    So it has been a while...


    Lambos are of the car till shows start up again


    Car had been mapped on standard turbo which started to give way as the bearings became loose... but luckly enough time to get a rolling road in...


    this should have been about the 180bhp mark but as the turbo was F'd it only got this...





    That was november time towards the end of the month i got hold of a ths decat pipe transformed the car completely in terms of noise from what i could notice.


    Not long after (couple of days) the turbo blew


    Spoke to Tom at Turbo Dynamics and he supplied me with a Stage 2 Hydrid


    Stage 2 Hybrid Turbo comprises:


    Hi flow GT20 compressor wheel
    Re-profiled compressor housing to suit
    360 degree thrust bearing
    Modified turbine wheel blades to reduce backpressure
    Blueprinting of turbo to motorsport standards
    Estimated Power Output: Approx 240-260 BHP


    i also had it upgraded to billet internals.


    car ran alot smoother without any further mapping once it had ran in the oil change done car went for mapping again after alot of adjustment from my mate car is amazing preformance and timing absolute perfect


    rolling road happening again this saturday at Surrey Rolling Road.


    My mate that does the mapping his name is bobby


    this was is project couple of years ago


    Golf ARL PD300


    He located in West London if anyone would like any enquires regarding any mapping please pm me more then happy to get you in contact with him!


    Big thanks to Yaash MotorSports once again for all mechanic work


    yaash


    Had some yellow laminx put on the fogs





    Love them with the mtec golden style bulbs from HID Direct...





    over 200bhp and 50mpg can't go wrong :lol:


    sorted some sounds out...


    had my mate made me a box
    i got some suede to wrap the box





    JL Audio
    10w6v2


    made sure the boot stayed nice and tidy and big thanks to the guys at car audio security sorting out the amp.





    also had JL Audio door components 6.5 C3's fitted along with a JL amp e250


    one random picture of her clean







    Oh Yeah how can i forget

    Looking good, are you not experiencing a lot rattle with the new sound system? You have it on top of a flimsy movable spare tyre cover.

    sorry for late reply

    The audi from what i thought was running amazing however past month or so lots of white smoke on cold start up.

    the car went to rolling road and got 193bhp with a stage 2 hybrid so there is a problem just trying to get it sorted as we have estimated it at 220bhp-ish

    see dyno sheet below mate

    So were do i start its been a while been so busy setting up new business hardly get time to go onto forums.


    Well the smoking issue is now sorted. Turned out that a3 have head problems! Great way to find out!


    Took the car down to yaash motors again the audi second home lol





    Got to work on it straight away



    Head And Turbo Out



    Three Cracks On The Head Just Like This



    Turbo Bit Oily



    So A New Head Was In Order and Thought I May as well Change The Cams



    Sent The Turbo Back To Turbo Dynamics To Check The Balancing And Give It A Good Clean


    Everything Put Back Together







    While the car was also there one thing was missing which was bugging me as it was making the car uneven.





    Picked The Car Gave It A Quick Wash And Polish





    This is what stopped the car from bugging me.


    Upgraded rear brakes to match the fronts and a fresh coat of paint.

    nice car. never understood the 'no test drives' statement though. I know a lot of adverts state this but who would buy a car without driving it first?

    Car looks awesome buddy, If I didn't already have an A3 I would definitely buy this one, very well looked after!

    Just wondered about the head being cracked and what type of smoking issue you had? Get a bit of smoke on my 170 if I start it up then leave it sitting ticking over, smoke appears to be blue-ish. Doesn't really smoke much when driving unless it's being pushed hard.

    Sound anything like it?

    reason being that some people just say they are interested just to have go in it, and if something was to happen then what?

    i had a big cloud of smoke on start up! even when driving slowly! once engine reached temperature it calmed down a "tad"! run some tests to be sure! coolant test is a good place to start!
