    And so it begins!

    Decided to start getting all the parts I will need to finish up the build. Currently aiming at around 350awhp!

    First part collected. I got myself a set of IE Rods



    Still to get in the coming weeks/months:
    - Calico bearings
    - Head studs (ARP/OEM?)
    - Required gaskets
    - Rings
    - Stage 1 WMI

    Any thing else you guys could suggest?

    As a starting piont, I had the car dyno'd yesterday at FRnR SA. Its a 2wd dyno so that Haldex was unplugged and the car run.

    I was a little disappointed to see the reading at 234whp and 300nm. But then again the car does feel a lot stronger than that.

    She will be going in next week for a re-map on the stock internals to see what we can get on the current set-up and get a proper tune once the internals are done.

    Dropped the car off at FRnR SA on Saturday morning for a custom tune. We not going to push it to hard at the moment due the internals still being stock.

    Will let you guys know the oucome once I get her back tomorrow.

    PS. I will post more pics as requested once I have her back

    So guys, I got car back from FRnR last night.

    Power and torque has had a huge jump. Currently sitting at 298whp (222.6wkw) and 372nm!!! 8-)

    They actually managed to get it up 322whp but decided to de-tune to be on the safe side due to the internals still being stock. Overall, she seem to be alot more refined than before and Im really happy with the way she performs now.

    Just a few small issues for me to sort out and which I will get to once we begin the engine re-build.

    From what I'm told, we can get much out of the car but for now he is playing it safe with the tune.

    @Gizmo - Graph is actually relatively smooth, before and after. I will post the dyno graph as soon as I get to a scanner.

    I know its a bit much for the stock rods at the moment so I'm really pushing to get the rods done ASAP.

    Just a few pics of the car as promised. Please excuse how dirty she was when these were taken. I will be taking more this weekend once she has had a good clean and engine bay neatened up as well.







    On another note, I will be doing some maintenance work on the car over the next few days and weekend. The water pipe from the auxilliary pump to the turbo now has a whole in it as it was rubbing on the v-belt. Getting that sorted out this afternoon.

    The oil pump seems to be on its way out as I keep getting a warning on the dash (can't see what it is as the LCD is dead) and the lifters have become very noisy. So all points to the oil pump/pressure.

    New pump and oil pick-up have been purchased and will be replaced this weekend.

    Lets hope all goes well!!!

    Be very careful when you remove the hose from the aux pump. If its the original pump the plastic part on the pump will most probably be very brittle and snap off as you try remove the rubber hose.

    That just may be done sooner than I thought Decided I'm going to go the full route one time and do the pistons and head work as well.

    Yesterday after work, I got busy getting the Auxilliary water pipe repaired.

    Removed the pipe and found the leak.

    The pipe:


    The leak:


    You can actually see the lines as from the v-belt

    I then took this through to a place called City Hydraulics in Randburg. They really are very helpful. They sorted the pipe out for me woth no issues and it didn't even cost me anywere near the R1700 that Audi quoted me a new pipe!

    The fixed pipe:





    We will be tackling the oil pump and pick-up this weekend.
