    Been a busy boy today!

    Well even though we have had all this time off ive only just opened the bonnet on the S3 but ive surprised my self and done quite a bit.
    Fitted my Badger 5 TIP which was not as bad as i thought
    then i dusted off the Catch can that i got in the group buy ages ago. This was a little more tricky and took me most of today
    Then the last job today before i jump in the hot tub for the evening was to replace the dipstick and dipstick tube which had started to break up a bit so it was only right to change it.
    Last job which i wont get done today but i got all the worst jobs done is an Oil change but i can do that one evening after work.

    On doing the catch tank i found the little 90 degree bend under the manifold was split and had a huge hole in it so very hapy that i finally got round to doing that.

    Took the S3 out afterwards and OMG what a difference.

    Time to go out hunting some porkers!
    Ive been Badger 5'd

    i bet you'd like to see the difference the badger5 tip has made on the dyno now. i can imagine some good gains on your high spec'd motor

    Did you vent the can to TIP or atmos steve? I've found my car has been running so much better venting to atmos an I might do some CCDs logs this week to see if anything has actually improved.

    Yeah one way mate. Mine was a brand new one that I bought from the stealers last year and it had bent under the pressure of the twisted oil hose and the heat which nackered it. Since I blocked off the tip hole for the hockey puck and vented to atmos the car feels much better. I think this is due to the puck not working as a one way valve.

    Filter it up mate. It's cheaper than a new puck, it tidied the engine bay even more, and it shoul ensure a cleaner boost hose circuit.

    Really? Mines been fine, not had any fume smells at all.

    Since venting to atmos I've done about 200 miles of different driving and sitting in traffic and there's been no smell at all.

    Just ordered a filter on ebay so will fit that when it comes only thing i need to find is something to blank the hose on the TIP. As my catch tank is mounted down by the battery i think ill run a hose down near the bottom and put the filter there!

    Yeah, same, however I don't use a catch can. You only get it when stationary as the heat from the bay, and thus the smell, rises out from the back of the bonnet and into the pollen filter...

    Yeah it was a fun day although bending into a engine bay gave me nasty sun burn on my lower back which i found when i got in our HotTub set at 39c so it came as a little shock. Well ive ordered the blank and filter so will get them done this week. Next project is the audio. Having just had rear speakers for 3 months is doing my nut in.

    Hasnt the ecu accounted for the breather system in the intake though, as it is after the MAF, so could be running slightly rich?? if you know what i mean, its obviously a fine balance hence the need for a closed loop DV....maybe bills thoughts on that one?

    I was worried about this but a lot of the golf boys have done it on their 1.8Ts with no issues so I just went for it. The car does feel smoother and I've also got a louder turbo woosh but that might have been due to the shagged hockey puck not doing it's job properly!

    Immeasurable, and irrelevant to me
    its only re-breathing its fumes for emissions purposes

    It would be good to do logs with the breather intact, then vented....so your saying there will be a gain in doing this? May have to look into venting into the wheel arch area then the fumes should disperse rapidly

    This has been working well for me after EVAP deletion, that's where the EVAP system vents to on the S3.

    Where have you mounted the can Steve? Mine was a pain to get over/under the TIP to my can so I went over. I'm worried that it wont go over the top of the B5 TIP.

    I'd like to see pics of that Steve. I like where mine is, it's nice and secure and is easy to drain it's just the hose route that is a bit of a pain though it is better now i'm venting to atmosphere.

    Well i did a bit more today changed the oil and filter and while the front end was up on the stands i decided to take the wheels off and clean it up a little.

    Dirty dirty

    took the arch liner out and there was a load of rotting leaves in there. i highly recomend cleaning these out it was nasty
    and so spent some time getting it nice and clean




    also painted the calipers up in black

    Did the rears aswell but got to tired to take photos and just got on with it. Am amazed how clean they have all come up
