    Little bit of an update (PIC HEAVY)

    It's been a while since i've started a thread but here goes.

    I've been keeping my self busy recently and playing bit of catch up with westy

    But first i went on my hols.





    When Westy bought a Milltek i couldn't resist anymore and purchased one.






    followed by the welly cooler







    Then whilst on my hold i spotted this on flee bay and had to have it because i've been looking for a sportier steering wheel.





    Then i wanted to fit a Liquid Gauge but didn't want to lost my manual boost gauge so i went for the pillar mount option and fitted a oil temp gauge at the same time.









    took a bit of time out with my car and started helping big cheese with his little project.....



    it's currently having a cage fitted so back to mine, i wanted to fit the liquid gauge the same way as tuffty has as i like the idea of having the the ODB port free for vaginal communication.

    so i set on my way and here are the results many thanks to big cheese for the wiring he knows his way round cables...



















    So welcome to mission control










    Do you like?

    I think I'm a bit down on power as it stage 2 liquid was showing 274 ftlb and 265 BHP. altho last night the figures were more...

    I forgot to mention

    i haven't been using my car for 2 months it's been parking in my garage.

    Anyway just before i went on holiday i thought i'd take it for a spin as i was reversing out down the dropped kerb i heard a distinct metallic twang. whilst out on my drive the noise from the rear was very loud so i went straight home to find this.




    Many Thanks to S3 JOHN for sorting me out with these.




    also my passenger window motor died as well....

    when i got back from my hols i had a flat battery....

    its ok matey. i used photoshop with your two pictures and managed the read the writing. and figured it out. once i did it i then got them sent to me from Jim at race diagnostics.

    I use my revo box to disable the ECU at night i forgot to switch the switch, plugged the box in and the liquid gauge start flash. for a moment i thought i fubard it... "mental note flick the switch"

    but all is ok.

    Good work matey, I'm jealous of the stack gauges, liquid, and wheel. It must now be time to do your engine

    The wheel is off of a B6 A4 of some kind according to the part number on it, which is why the airbag was a direct swap. Not seen this wheel before so I assume it was an option for one of the sportier models

    It's got an OEM part number on the wheel which is apparently from a B6 A4 but all B6 wheels I've seen don't look like that!

    I want a smaller wheel as the OEM one is a bit too big. I'm not fussed about the airbag as it's hit an miss as to whether it'll actually go off in an accident anyway!
