The fog lights turned out great!

Have any thoughts about installing a front intercooler, for the looks?
With read hoses behind the fog-light cover = NICE
Thank you. :wink:

Well here is the thing, I already have an S3 8P intercooler, which, to be honest, works great to power like 400-500hp at crank.
Tested and proven throughout the years. Yes I already have an FMIC from Precision Turbo, that I could install.
But each thing at its time.
If you meant red hoses, not my style to be honest, but thanks for the suggestion :wink:

^lol :facepalm:

First of all some more new things

This one, the plate that goes between engine and transmission, that took 5 days to get here - f*ck it



Fresh Axle Bolts





Spark Plugs



Axle Bolts Connectors



Wheel Hub Bolts



Crank rear seal





Sourced the tacho I was after, with the big MFD screen like I have on the GT



ECU



And took everything apart on the donor car to get what I need more or less



Engine was the lifted, oil changed, oil filter and I gave a bit of love to the block which looks pretty good it seems



Then , changed the crank rear seal

Out with the old



In with the new



Changed this, which was tired and broken





And also installed the RS4 valve



Hopefully more tomorrow, and I hope it wont be long till engine is in my car



Cheers

Thank you very much.
I am sure you will like the Audi, even more :)

Just one awesome build! Love that its not like the normal slammed Volkswagen! Total insperation!
Thank you very much :thumbsup:

Wish Mishimoto made one for the TSI..
To be honest, I would not bother going for a mishimoto if I had an oem one.
Workds great for high power applications and has zero issues even on track abuse. However given the fact I had to buy one for my application, I thought why not. :happyanim:

So . . . more updates today.

Received an exceptional package from my friend Andy @ Dazzle-Car .



Got some more boring bolts, for the hpfp and for the side cover too



Transmission was thrown on



And hpfp would be installed next along with some work on the wiring







Fixed all the broken conectors, like this, using of course my beloved tape



Oem style all the way



Then had to remove the oem GT gear linkage system, and replace it with the oem GTI linkage system. In order to do this, I had to release some nuts from the interior of the car. And in order to do that, I had to remove the center console. But to remove that, I had to remove one seat.

RECARO wasnt happy



Result of the above story, is this mess I made. Dont worry, I took it all apart, so I know how everything goes back in :)



Up it goes



Old ones in situ



Removed



Disconnected



From this



OEM radiator removed



Let's go for a ride



Lift Up





Landed



Secured in place



Me Likey :D :D



I also cleaned and modified a GTI OEM engine cover



And threw it on for fun



Not gonna stay there though. LoL.

Cheers, more to come.
