    g60leigh build thread. it's gonna get messy


    I have been a member of the forum for a while now, but spent most of my time reading others builds and asking for help and info, I have added a few posts on my projects in the past but nothing to major
    I have been meaning to create a build thread for a little while but my personal build has been a little slow.
    Until now, as it seems to be taking off and things are starting to get MESSY!.

    I will throw together the bits and pieces of my build in here in the hope it is of some help or inspiration to others. It will most likely not be in true chronological order as my memory for dates is appalling.
    I started off with no intention to heavily modify as I loved the S3 in standard form. That did not last too long though.
    Rather than go through the order in which I have added things, here is a list of the spec changes to my car now:
    ENGINE:
    Porsche Alloy Oil Filler Cap & Porsche Alloy Coolant Cap (From ScottB5 Group buy)
    Forge FMDV008 Recirculation Dump Valve
    Revo Stage 2 ECU Map
    Badger 5 V2 TIP with J&R Cone filter and Heat Shield
    TFSI Coil pack upgrade with NGK Iridium Spark Plugs
    Evap removal
    Miltek Cat back stainless steel exhaust
    AH Fabrications V1 front mount intercooler
    Phenolic inlet manifold gasket
    Relentless V2 tubular steel manifold
    Relentless V3 3” Down pipe and 200 cell Sports catalytic converter
    Oil catch can and PCV removal (soon to be replaced with a new one of my own design)
    Titanium manifold heat shield
    Carbon fibre engine cover
    AEM 30-3000 Progressive WMI
    CG Motorsports 5 paddle clutch
    LUK DMF flywheel.

    CHASSIS:
    17" Ronal Avus Alloy wheels
    Neuspeed Front Anti Roll Bar (Poly bushed)
    R32 Rear Anti Roll Bar (Poly bushed)
    Powerflex Poly Dog bone Bushes
    XYZ Coilovers
    Poly bushed Rear Trailing Arms
    Compbrake adjustable Tie Bars
    LCR Brembo’s with B5 330mm 2 Piece Rotors
    ATE Superblue Racing brake fluid
    B&M Shifters short shift

    INTERIOR:
    TT Pedal Set
    S3Dave stainless foot rest
    Ambient Lighting Mod
    LED Interior light upgrade
    Retrofit RNS-D Double Din Satellite Navigation (With Xcarlink iPod connection)
    AEM boost gauge in custom vent pod


    EXTERIOR:
    Audi TT Fan Style Washer Jets
    VW Golf R32 Front Wiper Arms & Aero Blades
    VW Polo 6N Rear Wiper Arm & Aero Blade
    VW Yeti Stubby Aerial
    German pressed plates with Audi Sport surround
    Black Plasti Dip door blades and rear bumper trim.

    On the incoming list:
    Performance parameter display – displays gauge info on the OEM DIS – Supreme Technology & Engineering I will do a full write up on this when completed

    BBS RC041 split rims


    Custom oil catch can



    Comfort (1 touch 3 blink) indicator mod

    8P S3 chrome trim modded headlight switch



    Engine rebuild with IE rifle drilled rods, Bosch 550 injectors Stage 4 Hybrid turbo and custom map :D

    This is the turbo I've got:

    MD421 - Stage 4 Hybrid turbo comprises:

    High Flow K06 Billet Aluminium Lightweight Compressor Wheel
    Re-profiled compressor housing
    Turbo Dynamics designed uprated 360 degree thrust kit
    K04 Large trim turbine wheel with lightening modifications for quicker response
    Re-profiled turbine housing to suit new turbine wheel
    Turbocharger fully blueprinted to motorsport standards
    Max recommended boost: 24-26 PSI
    Estimated Power Output: 340-360 bhp with correct supporting modifications








    Its second hand but only got a few miles on it.
    Seems to be in excellent order but getting it checked prior to fitting.

    I think he's wondering how he's getting on fitting the chrome nob to his 8L switch as he attempted it before. Dani, I'll let you know when I got it.

    As Scott says the progress of the 8P headlight switch is in his hands.

    Received the oil tank today. My fag packet cad design is slightly off so will take a little more tweaking than I had hoped but still confident that it will work and be a neat finish utilising otherwise dead space.

    Update on the performance parameter display.

    😤 not good unfortunately. I've been working closely with the developers of this and even had a replacement box through but not making any progress. Seems that for reasons unknown this is not compatible with the A3/S3 DIS
    I'm not entirely sure what differs between ours and the A4 or TT ones but cannot make it work. 😭

    I agree that they seem to be so elusive and pricey. Only heard good things so I'm hoping its worth it.

    Would of thought these days a tuner could have a look at one and write their own equivalent code to make an alternative version.

    Quick job for today.
    I'm pretty limited to what I can do at the minute after my spine surgery.

    Grabbed this after looking for a decent car hands free kit

    Was looking at parrot kits etc but was this one was pointed out to me by Scott.

    If you have an xcarlink, get one!

    Literally plugs into the xcarlink box. Plug in mic and pair it up to phone. Job done and as a bonus can bluetooth music from phone too.
