What makes these coils better than the standard ones? Do you feel any difference?
They look cool! Last longer and give a better spark.... But mainly look cool!
Lol they do look cool! I sprayed my standard ones red like the new ones because it looks cool
Update: Car will be going back to the tuners at the end of the week, hopefully it will come right now.
wish me luck.
i wish you luck lol
So the car is doing some crazy and wonderful things (sounds like an exhaust leak). So before it goes back to the tuner i will be changing all the gaskets, and hoping that the DP is not cracked. Will update soon.
Thanks for looking

Challenge Accepted :icon_thumright:
gona have a little surprise in a couple of months mooohahahah
So quite a big update. As some of the SA guys may know, i have been having constant issues with the car for the past 6 months. It as now gotten to a point where i have decided to buy a daily driver and make the Audi a project car.
The following is planned to happen in the next few months:
Stage 2 Progressive WMI kit
Manual Tension Cambelt Service
Unitronic Stage 2+ File
OEM Rings (if anyone can suggest an OEM replacement that is just as good or better please let me know)
IE Forged Rods with ARP Bolts
Flowing Cylinder Head
New IE Valve Guides
BC Fully Adjustable Coilovers
Powerflex Suspension Bushes
Gearbox (need some insight on what can be done to strengthen these boxes)
GKN Inner & Outer CV's
All Suspension bits
New Garrett K04-023
New full 76mm Exhaust
Battery Relocation (to the rear)
That is all i can remember at the moment, if you guys have any suggestions please do not hesitate to comment as i would like to build the car right the first time.
Thanks for looking.
Why don't you raise the compression with some higher compression 1.8t pistons.
Will there be any real benefit with the setup i am running?
dude dont give me more work lmao!
just keep that comp ratio
Sorry, I forgot yours is an A3, I think the compression is already 9.5:1.
S3's are 9.0:1
Dedicated project FTMFW!!!
I shall work you to death
Ahhh i see thanks though!
Thanks dude! It's about time!
So any suggestions on the gearbox side? Will vr6 internals be fine or should I opt for something else?
Won't the vr6 have different ratios?
Looking at Prawns gearbox history, you best off upgrading the transmission oil
Yeah it does have a little longer ratios but i'm willing to live with that if the box doesn't break. I'm on my 3rd box now.
I wonder how much of a difference the box oil will make?
Prawn should be able to answer that soon. I see his box is back on the engine.
This morning (after not being able to sleep) i thought i would get started on stripping out the car, so it can be sent in for the half cage.
Just come general pics of what came out and what it looks like now. Still a long way to go.
Stay tuned and thanks for looking.
Small update, I have cleaned up the rear and started sourcing small things for the battery relocation which will be done this weekend. The battery will sit in the spare wheel arch.
The earth strap, positive terminal and wiring to run for the battery.
Just waiting on my battery box then I will start this weekend with Miggz and Dwayne. Thanks for looking.
Nice progress bud!
Awesome man! Getting things sorted!
YAY finally got my battery box! now just have to fit it this weekend.
