    My B7 S-Line 2.0T

    Hi guys. My name is Dwayne. I'm from Johannesburg in South Africa. I currently own a 2006 B7 2.0T S-Line. I purchased it in Sept 2013 after previously owning a 9n3 Polo GTI...

    Quite alot has been done since then. I will add all the pics I have as I go along. ..

    This was the 1st time I saw her. It was traded in here at work. I work at a BMW dealer.

    A pic of my Polo and the Audi...

    So after taking it home, 3 days later I had trouble with it. At 3000rpm the power would just die. So to cut a long story short, I replaced the HPFP as the N276 was cracked and the piston tip was toast. The follower was also worn so it was replaced. 6.6bar fuel filter and RS4 valve was fitted... eventually the main cause was a worn cam follower lobe on the intake cam...

    Attachment 28321

    After the fueling issue being sorted I loaded Unitronic Stage 2 software, flashed by Yosh at Dark Artz Performance. I had the downpipe fabricated before the map was loaded. Its a custom downpipe fabricated by my mate Nishen at TMSS Motorsport.

    Absolute flawless craftsmanship!!

    Shortly after doing all this the cluth started slipping with the extra power. So I pulled the gearbox quick here at work one evening and fitted a new clutch kit. ..

    So I decided to respray my mag wheel center caps, as they were peeling badly... changed the chrome bits too

    Heatsoak has been a problem for me and the twin cooler setup was just not cutting it. I had my fmic from my polo (550x180x65) so I decided to fit it in the Audi. My mate at TMSS Motorsport also did the boost piping for me...

    the smaller coolers were not bad to be honest. But for my future plans they will not cut it
