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.where'd you get the interesting idea for the decals under the hood? I'm unsure what to think about it.
You mean the oem seats in toffee leather ?It'd be sliiiiightly harder to find one of those over here, what are you doing with the seats from that car? :biggrin:
Then again, who said the turbo will remain stock for ever :eyebulge:...Probably not needed on a stock turbo...
Here in Greece.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?
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/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.
Heard, is an understatement.
glad to know i'll be in good hands. I look forward to working with them and finally get my car going the right way. If I have any questions, i'll be sure to send you a pmHeard, 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
