    well i think the wheels are finally going to be collected today.

    updates are;

    car has done 400 miles on new build engine, so far so good

    going to go 2nd oil change at the weekend

    ordered a VFIZ that i've wanted for a long time

    after speaking to Dan (Beach Buggy Turbos) i've decided to upgrade to 3.5" decat and 3" downpipe that i'll be making myself

    so hoping once custom exhaust is made i can get it booked in for the long awaited mapping

    The last of the exhaust bits arrived saturday so gathered them all together this morning



    First job was to remove the current decat / downpipe



    3" decat into milltek downpipe



    Next was to start mocking up the new pipe

    Modified flange



    Straight 3.5" section



    Now pics got a lot less frequent as it was raining on me

    Trimmed, tacked and test fitted 3.5" 45*, 3.5" flexi, 3.5-3" reducer and 3" 45*







    Then added V band join



    Once it was all tacked and angles correct i added the 3" straight section



    Old vs new



    Dried off



    Will be getting it all tig welded this week, lambda and egt bosses welded on too, onve that is done some more titanium heatwrap and refit

    Great Build mate, just read through start to finish!
    One quick question though, what bulbs did you use in your headlights for the inidicators when you did de-tango? Where they just Diadem Halfords ones? They just seem to look quite unnoticeable in your headlights when not on!
    Cheers

    Thanks for all the comments guys, craig i just get an initial puff when booting it.

    I still use the car daily but don't like it much at the mo, was all geared up to get it mapped at R-tech and checked the day before and they'd changed policy to only map non mapped tfsi cars.

    They said i needed to return to stock file but would need to speak to my current mapper (MRC) after some interweb browsing it appears others who have tried to alter mrc map or restore ecu have been locked out. So i was forced to talk to mrc again, they said they could restore my stock file but would have to wait about a month and cost about £100

    At this point i thought eff it! Had enough of fighting a losing battle with this car, most of it due to bad mapping and 'reputable' companies. A week later my vfiz turned up but hasn't left the box as cba, two weeks later drivers window mech has bust and i'm really past caring at this point. I drive to work and home again, thats it, haven't been washing it cleaning inside or caring at all, after the map saga and over a month done so few miles in it, it really is a chore

    Well to cheer myself up i bought myself a mk1 golf to build to occupy me and stop me driving it through the front of mrc in a ball of firey glory :D

    Sorry to hear it mate. It is soul destroying when things don't go as planned, but you've come too far to turn back now. Why don't you speak to rick @ unicorn developments? You will probably have to leave it with him for a week but he'll sort it out. Knows his **** and decent bloke. I wouldn't go anywhere else now. I've had a ball ache with mine to be honest. Some days I just look at the wife and say, why didn't I just leave it alone lol, but then the next day I solve a problem, take it for a blast and say "this is why i didn't leave it alone!"
    This is my first project like this and sometimes I've questioned if I've bitten off more than I can chew, but then you see the results.

    I only go to work in mine, but as of May, the wife's new car arrives so mine becomes the show car which is how it needs to be.

    I totally feel your pain though mate. Just don't give up, you have a cracking example there, which in all honesty, inspired me to take the route I've taken. Go on holiday for a week or 2 lol!

    Now i know it works i made it a little more permanant today, i fitted it late last night just as a test fit so today made sure it was done right.

    The issue was the screws weren't quite long enough



    So decided it would be hard to locate similar screws 10mm longer so decided to mod the tb



    I took a 12mm drill bit and rilled the holes deeper







    Drilled them all out an extra 10-12mm deeper



    Had a better test today now i know it works and it definately feels 'stronger' it really needs mapping to take advantage but in my state of tune also feels smoother.
