So I have started putting some work while waiting for parts to arrive

Accessory parts bracket before



Timing side mount before



Really tired looking, so thought I'd fix that







Next to the vc I cleaned thoroughly





Now let's see about this which is trickier



Changed this valve, although it was working perfectly



Masked



Much better











I need to do this to other parts as well, to feed my OCD madness.

Cheers

So, time for another update.

Spend a lot of time doing work on the car while waiting for parts.

First, I wanted to do something with the gearbox.

Before pics of it







Seen better days





Came out decent





I was thinking of painting it, but it will surely come out again very soon, both for clutch kit, and to change the 4th gear, or the gear that i will destroy one way or another. Been in the tfsi game for some years, i know that will happen, so already, ready, LoL. So that will do for now



Then, i remembered I have the Precision Intercooler from the Audi







cleaned and will propably replace the S3 8P IC i already have







Then, being that the car has been a daily for some years now, it is only logical that it has been filled with grime over time.

Pics of said engine bay filth



















Left to dwell with special mixtures of cleaning stuff



and then out came the water pressure and brushes, which resulted in this













Really excited with the results







After the bath



It went inside again to sleep

So i have some more things to show you.

Removed the front end to pieces and decided to clean everything separately.







The S3 8P intercooler was instantly sold that day without even listing it











Then it was time to reduce some of the crap that sit on my intake manifold





Fuel vapor lines





Removed tb to work better on the manifold





Time for this to go





and it will go for sale







Pile of junk getting bigger







And then of course i removed these from the manifold ports



and re-installed the small plastic side caps to fill the gaps (the ones APR is selling as billet )

Then I cleaned and enhanced all the hoses





Removed OEM engine mounts and fixed some scratches







Driver's side





And then things got interesting. Had a big shopping day at the stealership







Shared no expense wanted to go new all the way

Wait that's not all

















As well as these gaskets



Then, I thought, let's find an OEM GTI Intercooler



Let's hack the end tanks out of it gently



Let's cut the unnecessary connecting ends



And then, clean them and use them as very light spacers/installation kit for the oem ac radiator and mishimoto radiator, lol :)

more to come, stay tuned guys

Found this in my steering wheel this morning.





They come in teams of 4 I guess



Then I sourced some Audi parts, like my 4in intake



Plenty of heat sleeve



My AEM filter



Got dirt ? LoL



And a small teaser of things that have started to arrive





Engine is being cleaned and getting ready for assembly . . . stay tuned . . .

Cheers​

So some more boxes



Sorry China





Let's see what's inside them









Transmission mount









Engine mount





I love the quality of these things



I will also be using the Audi TiAL 50mm BOV and bought a new Aluminum Flange for it as well



Bought some of this



Well ok, not just some of it



Yes I wont forger dear DEI



Then some rods



Good old IE rods that have done the trick with great success over years



Nothing fancy to show you here



Threw some bearings in there as well



And then I also found this



Which is not the VF one I went for initially cause they were not in stock

Great quality to be honest





And then a place for the turbo to sit on





More to come guys

Cheers

I think I found my engine oil while wondering around in the garage



Oh there they are



Motul 300V Chrono 10W40 and these for the first round of drinks for the engine



Then it was time to move to the front end



And test-fit the mounts from the oem IC and see if everything would work like it should



AC radiator on top of them



And done



Next the radiator and fans assembly





Then it's a matter of chopping in order to fit this serious size IC from PTE



and everything will come together



Then some work on the car till engine is back from the machine shop



Feel free to call me crazy



But I will do what i did with the Audi and loved it



Look again















Whereas some more things arrived







Still missing the two shiny things that will sit on the exhaust manifold.

Cheers
