    Cleaned my maf today, didn't appear dirty but what a difference it made, used electrical contact cleaner and gently agitated it with a cotton bud then dried off with an air line.

    Car seems to have more poke and picks up better and so much smoother power, no more flat spots. Really impressed me for a standard 13year old a3

    I didn't buy these off Dave . He was just kind enough to lend me his so I could take the measurements and make a drawing to copy them . The hardest bit was finding the right grade aluminum . Just need to get longer wheel studs/bolts for them now . Thanks again Dave .

    Spent all night welding the head onto a nuclear reactor, which is pretty much all I've been doing for the past 3 weeks. Finished last night though so I can play with the car again now I'm off nights.

    In tthe past few weeks I've had Forge silicone coolant hoses turn up, s3 disks and carriers, and painted the spare calipers a dull gold colour. Polybushes for my dogbone mount, and a LCR splitter. I'm going to be busy on the weekend :D

    That's more impresssive than most posts so far in this thread. I'm sure in reality it's just like a big soldering iron, but it sure sounds impressive to me.

    The reactor head itself just looks like a big stainless pot with a load of cables poking out of the top. Then it's all tig welded on, around 60 runs all freehand around it's 32ft circumference. Took quite a while!

    Most of my mates are spending silly money on gifts and places to go for valentines day- I'm sat here calculating how much I have to spend on car parts and when to get them fitted lol

    Anyway- on subject....I'll be putting a few hundred miles on the S3 today- off to Suffolk to pick up a motor for a friend....so will check the tyre pressure and fluids before I set off- fingers crossed I don't come across a slow puncture or nail :-\

    The car is VAG but unfortunately doesn't have the 4 rings

    ALTHOUGH there is something very interesting at this garage with 4 rings that will warrant a pic off that I'll post up

    2 piece 330mm fronts to match the 2 piece rears, retains the Brembo calipers, but uses a 4mm spacer.

    LAVELY! For heat dissipation purposes I assume (not forgetting how aesthetically pleasing they are!! Hubba hubba!!). Also presume the 4mm spacer is on the carrier for the Brembo calipers?

    Fitted led side lights bulbs (quite fiddly with large hands) and attempted to remove maf to clean, only to find my anti tamper torx heads don't fit will remove the plastic part instead so the maf stays seated.

    Did oil and filter change, with 5w 40 triple QX fully synthetic and Bosch oil filter. Also did Haldex oil and filter, very easy job, once you know where the filter is and changed my fuel filter. The fuel filter had only done 9,000 miles so what was coming out was still very clean. Jobs for Sunday are my putting my NGK BKR7E plugs in and hopefully my hose and T piece turn up so I can get cracked on with the N249 bypass.
