists of? i.e. how they've upped the power?

I get the impression it's essentially the same but the bulletin did not specify this.
Needless to say I've asked them to order me one............

and........it's ordered 4 week (now 3) week wait
Enjoying the MCSC more and more now it's loosening up, not sure what will happen with another 40 bhp, already squeal the tyres, spin the wheels especially round corners (with DSC on) and as for the popping exhaust.....

Tried to take a roundabout at about 50 in the wet (very very wet) which would have been fine in my (4WD) Golf and had a fairly scarey loss of traction/understeer-it cerrtainly can be a bit of a beast in the wet-oh and fun!
