Oh and I wanted to say a huge thank you to Chris (rhubarb) for collecting the wheels from the seller for me. :beerchug:
Wheels just arrived. Thanks to rhubarb for some serious wrapping ;)
Heres a little snap of them next to the Yoko A048 semi slicks. Hoping to get to the tyre fitters this afternoon.
Is that a set of bremos in the corner?
They are a bit bright mate.
Should be good watching them go round the track.
Look sound mate.
i was really tempted to buy these as some winter wheels but just couldnt bring myself to run them with how bright they are lol, think they will look mint though for the track.
the red will look amazing on your car man! get some pics up asap :)
Are your yokos still road legal? would look epic driving to work on those!
Here's the stickies on the wheels:
And all bagged up and ready for ADI:
haha, *** wheel bags
fecking tart with your wheel bags!
Bags are for slags.....
(no, I have no idea what it means either, but it rhymes)
Fook you all. Those wheel bags are great. Keeps them clean and also makes them easy to carry.
That ment to say bags for fags prawn lol heheheheheh
You complete ****er!!!
I guess that throws my idea of red track wheels out of the window then :P
I too have realised I need a set of wheel bags in my life!
Well, Judgement Day (or Judgement Week in this case) is now apon us! I drop my car off tomorrow at RTech for a week for a custom map to make the most of all my mods. I'm hoping to brake the 300bhp barrier but there are doubts as to whether the Compression Ratio of the BAM pistons will be able to produce the goods. We know that a stock K04 is now capable of flowing enough air for 300bhp as it's been done a few times now. I cant wait to see how the mapping goes over the next week.
good look westy pal
Hope all goes well mate :arco:
pffft, CR determining whether it makes 300 or not. its all about timing, and hopefully you can have LOTS.
it'l make it.
Niki mapped a small port AUM last week on a ko4 which made 300bhp, 9.5:1 CR.
Westys is the opposite, 9:1 CR but large port head, so I guess we'll soon see what's more important :P CR or large port.
THankfully for me, the AGU has both :laugh:
It was dropped off this morning and left in the capable hands of Nick and the other RTech lads.
Nick said he'll try to keep me updated throughout the week as they work on it so I'll update this thread when I have some details.
Good luck westy. I made 288bhp and 293ftlb at bills the other day. No map changes to my cc stage 2. Relentless mani doing its job very well. I'm sure I could have made 300 had we wanted to. I have now fitted the k04 relentless hybrid and c3 manifold. Just waiting to get it mapped. Good times ahead
1st update from Niki at RTech is that the car has just been dyno'd as it is and is currently running 262bhp and 290lbft but there is a missfire at around 4K that they are investigating. I'm thinking it's the 2nd hand TFSI coils I'm running but we'll see what he finds.
Fixed! Was some torque intervention setting in the revo map. Just ran 290bhp on an RTech stage 1 map! Now the fun begins :)
wicked news mate! very excited for you indeed :)
Couple of quotes from Niki on FB:
"296bhp 320lbft with 21psi boost"
"fooooking animal on the road... never drove an S3 like it before. night and day.
spinning wheels between 3rd and 4th in the damp during logging. Thats with stock injectors"
That'll be the budget tyres then lol. I must change them!
Not bad figures so far considering they've not even started the custom map yet! :faint:
is it sad that I'm sat here reading that and it's making me grin like a big kid? and it's not even my car!
I remember how excited I felt every day getting updates from Niki on facebook about the progress.
I want some of that torque in my life!
No prawn it isnt lol, when i saw the 296bhp figure my face lit up lol, i cant wait to see what this makes, should be amazig to drive afterwards.
Its looking promising mate... hope there is a bit more for you...:icon_thumright:
