    [Blog] Dan-Jnr - 2002 Audi S3 8l (225) Negaro Blue

    Time to start a blog already. Won't be much changing but as and when parts fail or require replacing I'll be letting everyone know on here.

    Firstly how the car looks now.

    Since having the Audi I noticed that the engine moves a lot during gear change and slow speeds.
    Did some research on line and discovered that the red Powerflex dog bone mount for the deisel engines stops engine movement without the excessive vibrations you get from the yellow Powerflex mount.
    The difference the mount has made is noticable and has greatly reduced the engine rocking. Took less than an hour to complete this upgrade.

    Whilst I was under the car I had a look round the engine area, noticed this on the O/S driveshaft.
    New CV outer boot from Audi is £35 so will get on ordered and replaced.

    Booked in to Audi Trafford on Monday 27th June for the recall on ignition coils.

    I am really enjojying the power/boost at the moment so no plans for engine tuning yet.
    When I get a free weekend I am going to give the engine bay a good clean over and under, and sort the wheel arches.

    I am also looking for a hands free solution that will charge my Blackberry, and allow me to play music from my phone through the Audi Concert unit.

    yes I was, picked up the Powerflex bush, and enquired about replacing my CV boot. I am guessing your (yellow with black mirrors) car was parked next to mine. Your paintwork looked in top condition, nice shine to it in the sun.

    Thanks, I thought it was liquid yellow, only seen that colour on a Clio 197 F1 Edition. Probably the best yellow after Peugeots sundance yellow.

    Got a price for the genuine Audi part, but going on two holidays in July so will have to wait until I get back.

    Future plans, none so far, maybe a Stage 1 map, but to be honest I am only just getting used to boost power, compared to n/a power.

    I had a Cherry Red 106 GTI with a 200BHP ITB Sandy Brown engine, and a Black 106 Rallye with original 1.3 8v engine (both pictured here)
    I did have a silver GTI before I had the other two Peugeots, but I had a fight with some armco at Outlon Park last year.

    The one after Druids, as it runs up to the finish straight, 2 wheels on damp grass, 2 on dry tarmac, lift off oversteer, backwards in to armco.
    Done that corner over 100 times pushed myself a little too hard.
    Managed to drive in to pit lane with 3 wheels, and 1 hanging on by the handbrake cable.

    Small world, I've been mates with Sandy since he was building his own 205 Rallye (I had a similar one, only 8v) years back. Top bloke and certainly knows his stuff.

    Dan is your car remapped? If so then the g/s figure of 188.67 looks a bit on the lowside, remapped cars should flow arond 200 g/s, may just be a boost leak but worth investigating.

    Thats excellent flow for a standard S3 using the 0.8 formula that equates to 235 BHP appreciably above standard really good news

    Dropped the S3 off at Audi Manchester today for the following:

    Full Service
    MOT

    Get a call this afternoon, passed MOT, one advisory regarding a stone chip in my windscreen. Not bad for a 9 year old car.

    The OE TT pedals turned up today. Only a 10 min job to change them over. Makes a lot a difference.

    New addition to the S3 last weekend.
    My friend bought a set of mirror housings in brushed aluminium for his A3 S-Line from eBay, and I thought they looked good.
    After having a nightmare with my pair of mirror housings made from ABS and painted in matt Aluminium from an eBay stockist in Germany, they arrived cracked, and still waiting for my refund. I found a set of OE solid aluminium mirrors on eBay for a bargain £103. They are £350 each from Audi.
    Didn't take long to fit and make much of a difference. Just hope they don't get nicked for scrap metal.
    Almost got all parts for the arm rest upgrade, RNS-E retrofit, and cruise control upgrade.

    Nice thread. Would be very interested in the arm rest upgrade. I have one more part to get before I can do mine. I just can't see how I will bolt it in place because I can't seem to remove the plastic surround that sits between the centre console and the rest.
