So picked up from where we left. More work was done on the car



Coolant tank installed in place

Gear linkage connected



Heater hoses from GT, customised and installed



3in Decat Downpipe installed in place and joined my 2,5in catback which will be replaced when hp increases in the future to come



Didnt like these bolts here



So replaced them with brand new



This little plug here is easy to brake



I did hit it hard while the engine was getting in the engine bay, and although i think it will work . . . I couldnt let it be . . .



Sadly it comes with the whole valve which costs a lot



Damn expensive mistakes I guess.

Can you believe these wire and sockets cost 50euros ?



I know I cant to be honest.

Out with the old tacho





Guess which one goes in



You guessed it correctly





Sit Back and admire what you've done







Then I did some work. No, then I did A LOT of work, on the donor car, exposing the wiring to see what I might or might not need.





There are some plans on how to continue from here on, one plan is taking everything apart from both cars and switching wiring from one to another and not cutting of any kind. The other is to see what is missing from canbus-engine-ecu-interior and just move those. We shall see



Then I cleaned an area in the hood



And started doing work



Took my time, to make sure it will come out perfect





Halfway there



Almost there now



Job Done







Yeap, I think I like it a lot. Hope you do too guys



Cheers

Mike​

where'd you get the interesting idea for the decals under the hood? I'm unsure what to think about it.
Gold tape is heat reflective, its to help protect the paint on the hood in the area over the turbo from excessive heat. Probably not needed on a stock turbo, but I kinda dig it. I'm a big fan of motorsports inspired touches though.

Removed my handbrake and took it to the trim shop



Back in the days, in the first Golf MK5 I used to own, the whole thing was covered in leather. Then they went cheap, and covered half of it. F A I L



But I think that is about to change



Then, we sourced the starter I was after



Looked a bit tired to begin with



but it was nothing I couldnt turn around in some minutes











Then, dont ask me why, I decided to do something with this heat protection for the front axle.



It was tired and dirty





Cleaned it



Removed the protection that reflects heat



Cleaned again



And then, gave it some wrinkle flat black to make it fresh





But did not stop there and gave it some protection myself to reflect downpipe heat from the axle









Cheers more to come​

Random, I was poking around in your audi build thread. Where did you find those plastic inserts for the speed holes in the rear bumper?

Here in Greece.
Let me know the sizes you want and I might fix you up.

PS: you cant begin to imagine the amount of people that have asked me about those since I updated my build thread back then.
I chose to not help all of them copying this idea. I love your project though mate, and I would love to help, so feel free to send me the dimensions and I will try to find them when I have time from hospital.

Regards

Mike

not sure on dimensions yet, just have been toying with the idea of doing it so I was looking around for parts. By the way, have you heard or worked with etuners at all? I was told by a friend to check them out for help with tuning my car http://www.e-tuners.com/

Heard, is an understatement.
Not only have I heard of them, but they are good friends of mine to begin with.
I know the two e-tuners guys, from back in the days when they started together. They were the first guys that tuned my Golf GT, 1,4TSI engine and they had also tuned my Audi, and my friend's BT GTI which was one of the first to be done ever.

They became known not only in Greece, but also around the world these last years. They have also tuned the Golf MK6 R, of my friend Stefan from Romania, Tfsi engine, that made about 780hp :)
I have a feeling you will be seeing a video footage of that car, pretty soon.

If you want my opinion, and want your car to work like it should, contact them, and I am sure they will look into your very serious project.

The ECU of the donor car you saw above was also unlocked from them :) :thumbsup:

Feel free to shoot me a pm if anything more, I'd be glad to help
