    PD's A3 - Build thread

    Hi guys my name is PD and I'm from South Africa,

    I recently joined your forum and I thought I'd share my pride and joy.

    I've owned my car a little over a year and a half and have slowly modified it to where it is now, but I still have many more planned mods. I thought I'd update this thread in the stages I performed mods to where it is now.

    Please feel free to comment! And enjoy!

    When I got her she came with 126 000 km with full service history and some minor mods including:
    -Colour coded bumpers
    -S4 avus Rims
    -lowered springs
    -2.5" downpipe and exhaust

    I immediately installed an uprated dumpvalve (forge replica) and fitted a k&n flat panel filter.

    When I got her:




    Installed head unit (trim surround came later):


    6000k xenon's in the main beams and fogs:


    At this stage I started preparing for stage 2 software

    Forge TIP installed (what a mission!):


    Sprayed and carbon wrapped the interior:



    Then did my stage 2 software and added some stickers for the extra kw's:




    I thinks that's enough pics and updates for now! Enjoy!

    So the next mod I did was FMIC... Did this DIY with a piping kit I got off ebay. I had to modify the piping a bit as it was for a golf 4.

    Here are the results:

    Piping:


    Getting the pipes in the right places:


    Intercooler with size comparison:


    Starting to look good:


    Cooler behind the bumper:


    I didn't want to modify the crash bar too much so I made these brackets to mount it:


    All installed without the bumper (was cool driving around like this without the bumper ):



    Pics of the end result:





    Thanks for looking!

    very stealthy install

    Only think is I think you should have gone bigger.... being a k04 turbo and living where its hot all the time, i dont think the cooler can handle the heat tbh.

    Thanks man! Appreciate it... I didn't really want the boost pipes sticking out by my fog lights...

    i still only have my standard k03s installed... And I thought it wouldn't help getting a bigger cooler as even now the entire cooler isn't getting airflow?

    but yes I want WMI to help with the heat...

    LOL I get that a lot actually... People thinking its an S3... (Think its the Avus wheels...) Take it as a complement though!

    Have you felt no extra lag or anything like that? I can always go bigger later with bigger turbo hehe
