Nice clean build man. Think you'll stop after your incoming list is completed?
Thanks! Probably not just yet. I also have a K04 and a bunch of parts not on the list ;)

You should add a new air compressor hose fitting, that thing leaked more than my piece of shit GTI did

AWE downpipe installed (10/18/2013). Sounds amazing and the extra power is very noticeable but quite loud with my engine mounts!

Initially wanted to clean my intake valves and put everything back to normal, but don't want to remove that intake manifold again anytime soon...

Intake Manifold fully removed out of the car. 3 out of 4 injectors came out with the manifold!


Rebuilding my K04 and putting it in while the car is down....hopefully completed sometime next month.

Busted K04

Ran the car a little today while I refilled the coolant.

The idling is much smoother after the valve cleaner, but the car would stall on hard throttle. I assume the S3 injectors run too rich. Still waiting for tune... this week.

Also cleaned the VWR filter today.

Some missing photos from my phone:

AWE DV, good for 650hp


S3 Injectors, assembled and ready to install


Noise Maker Device under the rain tray, removed.


Intake Manifold Support that I cut in half to free the intake manifold. The original triple square bolt (left) stripped. I replaced it with a 13mm hex bolt and it works great. Better access too.
