    Thanks. Well spotted the LCR splitter is about an inch too short, when I was fitting it I tired to trim here and there to make it look stock and got a bit excited with the dremel, it look really bodged, so i chopped it to make it equal lol.

    S3 passed its MOT which is great news, so now its play time!

    Intercooler is going on this Saturday and then the follow weekend is engine change time with Ben @ Parsonsperformance.

    After that is mapping time. I am hoping for good figures, well at least over 320bhp and circa 300 ft lb of fun fun fun.

    What Intercooler are you opting for?

    I notice you put "Parsons Special FMIC + 2.5inch Pipework" - is this basically the wellycooler?

    To be honest I am not 100% sure what Ben is up to with it, he gave me a list of pipework to buy and off I went.

    I think you most likely had seen Alex's beast/toy.

    Should have some more interesting stuff soon to post..

    Haha- sounds like how I go about modifying my car. Will you be keeping your fogs then with the FMIC?

    I always end up double checking with Ben that I'm buying the right parts considering he's the one that will be fitting them as well

    Hmmmm well it may have been his- but your manifold and set up does look very familiar.

    Plus I am up at Parsons to often for my own good either with my car or my friends Leon. Which reminds me - I need to get booked in again for some bits and pieces! lol

    Well progress is going well. New engine is in with Dans Hybrid + K04. Cheers to Ben and Chris.

    Car looks good mate, was amusing how long you were looking at the relentless manifold before you cottoned on!

    Now you've seen how well haldex works in my car, you can push a bit more in yours..

    Here's one not long after it was started up:

    Cheers Chris, once I sort of the rear suspension issue and get the alignment done. I shall drive maybe 5 mph faster round corners lol.

    Looking forward to the FMIC getting fitted this week, injectors in and base map.

    I got a funny noise coming from the drivers side, I popped round Ben's yesterday afternoon to take a look and the cam belt cover was not seating quite right and it needed a push but I still have the issue though. Could be pulley or aux belt related?

    Took a look this AM, removed the aux belt and it looks very worn, so as recommended I will turn it inside out and will get another to replace it as its my daily from TPS. Its a pig of job when you are trying to put it back on, on your drive.

    Has the aux belt tensioner been removed at any point during the recent work?

    Yes, it's the tensioner off the amk that came out of it as the bam one was snapped from the crash. Whys that mate?

    on the S3 there is a bracket for securing the hard coolant pipe that feeds the expansion tank (IIRC)... I have seen (and done myself once) this fitted the wrong side of the tensioner which will cause it to pitch over towards the engine... this cause a whirring noise and damages the aux belt... easily done but it sits on the outside of the tensioner rather than sandwiched between the tensioner and the alternator bracket...

    Hi Guys, all fixed now. Tuffty, I had a look for the hardpipe, no obstructions there.

    So next piece of work is the change over of the old red Badger 5 v1 for the the v2 and too replace the red samco upper boost hoses with creationmotorsport ones in black, then its FMIC time.

    Looking for a black engine bay. Considering in the future getting the charge pipe and inlet powder coated.

    Ah I see. Just looked through pics I took during the build and it's definitely on the outside of the tensioner.

    More progress which is great!

    So the New Intercooler Hoses arrived a few weeks back so at last the red ones can go.





    Last part of puzzle, the toyosport aka "Wellycooler" arrived today, I cannot believe the bloody weight of it, its HUGE lol.





    Last week was a pretty bad week for me, I had a bright idea which turned into an absolute nightmare, remove the old v1 and replace with the v2.

    Not the brightest Idea as you can see but I found the grub screw, metal fragments, and at least I did not start the engine, it could be have been a lot worst.





    Would really like to thank Dan and Ben for there advise and also an additional thanks to Ben for fitting the billet wheel back on





    So eventually after 3 days I finally got the Badger 5 v2 TIP fitted




    But the bottom seems really tight and almost squashed. I need to give it a wiggle to get it totally right. For some reason mine feels quite soft at the bottom at the bend.


    Being stubborn and careful consideration I was going to ditch the catch can and keep the PCV and vent to air but I really wanted the catch can back on and here it is with PCV delete and vented to air under the car. It still bloody stinks




    Westys thread for catch can installation really helped as I was struggling to get the location just right and I am pleased with the outcome, I think it looks OEM.

    Ouch....very lucky you didn't turn the car over...not a nice picture that on the turbo

    So a catch can is not really necessary at all then; and you can just vent to air if need be from the PCV?

    Hey buddy, yeah true, I just went into panic mode and called good friends for advise. Lucky for me really I hope I've done 150 miles since with no issues touch wood!!

    I would not say its not necessary it depends on your point of view. I would say for me I did not like the idea of nothing catching the vapour.

    You can vent to air from the PCV from what I have read and people I have spoken too but its your shout.

    Haha....I've had to have a panic call as well to some people who are in the know...or I tend to post up on the VAG talk page or have a search on here!

    Good to hear there are no issues then...so going from a V1 to a V2....have you found/heard of any difference at all?

    I am still undecided what to do to be honest....I just want to get rid of as many crappy OEM black brittle pipes under the bonnet as I can! Ben yanked my SAI out and did the N249 by pass for me on the Friday just gone... so that's a start

    If I was to be totally honest I like the flexibility of the v1 compared to the v2 but 76mm vs 80mm size matters lol. I guess the dyno run and mapping will prove its worth.

    Little and often on the build is my approach at the moment. Need to sell and buy parts to move forward quickly, I really wanted to have completed the build by now but its just one of those things, sods law and been busy.

    When I bought the car the N249 had been done, does removing the SAI make a difference?

    Haha yep I suppose size does matter...I just can't justify the cost personally just yet as I've personally got more important things to tackle than get a 4mm larger TIP lol

    Im over 4 years of ownership and not finished/completed my car to a spec I am truly happy with tbh! Lol and the spare bedroom has very part I've replaced + god knows what else bunged in there! Haha

    Where wil you be taking her for a remap and RR out of interest?

    Well removing the SAI it removes one more thing that could go wrong really and makes the engine bay more neater without plastic hoses. Plus that SAI unit is bloody heavy - so saves weight also, plus it makes changing the oil filter in the future alot easier....so winner winner chicken dinner in my eyes :D Just need to get the small pump out and blank it on the engine with my forge blanking plate.

    Fair enough buddy. RR and Map will be somewhere, not sure yet, waiting on Ben. Won't be Bill or Nick for the CC as far as I am aware. The car will have a 5 stage map with TIV, als, nls etc...

    Just wondering does the SAI need to coded out of the map/ecu?

    When you are next at Ben's let me know I will go down?

    Haha- yeah we all end up waiting on Ben at some point- but I suppose good things come to those that wait

    5 Stage map!? Wehh heyyy!....so you will be getting a switch to change between everything? - I thought Nicki/Bill would be ideal for that tbh, especially with the TiV mapping.

    Won't be back to Ben's till maybe the end of the month - however I am in the process of setting up a meet in Brighton for Saturday 29th June...I'll set up a thread later today Martin so keep you eyes open in the SE section fella

    You do realise that there is a check valve at the servo and this one is not needed? its wrapped in heatshield behind the bulkhead heatshield
