    Take it off mate. Took me 10 mins. Only had 2 of the 8mm bolts still attached and they just snapped off when I put the ratchet on them. Then it was just a case of easing the corners off what was left of the rust mounts/brackets with a large flat blade screwdriver. Wish I'd done it sooner as it was so easy. Just jacked one side up and popped an axle stand in.

    Nice colour maty. Have a look for a polo 9n rear wiper to tidy the back up more and some mk4 aero wiper arms and blades. Oh and bin that split-r valve. They're not good for these engines at all.

    from here man, Audi TT 225 High-Flow Intake System. Also quick q whilst there are people in here, I removed the insulation from under my bonnet and the rubber sealer from around the scuttle at the bottom of the window, is this really a worth while mod? Air flow, cooler air etc, its made my pod, dv and turbo a **** load louder :S

    Changed the front drop links for some meyle ones, as the n/s was knocking again, so that's everything replaced on the front now, new shocks top mounts and bearings, arb bushes, new pas rack, tie rod ends, ball-joints and wishbone rear bush for solid ones and now these.You change one thing and it shows a weakness in the next

    Today I finished this little lot off for Bill to weld together


    ...although I did try picking up the bit I had just tacked together by grabbing the hot bit melting my glove to my thumb :0


    Also got the A2 on a ramp for a quick look over... found the exhaust heatshielding hanging off which would be the rattle I was getting (other than the dervelicious 3 pot up front of course lol)... so sorted that out...




    Cleaned off the back of the engine as the oil drain has a habit of coming loose so tweaked that a little tighter and will see if thats sorted it...


    ...slightly smaller turbo than the S3 has


    Opened the bonnet (this is one of the reasons I like the A2... super quirky lol)


    ..and check up top too tightening clips and a loose boost pipe bracket...


    ...and painted something on her too :D

    Fixed a few niggles on the car, including my pesky indicator (which turned out to be a loose connection. Tightened a few boost hoses and found one of the pipes with an odd angle! Fixed it but my headlights are broken! Someone hit my car and broke the bumper aswel as the light

    New rad hoses! Used a 7 piece Forge kit I got off eBay, all hoses were a good fit but one of the lower hoses come from the oil filter was touching the shifter thingy magigy on top of the box so I tie wrapped it up out of the way a bit. If the tie wrap breaks or goes brittle quickly I will have to make a bracket up

    Discovered my front anti roll bar has moved sideways in it's mounts, and the drop link thread where it goes through the arb is scoring the pancake pipe I'm thinking one or both of the plastic sleeves on the arb has cracked and is allowing the arb to move sideways, would a jubilee clip on the bar next to the bush either end sort it, thoughts anyone?

    Tell me about it, me and the mrs cars are absolutely covered in the stuff, PITA!

    On another note, today I changed the rocker cover gasket and plugs for NGK BKR7EIX, was supposed to be a quick job until the old crackle effect paint on the rocker cover (done by previous owner) was coming off in chunks, so spent 2 hours scraping off that lot and re-painting it satin black, all back together now, haven't driven it yet, hopefully it's all good.

    ...then this happened...


    ...so I painted something to get over it


    ...and got on with fitting my first derv belt...


    ...and fitted the painted bit :D

    Changed gearbox oil. Easy enough apart from the ratchet/socket got stuck and took an age to get off lol! All fine in the end.

    Gave it a quick wash afterwards.

    Measured BHP and torque on the Liquid: BHP 260, torque 270. Seems pretty good, but ideally I'd like to get Bill to work his magic on it. I'm a little uneasy at not knowing who did the remap.
