wow it's been a long time I know, but since melting a piston early this year, and some major issues in which direction to take
I decided the 2.0 tfsi engine that I had and was going to have fitted was just not worth the hassle & $$$$.
so I then bought nick Wallace 1.8t 70k S3 engine and had that fitted along with a fmic! The plan was to then sort out the fuelling and run smaller shot of nos on her to be on the safe side as the 100 shot was clearly tooooo much!
On completion of the engine replacement I was a happy bunny the car pulled really well, the lads @ LVS racing had done an amazing job as the engine bay was an absolute mess when they had received it and had never looked soo good when I got it back
Then like the twat that I am instead of taking it to chalice to let the nos lads work there magic I took upon myself to hook up the nos kit!!!
And what an epic mistake that was not even half an hour and melted no1 piston again
i managed to limp it bak to lvs racing & the lads were in total disbelief as you can imagine.
after striping her down the damage didn't look to bad, they had some parts from Aaron's S3 graveyard laying about and managed to get away with swapping a piston and two valves over, happy days or so we thought !!
After firing her up she went down on idle due to a cracked head!
For the 9 months of joy I had with the nos I eniveitably wanted more and more and brought on 9 months of hell thereafter
ho hum you live and learn
Soooo after a good 4k wasted I've now decided to go big turbo
the nos kit has been sold, and this lot has been bought
genesis 550 injectors
aem boost controller
the new engine I have is being bored to a 1.9 with a complete build by the LVS racing team
Will keep you posted now I've decided to be sensible
