I'm surprised you've left the front panel on for all of this work, it's SO nice to work on with the front end removed.
So after struggling to get that crap and sticky black paint off that I think the guy I got it from used tar to paint it with....
I found blue underneath.
But it was painted like ass so that also had to come off!!!
And nearly half a day was wasted getting that paint off. But its now all painted up and looking pretty! Next up is making the spacer bracket then to fit them
The blue is gonna look very funky on your car dude..
Just a little update.
Sent my drawings in for the spacer for the rear brakes.
Got my ADR intake cam, got my block back and head so that should be all done on the car then its fitting time.
Sent both engine mounts in to get some medium compound poly filling so that's sorted to
Looking good bud.
Who did the mountings for you? My gearbox side is worn badly....
So another update motor is 90% complete and should be putting in on tuesday or wednesday

Got motor on tuesday late afternoon
I had some stupid moments with it that night lol
Put fly on, torqued it with lock-tight, put clutch and plate on then box and put all the bolts on...... And forgot to put the flex plate on so had to remove everything again and struggle to get the bolts loose lol
My awesomely shaped valves.....
GO HOME VALVE.... You're drunk
And I sorted out the bolts
And motor was ready to go in and be mounted
Put some temp stuff like the crap filter, no catch can and battery to see if it will crank and start.
Unplugged coils and cranked on and off for about 2 minutes to build some oil pressure, then plugged coils in and started.
It started 1st time and was alive, smooth idle, no leaks or anything. Very happy with the build and grateful for the mates that helped me.
On tuesday it will get a oil change, adjustable fuel pressure reg and some retuning then once I'm happy with it I'm off to the rollers to see if I keep my status of strongest K03s lol
Glad to hear this is going well! Keep it up
So went for some logs, fault codes and oil change.
Very happy with what I saw, except for 2 things.
1: getting incorrect heating and open circuit on bank1 sensor1 lambda
2: my injectors are 100% @ 21 duty cycles
So car was running lean, yosh recons I need 4bar and to change wideband.
So got cracking yesterday and changed lambda and my mate had a 4bar for me so changed that to. The car is running like a champ so happy with it.
Iv booked it in at UNITRONIC for tomorrow morning for some more tuning and run logs again. Gona drive it get it running 100s then off to dyno next tuesday to see the power! Maybe ill be stronger then Jardo hahahah
On another note my replacement glowshift oil pressure sensor arrived yesterday so going to fit that tonight or something then I can see my pressure.
Sounding good Miggles, very happy for you mate!

Great stuff Boet! I'm the dealer in Scotland. Know Yoshen Maistry from Unitronic pages. I'm busy with my second project S3 my self and cant wait to start.....Think I will need a doubl Vodka & Coke after. LOL
Check out my pics bro! Will send you friend invite.
F1 Seat Cupra's are the fastest hatch back ever. I have the fastest Cupra 13.00 @ 116mph 1/4 mile.
thats sick hey i like them, it looks slick on the outside but packs a huge punch
LOL. They surly are! How do you find the Unitronic software on your S3?
Mine is a A3 good sir not S3.
But the software is amazing, iv had a few different maps from different turners before but must say I'm extremely happy with it and the service will always recommend UNI to anyone
Thanks mate you to!
I got cracking on replacing my oil sensor tonight.
The two sensors together
The reason why this gauge was faulty
New sensor that has not folded itself
The port it will be going into
Sensor in, wired and working well I finally have pressure
And engine cover finally put back on and looking preddy
Looking good Miggles!
I never knew that plug could be used as an oil pressure take off! I'm considering getting a gauge for mine as well, just to be safe.
Hope the new engine is still running well for you Mapping today isn't it?
Car is fuging amazing its pulling so strong from start to finish.
When we did the 1st run the car was pulling 9' timing, after yosh did some settings and played with the meth settings we were down to 4.5' at full chat with outside temp being 28'!
He is very happy with my car and even me more!
All my apologies for bursting in on your post MIGGZ......Remember that anything more then -3 timing can be dangerous for your car. When you change a setting always have it data logged. When you run higher boost settings always come down a notch on the timing.
I have noticed you are using WMI MIGGZ, if you don't mind me asking what mix are you using?
O an yosh did all the logs I try not to mess around with things I don't understand
