    Rolty's A3 1.8 Turbo build thread

    Hi guys,
    As the title of this thread suggests i've made this thread to keep you all upto date on any progress i make on my car.
    Below are some pics of my car in current form,with some pics of the brake mods i have done so far

    mods to date-

    alpine/ipod headunit
    vibe 12inch sub enclosure (purely for my music tastes)
    h.i.d xenon headlight kit
    front black diamond 20 groove discs
    ebc greenstuff front pads
    painted front/rear calipers with audi decals

    I'm going to be upgrading everything on my car starting with handling,then power and finally cosmetics.
    so hopefully you lot can give me some advice and pointers along the way thanks for looking.


    Pics down below as links broken

    Yeah total kick in the back bass
    i would suggest you look at getting the Wietec Ultra GT 40mm lowering kit. Similair fee to the standard ride but a much better feeling round corner and looks better. Even more so when u get them 18`s on it.

    yeah it is abit of a mine field. Only problem i found lowering it 40mm was the drivers side drive shaft catches on the arb when turning right full lock. I need to get a Adjustable front drop links to sort that out.

    Don't start it too late in the day if it does turn-up. If things start to snag, the last thing you want to be doing is lying under the car as the light starts to fade!!!!

    Been there, done it - don't recommend it!!

    it's pretty handy having an off-roader for a few more days as one of the main roads near me is being torn up and resurfaced,mind you having to drive 5 mile an hour to not put any dents in the 18's is a pain in the backside!

    just ordered a forge 007p dv,so in a couple of days i will have that to fit and test out.aswell as still waiting for my kw suspension to turn up!was looking at replacing the panel filter,but as some have said the standard one is fine until the power requires a better one,so i'm gonna leave it until big power requires an upraged 1 and i'm thinking of getting an enclosed air induction kit maybe around the stage 2 remapping time.
    so for now -

    To fit on arrival

    kw suspension springs/dampers
    forge 007p diverter valve

    Next up

    milltek/custom exhaust

    Patience young padawan!! - it's only been a week, but I know how annoying it can be waiting, esp if you've ordered for a weekend job and it doesn't turn up

    Been doing searches today for cold air feeds (on standard air box) and CAIs - mind's spinning at the mo!! Looks like there's a twin intake comming from Forge soon that looks nice - but looks like it needs a LOT of space. I was "tinkering" today trying to find a way to install a "Heath Robinson" air feed but the engine bay's so busy - but this hot weather seems to be killing my car at the mo

    [edit] can't stand spelling mistakes!!!

    yep,it is very annoying waiting,especially when they tell you it'll will be delivered no later than thursday!dogh! but all will come together in time plus now i'll have another mod to do at the same time so it's all good!
    Do you have a link for the forge intake?
    I'm definantly not going to be simply changing the panel filter as i do intend to make big bhp in the future so it's just a waste of money?

    It's still a development bit of kit, but they're testing on a Golf - so it wouldn't be hard to adapt - but it might be enough to give you some ideas for making your own maybe?

    looks like a nice bit of kit!think if it ever comes out for the 1.8t it'll be a right pig to cram 2 CIA's in our tight engine bays!bad enough working on it now lol.
    maybe battery re-location is a possibility?would make more room for 2 CIA's?
    i'm not going to think about air filters until the time comes it's racking my brain lol

    To be honest, I think you'd need to be looking at BIG power to start even considering one. What I was thinking though, is with one mounted at the front - getting lots of good "high" pressure air - and the other mounted into the existing cold-air feed location - getting air at a different pressure (and probably temperature? ) - would one counteract the other?

    Then again, as mentioned in that thread - you assume that Forge know what they're doing?!

    great news!
    i went out and got some paint mixed up for my engine cover this morning and when i returned a lovely man from ups greeted me with my kw suspension !well pleased it's finally here!
    only thing is my spring clamps are in my aunts garage,dogh!so looks like i'll be fitting them this weekend.
    also around half hour ago my forge oo7p dv was delivered,but it's hacking it down at the moment here so i'll fit that when/if it clears up.
    so all in all been a great day so far,i'm painting my engine cover in the shed at the minute thought i'd pop on here while the last coat of primer is drying to share my good news
    I will hopefully have the engine cover finished today and i'll be doing a little writeup maybe later on this evening so check it out

    Hey! I fitted my forge 007p valve when i got home from work this afternoon and took it for a test run, and i'm well happy with it!
    It definantly picks up the changes in gear,seems to make the turbo respond a tiny bit faster too so once a few more engine mods/maps are done i should notice a considerable difference!
    Finally while i was on here i uploaded the pics of my freshly painted engine cover which are below I have also just wrote a step-by-step guide of how i done this, check it out here Painting Engine Cover

    I'm really pleased with how the cover came out and i will get some pics of it back on the engine once i get the time
    Now at the weekend i will be fitting my kw springs/shocks
    Starting to take shape now

    hi guys,just a little update and a few pics for you.gave the car a detail yesterday with some new products i picked up.still haven't fitted the engine cover back onto the car as my dog had a little mental moment and knocked it off the kitchen table!just finished repairing it so will get pics of it once it's back on.so...the pics i have took show the latest additions to my car,a kw 40mm suspension setup,in-pro s3 style chrome mirrors and some aero wipers.also have the forge oo7p valve fitted now but don't think you can see it in the pics.
    cars starting to look and perform how i want it now,so i think the next thing i'll be looking at is a remap and an exhaust setup to start upping the power gains.

    thanks matey planned on doing them the same as the car as a subtle mod,turned out better than i thought.after i get the remap sorted out i'll be changing over the hoses to blue silicone for a bit of extra colour and protection under the bonnet,also thinking of painting up some other bits too but i'll wait and see what happens after the remap
