    Opie oils sent me some goodies this morning


    Well got the reuilt this week and started it up and there were a loud tapping noise, I stripped the lifters down and cleaned them them all, they were some right crap in them, well looks like this crap were holding them together as now i have 2 lifters that won't hold preasure.

    Update: bought a complete AUQ small port head from mush on here and swapped the lifters and cams over to mine and all seem's well. Jobs a gooden lol.

    Why the car's been off road ive manged to get my boost gauge and oil preaure ghauge in


    The screw at the top will be counter sunk in and have one of these over the top


    Well today managed to finnish it at last and sorted my low boost out that ive had since i rebuilt it.

    special thanks to MUSH for sorting me out a cylinder head



    Here are some pics of what ive done, let me no you'r thoughts


    Colour is ktm orange









    Another busy day today got hold of some genuine rstt centre caps and got them on then spent the reast of the afternoon cleaning

    Question..... Why in some of the photos do you have VW wheel centres on the RS TTs on one side, and Audi ones on the other?

    LOL, other than that, very good going mate, glad it's come together.

    Where did you get that pillar pod thingy from? I would quite like a double one.

    For anyone wanting to do this here is what i used. Please note that thid is for a stack gauge and other may be different
    1x Oil Gauge Adapter 1/8" BSP to M10.1 For the block to hose as the lma hose are all female


    1x LMA braided hose 1/8 npt on one side and 1.8bsp flat on the other

    Looks great buddy! seem to be ticking over nicely with the modifications.

    Like the catch can, i chose it without the cap but it would probably be better as you could pack it with scubbers and then clean it out properly. Id probably struggle with mine. lol

    K04 turbo inc oil & water feed & return
    Running my 3 bar fpr with my walbro 255 in line fuel pump, will the standard pump allow this? or as prawn says I could use a lcr pump which would replace my pump all together
    S3 injectors
    S3/tt manifold ported to match my large port agu head (so i can use some of the s3 pipes to reatin some oem look to it)
    3inch maf housing
    Still looking into exhaust/Down pipe options let me know if anyone has any ideas
    Big fmic with custom pipe work which ill be making

    Thanks to Mush & Prawn for some of the info

    Does an a3 throttle body go onto the s3 inlet mani?? Hmmmmm.
